Error description

  • When a customer upgrade from any 5.2.* version to 5.2.5 and have
    made entries into their customer_overrides.properties file
    related to jgroups_cluster, then jgroups does not function as
    required. The version of jgroups was upgraded, and with it came
    certain property changes. A new version of 5.2.5 has all of the
    needed property changes, but a customer who is upgrading, if
    they override these properties, then they have to do this step
    manually.
    
    The fix for this is to handle these differences and required
    changes when SI reads in the properties from the file system.
    The customer should also edit their own customer_overrides, but
    it will not bring down production if they do not. We will print
    messages to the logs to show the customer what we have changed
    in their property files for them so they can edit it themselves
    at some later point.
    

Local fix

  • An upgrading customer to Sterling B2B Integrator 5.2.5 the
    customer would manually need to update their
    customer_overrides.properties file
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    All
    
    Problem Description:
    A newer version of jGroups causes errors when customers have
    older properties still set in their customer_overrides file.
    Specifically this affects property_string,
    distributed_property_string and lock.protocolStack in
    jgroups_cluster.properties.
    
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    When SI reads the affected properties, it determines if the user
    is using the old notation, and if so, will correct these strings
    before passing them on to jGroups. There also exists a new
    property in jgroups_cluster.properties to turn this feature off.
