    This error can occur when processing the interceptor
    annotation "@AroundInvoke". That processing tries to match the
    annotation to a corresponding "@Interceptors" annotation. In
    this case, the method that the "@Interceptors" annotation
    applied to was not identified as a business method, so the
    match process failed. The logic to determine "business"
    methods is incorrect and returns a false determination when
    the method being evaluated implements a business method from an
    interface.
    In the case where there is no "@Interceptors" annotation
    referring to the interceptor class, the message is validly
    displayed but should only be an Information message as this is
    not an error condition.
    Other errors exposed by this problem are missing or incomplete
    <interceptor> elements in the deployment descriptor after
    annotations have been processed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The logic to determine a "business" method has been changed to
    correctly identify an implementing method as a business
    interface and the resulting message has been changed to
    Informational. The process to merge interceptor annotations was
    updated to correctly merge interceptor information in the
    deployment descriptor
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.21.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
