Error description

  • When scanning the JAXB class for before/after events inherited
    methods are ignored in WebSphere Application Server's
    XLXP2 unmarshaller. However the JRE implementation does scan
    base class(es) for these methods.
    In V7 it is possible to use an implementation that is picked up
    from JRE. Before the upgrade (before 7.0.0.29), JRE
    implementation was  used. After the upgrade there could have
    been change in environment/system properties set enabling use
    of WebSphere's JAXB implementation.
    One of such properties is
    -Dcom.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.opti.level=0
    which will force use of JRE jaxb implementation, default value
    in V is 1.
    This APAR will add the  ability to enable calling inherited
    (un)marshall events in IBM's XLXP2 JAXB implementation.
    To enable this functionality 2 system properties were added.
    com.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.InheritUnmarshallCallbacks
    com.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.InheritMarshallCallbacks
    Default value is false for both.
    This APAR will apply to V7, V8, V8.5 and V9.

    ****************************************************************
    If the JAXB classes have a parent and a child that implement
    beforeMarhall, afterMarshal, beforeUnmarshal, afterUnmarshal
    methods, only the version from parent class will be run.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added the  ability to enable calling inherited
    (un)marshal events in IBM's XLXP2 JAXB implementation.
    To enable this functionality 2 system properties were added:
    com.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.InheritUnmarshallCallbacks
    com.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.InheritMarshallCallbacks
    
    Default value for both is false.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 9.0.0.2, 8.5.5.11, 8.0.0.13, and 7.0.0.43.  Please
