Error description

  • Problem : Creating a shared library using wsadmin scriping is
    appending some garbage characters at the end of classpath value
    in library.xml file when the specified classpath ends with
    '\n' after upgrading to V6.1.0.31 from V6.1.0.27.
    
    Sample commands:
    
    from java.lang import String
    from os.path import *
    
    serv = AdminConfig.getid('/Cell:cell_name/Node:node_name/')
    print serv
    classpathValues = '${SHARED-LIBS}' + os.sep + 'TEST_FOLDER' +
    os.sep + 'TEST_SUB_FOLDER' + os.sep + '\n'
    classpath = [String(classpathValues)]
    AdminConfig.create('Library', serv, [['name', 'MAL_TEST_LIB'],
    ['classPath', classpath ]])
    AdminConfig.save()
    
    Results:
    ========
    At V6.1.0.31/33:
    <libraries:Library xmi:id="Library_1286188199111"
    name="MAL_TEST_LIB">
    <classPath>${SHARED-LIBS}/TEST_FOLDER/TEST_SUB_FOLDER/&#xA;
    </classPath>
    </libraries:Library>
    
    
    Tested same script on 6.1.0.27 and did not get the encoding in
    libraries.xml
    <libraries:Library xmi:id="Library_1286187974483"
    name="MAL_TEST_LIB">
    
    <classPath>${SHARED-LIBS}/TEST_FOLDER/TEST_SUB_FOLDER/</classPat
    h>
    </libraries:Library>

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and   *
    *                  V7 users of wsadmin scripting in jython     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Garbage characters appear at the end    *
    *                      of the classpath in Library.xml for a   *
    *                      shared library creation using           *
    *                      wsadmin scripting.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The wsadmin jython parser does not trim the ending '\n'
    character. This leads to the garbage characters showing at the
    end of the classpath value in the library.xml file for a
    shared library created with a specified classpath that ends
    with '\n'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We now trim the ending '\n' of the classpath value in the
    wsadmin jython parser implementation to eliminate the ending
    garbage characters generation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.35 and 7.0.0.15.  Please refer to the
