    1) Create a file called osgi-debug.txt somewhere on the
    filesystem
    2) Edit that file to contain the following lines (nothing else
    is necessary):
    
    org.eclipes.osgi/debug=true
    org.eclipse.osgi/debug/loader=true
    3) Add a system property to the server JVM, with the property
    name "ws.osgi.debug" and value of the location of the file.

    *                  Application Server JAX-WS Web services      *
    *                  applications which include Jakarta Commons  *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The JAX-WS Web service application may  *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply a fixpack that contains this APAR.    *
    ****************************************************************
    When a JAX-WS Web service application includes the Jakarta
    Commons Logging classes within their application or classpath,
    a ClassNotFoundException may occur.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem occurs when the JAX-WS application uses
    logger classes (like Log4JLogger) that are not contained in
    the JAX-WS runtime.
    
    The JAX-WS runtime is corrected to tolerate this scenario by
    using its own logger during its own internal processing.
    
    APAR PM21839 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level (Fix Pack) 7.0.0.15 of WebSphere
    Application Server
