SOAP adapter returns Error Code -99999 'Adapter not found' in WMB

Technote (troubleshooting)


When using the SOAP adapter within a WebSphere Transformation Extender (WTX) map inside WebSphere Message Broker (WMB) it may fail with error code -99999 - Adapter not found


All soap based operations fail, and if the LASTERRORMSG() and LASTERRORCODE() functions are used, they return 'Adapter not found' and -99999 respectively.


This error is caused by a failure to load the required library, because the m4soap.jar has not been copied to the shared classes folder of the WMB installation.


WTX maps called from WMB.

Diagnosing the problem

A review of the JNI Layer trace will show a failure to correctly load the required Java library.

Resolving the problem

It is essential to copy the m4soap.jar Java library to the shared-classes sub-directory for the SOAP adapter to work under WMB. The shared-classes sub-directory can be found in the work directory. The work directory can be found with this command:

mqsireportbroker MB8BKR1 | grep Work\ path


$ mqsireportbroker MB8BKR1 | grep Work\ path
Work path = '/var/mqsi'

So in this case the m4soap.jar file needs to be copied from the WTX libs sub-directory to /var/mqsi/shared-classes.
