Error description

  • After migration from WPS 6.2 to BPM 8.5.5 Advanced, web service
    application cannot be run successfully.
    Client tried to hit the application url in the browser and got
    the  error.
    Error: 404 javax.servlet.UnavailableException: SRVE0201E:
    Servlet [sca.webservice.provider.XXXXXXXXXXXXX]: not
    a servlet class
    Client tried to login to WAS admin console and found that the
    Service providers/ Listeners are not in the started state.
    When attempted to start the listener, we get the message "The
    specified application module does not contain any web service"
    Also client is unable to view the wsdl document, getting error
    "WSWS4004E: The wsdl-file for module
    XXX_XXXX_XX_0_0Web.war was not found in the
    module."
    

Local fix

  • 1. Uninstall the "bad" application from target environment.
    2. Update the ear file extracted from source environment as
    below:
       - Locate two META-INF/MANIFEST.MF files; one is under ear
    folder,  another is under war package.
       - Add the property UseWSFEP61ScanPolicy to true in the
       META-INF/MANIFEST.MF of a WAR file or EJB module to true.
       - For example:
            Manifest-Version: 1.0
            UseWSFEP61ScanPolicy: true
    3. Manually install the application(s) to target environment.
    

Problem summary

  • This issue occurs because the default behavior for IBM WebSphere
    Application Server V7.0 and later releases is to not scan
    pre-Java EE 5 modules for annotations while installing an
    application or starting the server. For more information, see
    "JAX-WS annotations"
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSAW57_8.5.5/com.ibm
    .websphere.nd.doc/ae/rwbs_jaxwsannotations.html?lang=en)
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that sets
    UseWSFEP61ScanPolicy property to "true" in the
    META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file of a WAR file or EJB module of an EAR
    file.
