Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using their own logger with          *
    *                  listener ports.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: IllegalArgumentException when using     *
    *                      custom logger.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Customers using their own logger rather than the logger
    supplied with the application server will encounter the
    IllegalArgumentException above if they attempt to make use of
    listener ports. This is because the code made an assumption
    that the application server default logger would always be
    used.
