Error description

  • In 7.0.0.9 the .pf files in the java/lib/cmm or java64/lib/cmm
    cannot be accessed via a call that does not supply the absolute
    path.  However, there are several functions that can use these
    .pf files which do not take a file name parameter.  Also, these
    files can be called under the covers by several different
    functions.
    
    This behavior was introduced in 7.0.0.9 due to a security fix
    added to Java (Sun bug 6631533).
    
    Some of the errors seen could be are:
    
    java.io.IOException: Cannot open file sRGB.pf
    at java.awt.color.ICC_Profile.getInstance(ICC_Profile.java:970)
    
    or
    
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
    Can't load standard profile: GRAY.pf
    at java.awt.color.ICC_Profile$2.run(ICC_Profile.java:926)
    
    or
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
    at java.awt.color.ICC_Profile.intFromBigEndian(ICC_Profile.java)
     at
    java.awt.color.ICC_Profile.getProfileClass(ICC_Profile.java:1169
    

Local fix

  • 1. If the application directly calls a .pf file using the file
       name use the absolute path of the .pf file for the call.
    
    2. If the application calls the .pf files indirectly please do
       the following:
    
    a. cd to /WAS_HOME/AppServer/java64/lib/cmm or
       WAS_HOME/AppServer/java/lib/cmm directory depending on if you
       are running in 64 bit mode or not.
    
    b. Issue the ls -E command
    
    c. The display above should show the symlinks and the actual
       file they reference
    
    d. The path given after the -> should be where the actual .pf
       file is located.  However, you should check this by issuing
       the ls -E in the directory given for the symlink reference.
    
    e. Remove the symlink using the rm command.
    
    f. From the WAS_HOME/AppServer/java64/lib/cmm or
       WAS_HOME/AppServer/java/lib/cmm directory copy the real .pf
       file using the cp command.

    Some of the errors that could be seen are:
    
    java.io.IOException: Cannot open file sRGB.pf
    at java.awt.color.ICC_Profile.getInstance(ICC_Profile.java:970)

    at
    java.awt.color.ICC_Profile.getProfileClass(ICC_Profile.java:1169
    
    
    This is due to the .pf files at the java/lib/cmm and
    java64/lib/cmm locations being symbolic links pointing to
    files in the read-only file system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere configuration script which creates the symbolic
    links for the file system has been updated to no longer create
    links for the files at the java/lib/cmm and java64/lib/cmm
    locations.  Instead, these files are copied into the
    configuration file system to prevent the aforementioned errors.
