Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users installing V7.0 fix packs on IBM  *
    *                  i machines that have a                      *
    *                  SystemsDefault.properties file that         *
    *                  specifies java.version=1.4                  *
    *                  This defect only applies to IBM i           *
    *                  WebSphere Application Server customers.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Fix pack config actions that invoke a   *
    *                      JVM to run java programs assume the     *
    *                      default SDK setting for the system.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Fix pack config actions that invoke a JVM to run a java program
    do not specify the java version to use and therefor use the
    system default.  When the SystemDefault.properties set
    java.version=1.4, the java classes being called cannot run
    because they were compiled at java.version=1.6.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The driving script that starts the JVM and calls the java
    classes has been changed to specify the java path to use on
    the java class invocation and therefor avoiding using the
    system default.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.19.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
    page for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Before installing the fix pack, edit the
    SystemDefault.properties file and if java.version=1.4 is one
    of the settings, change it to java.version=1.6
    After the fi xpack is installed you can change the value back
    to java.version=1.4
