Problem conclusion

  • The failure occurs because the EJB context is not available on
    the thread that is used to pre-load the bean pool. The EJB
    container has been updated to make the EJB context available on
    the pre-load bean pool thread.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    packs 8.5.5.11 and 9.0.0.1 for WebSphere Application Server and
    16.0.0.3 for WebSphere Application Server Liberty.
