  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • An Application which includes multiple static Libraries
    containing more than one identical copy of a schema file, in the
    exact same file path relative the Application or static Library,
    can be developed and added to a BAR file in the Toolkit, with no
    errors, although there will be warnings like:
    
       Global element '<element name>' exists more than once within
    the Application '<name>'. Exists in: '<path1>', '<path2>'.
    
    However on deployment of the BAR file to the ACE runtime the
    Application will fail to start reporting an error of the form:
    
       BIP5024E: The creation and preprocessing of the XML schemas
    has failed.
       BIP4395E: Java exception:
    'org.apache.xerces.xni.XNIException'
       BIP1096E: The source '<BAR>' has been deployed but there were
    one or more failures which may mean the deployed resources will
    be unable to execute
    

Local fix

  • The issue can be avoid by removing the duplicated schema so that
    only one copy exists in the Application and its included static
    Libraries.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of App Connect Enterprise V11.0 who use Applications
    including libraries with duplicate schema

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    An Application which includes multiple static libraries
    containing more than one identical copy of a schema file, in the
    exact same file path relative to the Application or static
    library, can be developed and added to a BAR file in the
    Toolkit, with no errors, although there will be warnings similar
    to:
    
       Global element '<element name>' exists more than once within
    the Application '<name>'. Exists in: '<path1>', '<path2>'.
    
    However on deployment of the BAR file to the ACE runtime the
    Application will fail to start, reporting an error of the form:
    
       BIP5024E: The creation and preprocessing of the XML schemas
    has failed.
       BIP4395E: Java exception:
    'org.apache.xerces.xni.XNIException'
       BIP1096E: The source '<BAR>' has been deployed but there were
    one or more failures which may mean the deployed resources will
    be unable to execute
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ACE runtime processing of deployed XML schema files in
    static libraries included in an Application has been modified to
    avoid duplication caused by identical copies of a schema file,
    in the exact same file path relative to the Application or
    Libraries.
