APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Runtime code opens the EAR of a stopped application in order
    to obtain module information.  Opening the EAR is a relatively
    expensive operation and in this instance is unnecessary.

    *                      application information of a stopped    *
    *                      application.                            *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The problem occurs when information is requested about an
    application which is stopped. The call to open the EAR file
    causes many files in the application to be examined.  This
    causes a delay and is unnecessary in this instance.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code changes were made such that application information can
    be obtained without opening the application.  When the
    application is deployed, manifest version information is
    stored in application deployment file (deployment.xml).  When
    obtaining manifest version, code now starts by looking in the
    application deployment file.
    
    Full enablement of this fix requires a redeployment of
    applications, as the fix uses new information which is
    generated during application deployment.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.1.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
