Random API initialization errors while trying to start a TranslatorServer.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

This Technote explains why on a random API initialization errors occur on TranslatorServer startup.

Symptom

The following error message is thrown intermittently on Translator Server startup:

[2/27/12 20:19:31:320 EST] 00000018 ContextLoader E org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader initWebApplicationContext Context initialization failed

org.springframework.beans.factory.access.BootstrapException: Unable to initialize group definition. Group resource name [classpath*:beanRefContext.xml], factory key [bpmservices.context]; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'bpmservices.context' defined in URL [file:/wasqa/WebSphere/AppServer/lib/AccessSETUPExtLib/beanRefContext.xml]: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Could not instantiate bean class [org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'formsService' defined in class path resource [bpm/BizServicesApplicationContext.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: Initialization error: Unable to initialize the API at /opt/IBM/LFServer_400_LinuxX64/WebformServer/Translator/API/80.

Cause

In this particular scenario, a custom webapp (.ear file) was deployed to the TranslatorServer. This is not a supported deployment configuration of the webapp.

Environment

Linux RHEL 5.0 64-bit

Resolving the problem

To resolve this issue you must remove all custom deployed applications on the TranslatorServer and deploy them to a supported server like server1.

The TranslatorServer is not intended to run any other webapp other than its own installed TranslatorApp.ear.
