Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Full Profile or Liberty Profile      *
    *                  using web services caching.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The "required" attribute of a web       *
    *                      services cache policy component is      *
    *                      dynamically changed to "true".          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The default behavior of the dynacache web services caching
    engine always sets the cache policy component's required
    attribute to true.  If the requireD attribute is false in the
    cache policy (cachespec.xml) it will be dynamically changed to
    true and potentially cause a cache id not to be generated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The following custom property is being introduced and must be
    set false to indicate not to set the required attribute to
    true:
    
    com.ibm.ws.cache.CacheConfig.webservicesSetRequiredTrue
    
    This can be set as a JVM custom property to affect all cache
    instances or can be set as a custom property for a specific
    cache instance.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9 and 8.5.5.2.  Please refer to the
