Error description

  • When the Compensation Service is not enabled on the
    WebSphere Application Server,  the server does not create a new
    instance for it. This means that a later check on whether the
    instance is started results in a NullPointerException.

    ****************************************************************
    When the Compensation Service is not enabled on the WebSphere
    Application Server,  the server does not create a new instance
    for it. This means that a later check on whether the instance
    is started results in a NullPointerException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A Null check has been added to prevent the
    NullPointerException. The correct
    XAResourceNotAvailableException is then thrown and the error
    is logged.
    
    APAR PK15644 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.35 of WebSphere Application Server V6.1.
