Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of the IBM WebSphere Application  *
    *                  Server JCA/J2C component.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Under rare circumstances                *
    *                      ComponentMetaData can fall out of       *
    *                      sync, ultimately leading to a           *
    *                      NullPointerException in code that       *
    *                      tries to check the ComponentMetaData.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In the ConnectionFactoryBuilderImpl.getCMConfigData when the
    ComponentMetaData (CMD) is null, an IllegalStateException is
    thrown.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR changes the behavior of getCMConfigData to
    tolerate null CMD instead of throwing an IllegalStateException.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
