APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • During a Webservices invoked EJB, exceptions can be encountered
    and not handled properly because the EJB postInvoke method is
    not being run during NotifyException.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using JAX-WS webservices.            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In cases where an exception occurs in   *
    *                      an EJB that was invoked as part of a    *
    *                      web service, appropriate post cleanup   *
    *                      is not done.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply the fix pack that contains the fix.   *
    ****************************************************************
    When an error occurs in an web services invoked EJB, it is
    essential to clean up the state and transaction.
    We currently call the cleanup method before we send a response
    back to the client but not during exception processing. This
    behavior could cause a transaction to remain active on a
    thread and prevent a transaction associated with the current XA
    flow from resuming.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Postinvoke is now called when an exception occurs so cleanup
    is performed.
    
    The following JVM property needs to be set -
    com.ibm.websphere.websvcs.EJBPostInvokeCallOnException=true to
    turn on this behavior.
    
    For more details on how to set the JVM property,
    refer to the article "Java virtual machine custom properties"
    in the Information Center for your WebSphere Application
    Server version and operating system.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.25, 8.0.0.4, and 8.5.0.1  Please refer to the
