  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Cobol Container support only works in a 31 bit server.
    31 bit servers are not supported in version 9 so there is no
    COBOL container support in WebSphere Application Server for
    z/OS Version 9.0.
    
    When you try to submit a job to drive COBOL in a 64 bit server
    a java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: LECENV (Not found in
    java.library.path) will occur.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V9.0 for z/OS                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: COBOL container support in WebSphere    *
    *                      Application Server for z/OS version     *
    *                      9.0 does not work.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In releases before version 9 the Cobol Container support only
    worked in a 31 bit server. 31 bit servers are not supported in
    version 9 so there is no COBOL container support in WebSphere
    Application Server for z/OS Version 9.0.
    When a job is submitted to drive COBOL in a 64 bit server
    a java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: LECENV (Not found in
    java.library.path) occurs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Updated the code so the cobol container support will  run in a
    64 server.
    
    APAR PI69833 is currently targeted for inclusion in Fix Pack
    9.0.0.2 of WebSphere Application Server for z/OS.
