    ****************************************************************
    The API Discovery bundle activator calls an MBean to start two
    system applications (RESTAPIDocs and SwaggerUI). This could
    fail because these applications have not been installed (for
    example, on a custom profile) or some other internal error
    occurred while attempting to start them.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the API Discovery bundle activator logic to ensure
    both of the system applications (RESTAPIDocs and SwaggerUI)
    required for the API Discovery feature, are installed and are
    started properly when initializing the API Discovery feature.
    Otherwise, we display a message informing the user about the
    issue and also instructing users about the action to resolve
    the issue.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
