Error description

  • An attempt is made to deploy the MQ Resource Adapter
    Installation-Verification-Test (IVT) sample application named:
    
      /opt/mqm/java/lib/jca/wmq.jmsra.ivt.ear
    
    from the IBM MQ v9.0.0.0 version, to the WebSphere Application
    Server (WAS) v9.0.0.0.
    
    This deployment fails, and the application server's
    SystemOut.log file reports the error message:
    
    org.eclipse.emf.common.util.WrappedException:
    org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid
    content was found starting with element 'lookup-name'.
    

Local fix

  • Look to remove the resource-ref element from the following file
    within the wmq.jmsra.ivt.ear package:
    
      wmq.jmsra.ivt.ear/WMQ_IVT_MDB.jar/META-INF/ejb-jar.xml
    
    The resource-ref element to remove is the following section:
    
    &#09;&#09;    <resource-ref>
                    <res-ref-name>jms/cf1</res-ref-name>
    
    <res-type>javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory</res-type>
                    <res-auth>Container</res-auth>
                    <lookup-name>JMS2CF</lookup-name>
                </resource-ref>
    
    Then repackage and deploy the .ear file into the WebSphere
    Application Server.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the Installation, Verification and
    Test (IVT) sample application for the IBM MQ Resource Adapter,
    as supplied in the Enterprise Archive (EAR) file at the
    location:
    
      ${MQ_INSTALLATION_ROOT}/java/lib/jca/wmq.jmsra.ivt.ear
    
    when attempting to use the application within WebSphere
    Application Server environment.
    
    This issue is not known to affect other application servers (eg.
    JBoss, WebSphere Liberty Profile).
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The basic functionality of the IBM MQ Resource Adapter as used
    within the WebSphere Application Server environment can be
    tested using the sample IVT application which is supplied with
    the IBM MQ installation at the location:
    
      ${MQ_INSTALLATION_ROOT}/java/lib/jca/wmq.jmsra.ivt.ear
    
    However when attempting to deploy this into the WebSphere
    Application Server environment, an error would be encountered
    during the deployment phase.
    
    The WebSphere Application Server "SystemOut.log" file would
    report the following exception:
    
    Creating the project.
    An unexpected exception was thrown. Halting execution.
    Shutting down workbench.
    Error executing deployment:
    org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.exception.Deploy
    mentDescriptorLoadException. Error is META-INF/ejb-jar.xml.
    org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.exception.Deploy
    mentDescriptorLoadException: META-INF/ejb-jar.xml
    Stack trace of nested exception:
    org.eclipse.emf.common.util.WrappedException:
    org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid
    content was found starting with element 'lookup-name'. One of
    '{"http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee":res-sharing-scope}' is
    expected.

    pl.java:1297)
    
    As the deployment of the IVT application had failed, it could
    not then be utilised.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IVT Enterprise Archive (.ear) file has been updated to allow
    it to be deployed into the WebSphere Application Server
    environment.
