Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7 and V8.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The wsadmin command,                    *
    *                      createJ2CConnectionFactory, fails       *
    *                      with NullPointerException.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The wsadmin command, createJ2CConnectionFactory, fails with a
    NullPointerException. This also occurs in the administrative
    console because it uses the command to create J2C connection
    factories. The command fails with the following message:
    Unable to create the J2CConnectionFactory factory because the
    createJ2CConnectionFactory command failed: null.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem occurs when the associated resource adapter does
    not have a deployment descriptor. Absence of deployment
    descriptors in resource adapters is now tolerated.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.21 and 8.0.0.2.  Please refer to the
    Recommended Updates page for delivery information:
