  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The problem is caused by the incorrect superclass constructor
    being called by the constructor of the
    DestinationSequenceItemStream when constructed as a child of a
    parent DestinationSequenceItemStream.
    
    On recovery this leads to a new child class being created for
    the bottom child in the hierarchy.  Although this does not cause
    a problem normally when running, when the sequence is deleted
    (either because it  times out or is deleted administratively) th
    will be removed from the administrative console's view).
    
    The next time the app server is restarted it finds the partially
    deleted sequence and will inspect the information on the sequenc

    The problem is caused by the incorrect superclass constructor
    being called by the constructor of the
    DestinationSequenceItemStream when constructed as a child of a
    parent DestinationSequenceItemStream.
    On recovery this leads to a new child class being created for
    the bottom child in the hierarchy.  Although this does not
    cause
    a problem  normally when running, when the sequence is deleted
    (either because it  times out or is deleted administratively)
    the sequence deletion process will fail (though the sequence
    will be removed from the  administrative console's view).  The
    next time the app server is restarted it finds the partially
    deleted sequence and will inspect the information on  the
    sequence which does not contain information that the ws-rm
    component expects to find at which point it throws an error
    during the SIB data restoration process.  This causes SIB to
    make the ME unavailable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The programming error that led to the creation of the
    superfluous data structures in the destination sequence that
    prevented its deletion from occuring successfully was fixed.
    Function was also added to detect and remove the partially
    deleted destination sequences at server initialization and
    allow the messaging engine to continue startup.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.8 and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
