Error description

  • Using the WebSphere Application Server administrative console
    to navigate to: Enterprise Applications -> <Application_name> ->

    created and is never deleted.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of the default messaging provider     *
    *                  for IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0,   *
    *                  8.0 and 8.5                                 *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WebSphere Application Server            *
    *                      anonymous directories are created       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Using the WebSphere Application Server administrative console
    to navigate to: Enterprise Applications -> <Application_name> -
    >
    [Enterprise Java Bean Properties] ->
    "Default messaging provider references" causes
    "anonymousxxxxxxx" directories to be created under the wstemp
    workspace directory under the profile root.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code is fixed to set the correct config session during the
    navigation of the "Default messaging provider references"
    page. This avoids creating anonymous sessions which would have
    caused the anonymousxxxx directories to be created under the
    wstemp workspace directory under the profile root.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.7 and the fix pack following 8.5.0.2.
