    ****************************************************************
    Prior to this APAR, the Bundle-Version attribute for the
    objectgrid.jar and ogclient.jar bundles were set to the
    version number of the product; for example: "7.1.1", "8.5.0",
    or "8.6.0".  This makes it difficult to recognize, at first
    glance, whether a fix pack or interim fix has been applied.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Bundle-Version attribute in the
    objectgrid.jar or ogclient.jar files contain the same
    product release version number. However, the build
    date and timestamp are appended to more easily determine that a
    fix pack or interim fix has been applied.
    
    For bundles intended for use in the WebSphere
    Application Server Liberty profile, the Bundle-Version
    attributes have been reset in WebSphere eXtreme Scale V8.5 and
    V8.6. In V8.5, all Bundle-Version attributes are set to
    1.0. In V8.6, all Bundle-Version attributes are set to 1.1.
    These attributes will also contain the build date and timestamp.
