Error description

  • The use of Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver classes existing
    in "sqljdbc.jar" in Common Event Infrastructure (CEI)
    configuration with Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.6
    leads to the following error:
    Could not invoke an operation on object:
    WebSphere:name=DataSourceCfgHelper,process=nodeagent,platform=dy
    namicproxy,node=<node name>,version=<product
    version>,type=DataSourceCfgHelper,mbeanIdentifier=DataSourceCfgH
    elper,cell=<cell name>,spec=1.0 because of an mbean exception:
    java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Java Runtime
    Environment (JRE) version 1.6 is not supported by this driver.
    Use the sqljdbc4.jar class library, which provides support for
    JDBC 4.0.
    
    In order to support Microsoft SQL Server JDBC 3.0 driver
    (sqljdbc4.jar), the parameter jdbcDriverVersion has been added
    for the command configEventServiceSQLServerDB.
    The parameter can be specified only when Microsoft JDBC driver
    is used (the parameter jdbcProviderType has the value
    "microsoftjdbc", which is the default value). In this case,
    the following values are accepted for the parameter
    jdbcDriverVersion:
    - "1.2", the default value, configures CEI to use the classes
    in sqljdbc.jar
    - "2.0" configures CEI to use the classes in sqljdbc4.jar
    - "3.0" configures CEI to use the classes in sqljdbc4.jar
    For other values of the parameter the command
    configEventServiceSQLServerDB returns an exception.
    If the parameter jdbcDriverVersion is specified and the
    jdbcProviderType is not "microsoftjdbc" the command
    configEventServiceSQLServerDB returns also an exception.

    ****************************************************************
    If Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) application is configured
    with "configEventServiceSQLServerDB" administrative command,
    the application is configured to use Microsoft SQL Server JDBC
    driver version 1.2 (sqljdbc.jar).
    In this configuration, the following error might be received:
    Could not invoke an operation on object:
    WebSphere:name=DataSourceCfgHelper,process=nodeagent,platform=dy
    namicproxy,node=<node name>,version=<product
    version>,type=DataSourceCfgHelper,mbeanIdentifier=DataSourceCfgH
    elper,cell=<cell name>,spec=1.0 because of an mbean exception:
    java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Java Runtime
    Environment (JRE) version 1.6 is not supported by this driver.
    Use the sqljdbc4.jar class library, which provides support for
    JDBC 4.0.
    The text of the error message explains the cause of the
    problem: the driver does not support Software Development Kit
    (SDK) version 1.6.
    

Problem conclusion

  • In order to support Microsoft SQL Server JDBC drivers version
    2.0 and 3.0 (that are packaged in "sqljdbc4.jar"), a new
    parameter ("jdbcDriverVersion") was added to the
    administrative task configEventServiceSQLServerDB.
    
    The parameter can be specified only when Microsoft SQL Server
    JDBC driver is used (the parameter "jdbcProviderType" has the
    value "microsoftjdbc", which is the default value).
    
    The following values are accepted for the parameter
    "jdbcDriverVersion":
    - "1.2", the default value, configures CEI to use the classes
    in "sqljdbc.jar";
    - "2.0" configures CEI to use the classes in "sqljdbc4.jar";
    - "3.0" configures CEI to use the classes in "sqljdbc4.jar".
    
    For other values of the parameter "jdbcDriverVersion" the
    command configEventServiceSQLServerDB returns an exception.
    If the parameter "jdbcDriverVersion" is specified but the
    "jdbcProviderType" is not "microsoftjdbc" the command
    configEventServiceSQLServerDB also returns an exception.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.21.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
