Error description

  • JAX-WS WS-Security may get a CWWSS5007E error when it tries to
    load application classes such as token generators and
    consumers:
    
    CWWSS5007E: Class "com.acme.wssec.myGenerator" not found.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0 and   *
    *                  V8.0 users of WS-Security enabled JAX-WS    *
    *                  applications                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: CWWSS5007E error may occur when         *
    *                      JAX-WS WS-Security loads application    *

    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack that includes this       *
    *                  APAR.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    Classes belonging to a web services application that are
    configured in the WS-Security JAX-WS policy bindings
    may not load properly.  When this happens, a message similar
    to the following appears in the trace, ffdc and SystemOut.log:
    CWWSS5007E: Class "com.acme.wssec.myGenerator" not found.
    The classes include, but are not limited to custom token
    generators and consumers and custom JAAS login modules.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WS-Security runtime is using the class loader that
    originaly loaded the com.ibm.xml.soapsec.util.ConfigUtil class
    instead of the context class loader to load all classes.  This
    can cause the runtime to not be able to locate some classes
    that belong to an application program.
    
    The WS-Security runtime is updated to attempt to load classes
    with the context class loader.
    
    To maintain the original behavior, the WS-Security runtime
    will first attempt to load classes with the class loader that
    loaded the ConfigUtil class.  If the first class loader cannot
    load the class, the runtime will then attempt to use the
    context class loader.
    
    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
