    ****************************************************************
    The problem occurs when you update an application using the
    WebSphere Application Server administrative console or wsadmin
    tool by adding a module file to an application. At a point near
    deployment completion the code was saving the application
    archive and then reopening it.  On the reopen, an absolute
    file path was used when a relative path was expected.  The
    problem has no functional impact, however deployment and
    startup time might be increased.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem was resolved by changing WebSphere Application
    Server code to avoid doing an unnecessary save and reopen of
    the archive.
    There is no workaround for this problem.  The fix for this
    APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix packs 7.0.0.23
    and 8.0.0.3  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
