Error description

  • In launchWsadminListener.sh for Linux operating systems
    "$javaoption" is before the default java options and the
    defaults are picked over custom java options by the jvm. In
    launchWsadminListener.bat, it only accepts the three default
    arguments and not any additional arguments (that is, jvm
    related arguments)

    ****************************************************************
    On Linux, launchWsadminListener.sh uses default java options
    even if you pass in custom java options. The custom
    %javaoption is above the default java options when calling
    the jvm and the jvm picks up the latter arguments.
    On Microsoft Windows, launchwsadminListener.bat accepts only
    the required arguments and not any other arguments such as
    java options. The error states:
    "Invalid Arguments. The expected arguments are: IPCfilename
    logname
    Could not initialize WsProfileAdminListener
    The WsProfileAdminListener class is exiting, due to an
    Exception.
    An Exception was encountered in the WsProfileAdminListener
    classnull
    java.lang.NullPointerException".
    The class that is called only uses the required arguments and
    validates that only the required arguments are passed into it.
    Currently all arguments are passed to it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • On Linux,  the %javaOption is moved below the default java
    options so the jvm will pick it up over the defaults.
    
    On Microsoft Windows, only the required arguments are passed
    to the class.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.0.0.6 and the fix pack following 8.5.0.2.  Please
