    not contain spaces.
    

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Install Factory  *
    *                  V7.0                                        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Silent install of IIP failed when       *
    *                      customer uses single quotation marks    *
    *                      on a value without spaces in the IIP    *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Install factory will validate all option values from the build
    definition file and command console with classes
    WASContributionAdapter and FEPContributionAdapter. When a
    value with single quotation marks does not contain spaces in
    it, this value will be ignored with an invalid value by code
    error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the input validation method in WASContributionAdapter
    and FEPContributionAdapter to accept the input values which
    use single quotation marks but do not contain space.
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Install Factory 7.0.0.17. Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
