APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the createEJBStubs.bat command on Microsoft Windows
    with the "-cp" parameter to specify a classpth, if the
    classpath is long and the command exceeds 2046 characters,
    you get a "line too long" error.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server users      *
    *                  of the createEJBStubs command               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The -cp option does not process         *
    *                      MANIFEST.MF Class-Path entries          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A common workaround for command-line length limitations in
    classpath arguments to commands on Microsoft Windows operating
    systems is to create an empty archive with a
    META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file that contains a Class-Path with all
    the necessary classpaths.  The createEJBStubs.bat command has
    a -cp option, but the option does not process Class-Path
    entries in META-INF/MANIFEST.MF files, so the workaround for
    command-line length limitations on Microsoft Windows operating
    systems does not work.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The -cp option has been updated to process Class-Path entries
    in META-INF/MANIFEST.MF files.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.7, and the fix pack following
    8.5.0.2. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
