APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When visualization engine is started with the visualization
    trace running, a DocumentNotFound exception is displayed in the
    trace. This exception is not an actual error and should not be
    displayed as such.
    

Local fix

  • No work around needed as exception does not indicate a problem.
    Code fix handles error properly.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An unhandled and harmless exception     *
    *                      appears in the trace when the           *
    *                      visualization trace is enabled.         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Visualization Data Service must be enabled before charting
    services can be used. When it is not enabled, and the trace
    for visualization engine is enabled a DocumentNotFound
    exception is thrown because the visdata.xml file does not
    exist. This file should only exist if Visualization Data
    Service is enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The exception is now properly handled and simply reports in
    the trace that the service is not enabled and removes the
    DocumentNotFound exception stack trace that was previously
    being displayed.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.7.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
