    deploying a napplication, can generate excess annotation
    processing warnings in cases where there is no actual problem.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 (all versions up to but not     *
    *                  including 7.0.0.19).                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Annotations processing incorrectly      *
    *                      displays a "not defined" warning from   *
    *                      DependencyUtil.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the IBM WebSphere Application Server Feature
    Pack for Communications Enabled Applications is not
    installed, annotations processing will incorrectly display a
    "not defined" warning from class DependencyUtil.
    
    For example, the following warning is displayed:
    
    [3/24/11 16:10:56:011 IST] 00000024 annotations W DependencyUtil
    processNode merge action group.siplet.annotations is not
    defined and is declared as a dependency of another merge
    action; ignoring
    
    Annotations processing can occur during application deployment
    operations and during application startup.
    
    The warning should not be displayed, as the merge action is not
    expected to be present when the IBM WebSphere
    Application Server Feature Pack for Communications Enabled
    Applications is not installed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Annotation processing was updated to only display the "not
    defined" message when annotation processing trace is enabled.
    Annotation processing trace is enabled using the trace
    specification "com.ibm.config.annotations=FINER".
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.19.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
