APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Lookup of Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) emitter factory and
    related components from an external WebSphere Application
    Server client fails:
    
    Could not invoke method getObjectInstance on object of
    type
    com.ibm.ws.naming.urlns.genericURLContextFactory.
    parm0=java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
    at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
    
    Therefore no CBE is emitted from the client app to the CEI
    infrastructure.
    
    Code change in com.ibm.events.client_6.1.0.jar needed.
    

Local fix

  • Explicitely define the provider URL and the initial context
    factory in the client application:
    
    Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
    env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
      "com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory");
    env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "corbaloc:iiop:localhost:2809");
    Context ic = new InitialContext(env);
    
    A warning/runtime exception will still be logged but the CBE
    will be correctly emitted.

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1 and V7.0 that also have Common  *
    *                  Event Infrastructure (CEI) deployed and     *
    *                  want to use the Common Event                *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Common Event Infrastructure fails       *
    *                      when run from the WebSphere             *
    *                      Application Server client.              *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The following error occurs when trying to use CEI with the
    Application Server client:
    [10/02/16 16:24:04:765 JST] 0000000a  3
    UOW=9-fc00fc-8468171:whebi1
    source=com.ibm.websphere.naming.genericURLInitialContextFactory
    org=IBM
    prod=WebSphere component=Application Server
    thread=[P=10546:O=0:CT]
              Could not invoke method getObjectInstance on object
    of type
    com.ibm.ws.naming.urlns.genericURLContextFactory.
    parm0=java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
     at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native
    Method)
    ...
    Caused by: javax.naming.ConfigurationException: There is no
    name space
     at
    com.ibm.ws.naming.urlns.genericURLContextFactory.isNameSpaceAcce
    ssable(genericURLContextFactory.java:90)
     at
    com.ibm.ws.naming.urlbase.UrlContextFactory.getObjectInstance(Ur
    lContext Factory.java:73)
    
    This happens because the CEI client tries to lookup an
    Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) in the local context . The local
    context being the context of the Application Server client
    context which did not contain any EJBs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Now CEI checks if the local context is the same as the context
    of the server in which the CEI EJB is bound.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.35 and 7.0.0.13. Please refer to the
