    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Invalid class path entry seen with      *
    *                      verbose logging on Java Virtual Machine *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In 7.0.0.23, the jar file ibmxmlcrypto.jar was moved within the
    java folder to a new location. The old symbolic link pointing
    from the config root to the old location of the jar file was not
    removed. This causes a warning to show up when verbose logging
    is enabled as the file cannot be loaded into the class path
    since it does not exist.
    The jar file is loaded from the new location and the message
    seen can safely be ignored without issues arising.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The dangling symbolic link was removed and the jar file is
    loaded from the new location.
    
    APAR PM78812 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    WebSphere Application Server Fix Pack 7.0.0.29.
