  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This issue applies ONLY to those servers that have at least one
    application with embedded RA (resource adapter) deployed.
    
    When there is some recovery work to be done, one of the things
    recovery code checks for is if all applications are started. If
    at least one is not started, then recovery cannot proceed.

    (13007002)
    ThreadId:00001abd
    FunctionName: com.ibm.ws.tx.jta.RecoveryManager
    SourceId: com.ibm.ws.tx.jta.RecoveryManager
    Category: FINEST
    ExtendedMessage: appsAreLoaded; false    <--- shows one or more
                                       applications have not started
    
    The recovery is retried every 1 minute:
    WTRN0135I: Transaction service recovering no transactions.
    (this message is issued at service level 7.0.0.13 and above)
    
    The requirement is for all applications to be started. However,
    on z/OS, there is no way to do the check for startup status of
    specific apps. Therefore, recovery can never complete.
    
    This fix will remove the requirement of having all applications
    to be started in order to complete recovery.  However, if a
    transaction that needs to be recovered is for an application
    with embedded RA which is not started, the recovery will
    still fail.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0 for z/OS               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Recovery will never complete on z/OS    *
    *                      with an application deployed which      *
    *                      contains an embedded JCA resource       *
    *                      adapter.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Recovery could never complete on a z/OS application server with
    an application deployed containing an embedded JCA resource
    adapter because the application server on z/OS has no mechanism
    with which to detect if applications have started.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The requirement for all applications to have started before
    recovery can complete has been removed.
    
    If a transaction to be recovered depends on an application
    being started, recovery will fail.
    
    APAR PM50829 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Fix Packs 7.0.0.23 and 8.0.0.3 of WebSphereApplication
    Server.
