Error description

    implementation that does not support specification versions in
    which the DocumentBuilderFactory.setFeature method was added.
    
    java.lang.AbstractMethodError: javax/xml/parsers/Document
    BuilderFactory.setFeature(Ljava/lang/String;Z)V

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: AbsractMethodError occurs invoking      *
    *                      DocumentBuilderFactory.setFeature()     *
    *                      method when using WSDL4J.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The following error can happen if an application has been
    configured to use a non-default JAXP XML processor, if the
    implementation only supports old JAXP specifications in which
    the DocumentbuilderFactory.setFeature method was not present.
    java.lang.AbstractMethodError: javax/xml/parsers/Document
    BuilderFactory.setFeature(Ljava/lang/String;Z)V
    

Problem conclusion

  • Any error thrown by DocumentBuilder.setFeature() method can
    be ignored by WSDL4J by setting JMV System Property
    com.ibm.wsdl.ignoreErrorOnSetFeature to a value of true. The
    default value is false, in which case the existing behaviour
    remains unchanged.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.19 and 9.0.5.6.For more information, see 'Recommended
