Error description

  • Applications that use WEBDav methods will not deploy in
    WebSphere Application Server V6.0.
    
    The symptom of this problem is an exception seen during
    application deployment:
    
    ---
    
    [12/13/04 8:02:40:591 PST] 00000028 SystemErr R

    ---
    
    The key features of the exception are the two exception types,
    "DeploymentDescriptorLoad" and
    "FeatureValueConversionException", along with exception text
    that notes a failure to convert a WEBDav-specific HTTP method
    type to Enumeration.  (The example above shows the
    WEBDav-specific HTTP method type "PROPPATCH".)
    
    No workaround is available for this problem.
    
    This APAR / fix provides support for all WEBDav method types
    *except* "MKWORKSPACE", "UPDATE", "LABEL", "MKACTIVITY", "BIND",
    "UNBIND", and "REBIND".
    
    The APAR / fix was integrated into WAS 6.0.0.2.
    
    An iFix is available for this problem, see the iFix package
    "PQ98556.zip".  That iFix is installable on WAS 6.0.0.1.
    
    A second APAR, PK30110, addresses the subset of WEBDav method
    types which were not addressed by PQ98556.  See that APAR for
    additional information.

    5.02. PROPPATCH and PROPFIND are two such methods.
