Error description

  • Problem Description:
    -------------------
    When migrating applications from WebSphere Application Server
    Version 6.1 or prior, if a web module has a version 2.5 or
    later, errors can result during WASPostUpdate application
    install.
    
    Environment:
    ------------
    WebSphere Application Server v7, v8
    OS: AIX, z/OS
    
    The migration tool will be changed to set the version of web
    modules back to 2.4 if they are at a higher level.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WebSphere Application Server v6.1       *
    *                      allows Web 2.5 modules to be            *
    *                      deployed.  These cause errors when      *
    *                      migrating to v7.0 or later.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Although the Web Modules do not exploit any 2.5 constructs or
    behaviors, they are marked as v2.5 WebModules - when in
    reality they are only 2.4 Web Modules.  A problem occurs when
    the application is deployed during a migration.  The deploy
    tool sees the Web Module 2.5 setting and creates new xml
    bindings and extensions.  However, the application already has
    the correct xmi bindings and extensions.  The v7, v8 or v85
    deploytool gets confused when both binding types are present
    and fails the app install.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration tooling has agreed to plug this hole in v6.1 by
    resetting the Web Module 2.5 marker back to 2.4.  This allows
    the application to be installed correctly on the new verison.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.25, 8.0.0.4 and 8.5.0.1.  Please refer to the
