Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server v7.0 with J2EE 5 web modules that    *
    *                  contain annotations                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Information from a field level          *
    *                      annotation is not added to the merged   *
    *                      deployment descriptor.                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Intermittently, during application deploy or startup, a field
    level annotation is not merged into the deployment descriptor
    of a web module (web_merged.xml). During annotation merge
    processing, the class containing the annotated field is
    determined to be invalid, for the purpose of annotations in a
    web module, so the annotation is not processed. This occurs
    when child classes of the annotated class are not linked to
    the annotated class.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The annotation scan process has been updated to correctly link
    all of the child classes of an annotated class.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.25.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
