Error description

  • The admin console field validation for URL property in a
    datasource configuration is too strict that new URL syntax are
    not allowed.
    For instance, the customer wants to use Oracle
    Wallet, and Oracle doc says user should modify the URL string
    like 'jdbc:oracle:thin:/@mydburl:1234/mydb'. But when we tried
    to change URL in that format, the admin console validation
    doesn't allow it to be saved, saying it's invalid format.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server creating new Oracle datasources.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The console validation doesn't allow    *
    *                      URLs for newer oracle datasources.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The console only allows 3 types of URLS for oracle datasources.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The console was modified to allow more URLs so that when
    Oracle adds new ones, the code won't need to be changed again.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.20, 9.0.5.8.
