Error description

  • When installing several ifixes on a Solaris system for BPM
    (such as  JR55701, JR56526, and JR57149) you may encounter
    exceptions in the post-install actions that look like this:
    
    /bpm/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/BPM/config/MarkProfileUpgrades.ant:
    29: java.lang.ClassCastException:

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • The classpath setup for the automated profile upgrade does not
    work with Oracle JDKs, which are used on Solaris.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An interim fix for IBM BPM V8.5.6 CF02 is available that fixes
    the classpath setup for Oracle JDKs. Install this interim fix
    before installing other IBM BPM interim fixes that automatically
    upgrade the profile.
