Error description

  • Problem Description:
    --------------------
    Currently application management allows a version 2.5 web module
    to be targetted to a WebSphere Application Server V6.1 node in a
    mixed cell environment when the V6.1 node has the Feature Pack
    for Web Services or applications with 2.5 XML format installed.
    However, there's no support for web module 2.5 on WebSphere
    Application Server V6.1. When a module is binding in xml format
    is deployed to a V6.1 node, the bindings cannot be processed.
    
    In this APAR, application management needs to provide a clear
    message exception during the application install process to
    prevent users from installing the application if it's
    targetted to a V6.1 node or lower.
    
    Environment:
    -----------
    - allow 2.5 web module in WebSphere Application Server v7 or
    higher
    - should not allow 2.5 web module in WebSphere Application
    Server v6.1 or lower
    

Local fix

  • Change the EAR from a Web 2.5 to Web 2.4 or less.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A Java Servlet 2.5 Web module can be    *
    *                      targeted to a V6.1 node if the          *
    *                      Feature Pack for Web Services is        *
    *                      installed on the node.                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A Java Servlet 2.5 Web module can be targeted to a WebSphere
    Application Server V6.1 node if the Feature Pack for Web
    Services is installed on the node even though that node
    configuration cannot support Servlet 2.5 Web modules. Target
    validation should permit target nodes of only WebSphere
    Application Server versions 7.0 and above.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Target validation logic has been corrected. If there is any
    need to revert back to previous target validation behavior,
    set the property,
    com.ibm.websphere.management.application.applyPM05452, as a
    JVM custom property with a value of true. Configure the
    property setting in the deployment manager process.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.25 and 8.0.0.4.  Please refer to the
