Error description

  • A WS-Notification message throws WSWS3227E:
    org.xml.sax.SAXParseException:  The namespace prefix was not
    declared.
    
    
    The WS-Notification Message Binder uses a representation of
    toXMLString that does not include all namespace declarations
    from the ancestor elements.

    ****************************************************************
    This is because the WS-Notification Message Binder uses a
    representation of toXMLString that does not include all
    namespace declarations from the ancestor elements. While the
    API allows this parameter to be true or false it has been hard
    coded to be false for performance reasons.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We have added a JVM custom property that allows the customer
    to override the default value of false and set it to true.
    When true the representation contains all of the data in the
    SOAPElement and its descendents AND includes all namespace
    declarations from the ancestor elements. When the toXMLString
    API is not available then an iterator has been written to
    obtain all the namespace declarations from the ancestor
    elements and add them separately.
    
    The custom property that has been added is:
    
    "sib.wsn.client.includeNSDecls"
    
    To set this: Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere
    application servers > server_name, and then, in the Server
    Infrastructure section, Click Java and process management >
    Process definition > Control > Java virtual machine > Custom
    properties
    
    Then define a new property and in the Name field, type the
    property name "sib.wsn.client.includeNSDecls". In the Value
    field, type the value "true". (The default value is false).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.15.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
