Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server with applications containing         *
    *                  muli-release Java JAR files.                *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    There is a bug in the annotation processing for multi-release
    JARs.  If the last java class scanned happens to be compiled
    at a level higher than Java 8, then an infinite loop will
    occur.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been corrected to properly handle the case where
    the last java class processed is higher than Java 8.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.15 and 9.0.0.10.  Please refer to the
