APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the application server processes shared libraries for
    dependent JAR information, it mistakenly treats directories
    with a ".jar" extension as if it were a JAR file.  This can
    cause a FileNotFoundException that is logged in FFDC and the
    SystemOut.log.  This message is benign, but can cause confusion.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 who use shared libraries        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Shared library directories that end     *
    *                      with ".jar" are treated as JAR files.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Prior to this fix, if you specify a path to a directory that
    ends with ".jar", the application server runtime will treat
    that directory as if it were a JAR file.  This would be
    observed as a ZipException in the log output.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix checks whether the shared library path is a file or
    directory before processing it.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
