Error description

  • In the InjectionUtils handleParameter and
    createFromParameterHandler WAS may instaniate a new Java
    Object
    based on a object type passed into the JAX-RS code.
    Depending
    on the Object type and the value being passed for the object
    the
    call to the constructor for the object may produce invalid
    results such as IllegalArgumentException.
    
    A example would be a Date object with a null value.  A Date
    object can be set to a null value however, when the Date
    constructor is called the Date must have a valid value as
    Java
    parses the Date.
    
    One would see the following error for the Date case:
    
    Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

    ionUtils.java:449)
    
    In the org.apache.cxf.jaxrs=all trace we would see:
    
    org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.utils.InjectionUtils
    createFromParameterHandler
    RETURN null
    
    
    org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.utils.InjectionUtils

    Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
    at java.util.Date.parse(Date.java:628)
    at java.util.Date.(Date.java:285)
    

Local fix

  • When using JAX-RS ensure that objects that will be instaniated
    in the InjectionUtils code have valid values for the constructor
    call.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty Profile - Web Services (JAX- *
    *                  RS)                                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An illegal argument exception might     *
    *                      occur due to an attempt to construct an *
    *                      Date Object with invalid arguments.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A null Date argument would be passed to a Date construtor,
    resulting in an IllegalArgumentException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code is updated to return a null under these conditions, since
    the object cannot be constructed.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 16.0.0.2  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
