    ****************************************************************
    Normally, OSGi temporary directories are deleted after use
    by the shutdown hooks code running in each OSGi process;
    however, there are circumstances where these shutdown hooks
    are not run. An example where shutdown hooks are not run is
    when a server is terminated abnormally rather than by
    normal server shutdown mechanisms such as the stopServer
    command.
    

Problem conclusion

  • As part of fixpack installs, an OSGi script (osgiCfgInit) is
    run to "clean" the OSGi environment. Now, with this change,
    whenever the osgiCfgInit script is run, any OSGi temporary
    directories under <PROFILE_HOME>/temp/osgi_instance_location
    will be deleted. Users may also run osgiCfgInit manually
    at their discretion if they feel this temp space is growing
    to large. Note: all java processes must be shutdown when
    running the osgiCfgInit script manually. Since this fix is
    not available for V6.1 users, these directories must be
    deleted manually via normal operating system commands
    (all java processes must be stopped).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.19 and 8.0.0.1.  Please refer to the
