Error description

  • An error in a component referred to as 'ObjectManager' is
    exposed by IBM WebSphere Business Events (WBE).
    The component is used within both IBM WebSphere Application
    Server Version 7.0, and WebSphere Business Events.
    
    When a WebSphere Business Events server(WBE) is killed and
    restarted, some of the events stored in a ObjectManager
    TreeMap are not processed.
    
    The iterator on the TreeMap fails to return all objects that are
    in the store, when it is being used to remove objects.
    The number of items in the TreeMap is also reported incorrectly.
    

Local fix

  • Restart the WBE server

    ****************************************************************
    ObjectManager is a component that is part WebSphere Application
    Server, and other products such as IBM WebSphere Business
    Events. It provides a transactional persistent store of
    objects. The specific component interface of ObjectManager
    behaving incorrectly is a persistent TreeMap. In certain
    circumstances an iterator on the TreeMap might not return all
    objects in the map, or report an incorrect size, if an
    iterator is being used to both read and delete objects
    persisted in the store.
    
    The problem is not known to affect users of WebSphere
    Application Server directly, which does not use the specific
    interface that is affected.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix for this APAR updates the ObjectManager component to
    include the fix for the TreeMap interface, that corrects the
    iterator/removal logic.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.13.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
