    InvalidAttributeValException when a J2EEResourceProperty

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Verison 6.1 and Version 7.0          *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Relax the restriction on some special   *
    *                      characters in a J2EEResourceProperty    *
    *                      config object name value.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The config service does not allow a name value of a config
    object, such as Property or J2EEResourceProperty, to contain
    special characters including '/\[]%:<>: ...'.  You are not
    able to create a J2EEResourceProperty config object when the
    config object name value contains special characters using
    wsadmin and it will fail with an InvalidAttributeValException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent the InvalidAttributeValException, implemented the
    config service code so that it relaxes the restriction on the
    name value of a config object "Property" and
    "J2EEResourceProperty" containing special characters as needed.
    
    The fix will allow you to create a J2EEResourceProperty name
    value containing special characters when the system property
    com.ibm.websphere.management.configservice.validatePropNames=fal
    se is set.  The system property allows you to disable
    character validation for the name value of  "Property" and
    "J2EEResourceProperty" config objects in wsadmin.  When using
    wsadmin in connected mode, the property should be set at the
    deployment manager server using the
    AdminTask.setJVMSystemProperties command or through the
    administrative console.
    
    When using wsadmin in LOCAL mode (conntype=none), the property
    can be passed in as a javaoption:
    
    wsadmin -conntype none -javaoption
    "-Dcom.ibm.websphere.management.configservice.validatePropNames=
    false"
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.37 and 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the
