    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server who customized core group bridges    *
    *                  (coregroupbridge.xml)                       *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: During WASPostUpgrade, a                *
    *                      NoSuchMethodException is encountered    *
    *                      looking for the method                  *
    *                      arePrimaryKeysEqual(Endpoint,           *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When WASPostUpgrade is processing the coregroupbridge.xml
    file, it tries to compare elements of type Endpoint, and cannot
    find the arePrimaryKeysEqual method to do it so that it can
    merge the configurations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added the arePrimaryKeysEqual method for Endpoints.
    
    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. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
