APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Empty zip files named like CommercePartialEAR_<timestamp>.zip
    are created in the temp directory of the WebSphere Application
    Server host where the WebSphere Commerce application is run.  If
    you enable SERVER_MANAGEMENT trace you see entries similar to
    the one below but not followed by subsequent WASEARUpdater
    addFile or update log entries.
    
    [11/6/12 16:39:08:812 EST] 0000003a WC_SERVER_MAN 3
    PartialEARBuilder initialize Partial EAR file path:
    /tmp/CommercePartialEAR_121106163908.zip
    
    When jobs such as ScheduledContentManagedFileEARUpdate  prepare
    to do an application update but end up not needing to deploy any
    changes, the act of preparing for the update creates an empty
    EAR update zip file in the temp directory and, when no
    subsequent actions are performed, it does not get cleaned up.
    

Local fix

  • Manually delete the empty zip files
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce runtime v7.0 environments where scheduled
    jobs, such as ScheduledContentManagedFileEARUpdate are
    configured to deploy managed content to the Application Server
    or Web Server.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    Empty zip files are created in the temp directory of the host
    where the WebSphere Commerce application is run.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Additional effort for operations personnel to clean up the host
    system's tmp location
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM has updated the runtime EAR update implementation
    WASEARUpdater so that the zip file does not get created until it
    is determined that at least one file needs to be deployed to the
    application
