Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NumberFormatException is thrown when    *
    *                      searching LDAP through WIM              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Some directory services contain a "change" attribute that
    keeps track of when objects are changed. This number can be
    large and casued a NumberFormatException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The NumberFormatException will no longer occur because WIM
    evaluates the attribute as a Long instead of Integer.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.16 and 9.0.5.0.  Please refer to the Recommended
