Pinned topic WebServices Service Pack CN01

‏2011-03-07T21:57:48Z |
Hi, has anyone successfully connected the web services service pack to a
TXSeries CICS region? I am experiencing a problem and can't seem to locate
the root cause.

Symptoms: Am receiving the following java error in the log file

2011/03/07 16:09:31.056 SEVERE Webcontainer : com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.webapp.WebApp : [Servlet Error]-[
}([WSGateway, java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException]) Thread[HttpServer : 1,5,main] ::class.method=com.ibm.ejs.ras.Tr.error() ::thread=HttpServer : 1 ::loggername=com.ibm.ejs.ras 2011/03/07 16:09:31.056 SEVERE [Servlet Error]-[

I have tested the LWI environment and ensured that I successfully get the wsdl
returned to me so I know that this piece is working. I have a working IPIC
type listener running in my CICS region - there are no errors associated with
the LD entry in the CICS logs.

I have reviewed the file 'lwiservicestdout.log' in c:\opt\cics\wui\logs and it
is completely empty (there would be text there if a configuration error had occurred)

I am using SOAPUI to send a web service request into my program and I can tell that
there is no connection happening to the CICS region. I am able to test the service
program thru a simple 3270 interface program which calls the service program passing
it a commarea. The fact that I get the above error suggests that I am making it into
the LWI environment.

What I receive out of SOAP UI html log is this as a response (without all of the
date/time stuff):

"HTTP/1.1 500 OK[\r][\n]" 
"HTTP/1.1 500 OK[\r][\n]" 
"Server: Lotus Expeditor Web Container/6.1[\r][\n]" 
"Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8[\r][\n]" 
"$WSEP: [\r][\n]" 
"Content-Language: en-US[\r][\n]" 
"Content-Length: 13[\r][\n]" 
"Connection: close[\r][\n]" 
"Error 500: [\r][\n]"

Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this?

Thank you,

    Try to see the SOAP request coming from the SOAPUI tool to the LWI server is proper, which can be seen by enabling LWI log/trace.
    You can do following steps to configure LWI trace.

    Open the 'logging.properties' file exists in directory "/TXSeries-install-dir/conf/overrides". (If this file does not exist, copy
    the logging.properties file exists in "/TXSeries-install-dir/conf" to "/TXSeries-install-dir/conf/overrides" directory).

    Changes the following properties as follows.


    Restart LWI, and send the SOAP request and verify the SOAP request message is coming properly in the LWI logs.

    Hi, I have successfully changed the logging levels to Fine.
    I see the request arriving in the logs.

    2011/03/08 13:04:27.302 FINE TXWS:SOAP Request Message: <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:dms="http://www.DMSOPING.DMSCPING.Request.com"> <soapenv:Header/> <soapenv:Body> <dms:DMSOPINGOperation> <dms:tx_soap_ping> <dms:ping_applid>AAAAAAAA</dms:ping_applid> <dms:ping_sysid>AAAA</dms:ping_sysid> <dms:ping_date>AAAAAAAAAA</dms:ping_date> <dms:ping_time>AAAAAAAA</dms:ping_time> </dms:tx_soap_ping> </dms:DMSOPINGOperation> </soapenv:Body></soapenv:Envelope> ::class.method=com.ibm.txseries.ws.controller.helper.PostRequestHelper.handlePost() ::thread=HttpServer : 2 ::loggername=com.ibm.txseries.ws.controller.helper

    followed by the following two error messages:

    2011/03/08 13:04:27.302 SEVERE Webcontainer : com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.ServletWrapper : Uncaught service() exception thrown by servlet {0}: {1}(http://WSGateway, java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException) ThreadHttpServer : 2,5,main ::class.method=com.ibm.ejs.ras.Tr.error() ::thread=HttpServer : 2 ::loggername=com.ibm.ejs.ras
    2011/03/08 13:04:27.302 SEVERE Uncaught service() exception thrown by servlet {0}: {1}(http://WSGateway, java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException) ::class.method=com.ibm.ejs.ras.Tr.logPossibleThrowables() ::thread=HttpServer : 2 ::loggername=com.ibm.ejs.ras

    Which are then followed by the previously presented java stack trace. I have attached the entire trace-log-0.html file

    I can't see what I have done wrong!

    Thank you for reviewing.
