Error description

  • When an optional Java offering update is performed with a Java
    interim fix already installed, using IBM Installation Manager,
    the following warning is shown:
    
    "WARNING: One or more fixes will be uninstalled when IBM
    WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition (Optional) is updated to
    x.x.x.x. The update does not address issues that were resolved
    previously by the maintenance packages. The problems might
    return if fixes for the following issues are not reapplied or
    have new fixes applied to prevent the problems from returning."
    
    This warning is invalid for optional Java offerings, because the
    WebSphere Application Server Java Offering updates are always a
    complete replacement, and all the fixes from the previous
    Service Releases will be included in the future Service Release
    updates.

    ****************************************************************
    When installing an optional SDK fix pack update to WebSphere
    Application Server using IBM Installation Manager, and an
    optional SDK fix was installed on the previous level, the
    following warning message will be shown:
    "WARNING: One or more fixes will be uninstalled when IBM
    WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition (Optional) is updated to
    x.x.x.x. The update does not address issues that were resolved
    previously by the maintenance packages. The problems might
    return if fixes for the following issues are not reapplied or
    have new fixes applied to prevent the problems from returning."
    This warning is invalid for optional IBM WebSphere Application
    Server SDK updates, because the updates are always a complete
    replacement, and all the fixes from the previous service
    releases will be included in the future service release
    updates.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To resolve this issue, the APAR regression warning was turned
    off in IBM Installation Manager for all the optional IBM
    WebSphere Application Server SDKs.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.11.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
