Error description

  • Once we are in BBOASREG, we try to load ECESPRHT,
    which is an IMS resource route table (DFSRRT). This is the
    specific pointer which is null, and results in an eventual
    branch to an invalid address. Because the dependant region is
    not finished initialization. This causes the abend 0C4.
     This is a WOLA client routine that performs a WOLA
    registration.  In this case it is running in an IMS dependent
    region, during an IMS pre-initialization exit.
    The call to BBOA1REG is successful if it driven after
    dependent region has finished initialization.
    
    The IMS documentation for pre-initialization exits declares
    that DL/I calls are not available in these routines.  WOLA is
    attempting to make a DL/I call inside of BBOA1REG, and this is
    the code that is in error.
    
    The WOLA exit should be modified to check for the presence of
    ECESPRHT, and if it is not set, the WOLA registration routine
    can be called without using the IMS DL/I call.  For all other
    WOLA services, an error return and reason code should be
    returned to the caller, stating that this service is not
    supported during pre-initialization.  This will avoid the
    ABENDS0C4 that is being reported here.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0, V8.0, and V8.5                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An ABENDS0C4 occurs when calling WOLA   *
    *                      service BBOA1REG during IMS pre-init    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    During an IMS pre-initialization exit, an ABENDS0C4 occurs
    when WebSphere Optimized Local Adapters service BBOA1REG is
    invoked.  The IMS environment is not fully initialized at this
    time and a required control block had not been created yet.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to allow BBOA1REG to be called during an IMS
    pre-initialization exit.
    
    APAR PM87662 requires changes to documentation.
    
    NOTE: Periodically, we refresh the documentation on our Web
    site, so the changes might have been made before you read this

    The following update to the WebSphere Application Server
    Version 7.0 Information Center will be made available in
    December 2013.
    
    Tables 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and 26, in the
    topic "Optimized local adapters for z/OS APIs" will be updated
    to include the he following reason code information for Return
    Code 8:
    
    Reason Code
    96
    
    Description
    This API cannot be driven during Information Management System
    (IMS) initialization or during an IMS pre-initialization exit.
    
    Action
    Call this API after IMS initialization is complete.
    
    APAR PM87662 is currently targeted for inclusion in WebSphere
