Error description

  • When JAXB optimized marshalling path is taken, the following
    exception occurs when getHours() is called:

    ...
    
    It appears that Liberty is still using the class
    java.sql.Date
    which does not have the method getHours().
    

Local fix

  • Use the following JVM custom property so that the JAXB
    optimized marshalling path is not taken:
    
    -Dcom.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.opti.level=0
    

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty who use Web services         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException      *
    *                      occurs when java.sql.Date.getHours()    *
    *                      method is called during processing of a *
    *                      Web service request.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    This problem occurred because the JAXB XML parser code was using
    the incorrect Date java.sql.Date class when invoking the
    getHours() method. The code should be using the correct Date
    class which is java.util.Date.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem was fixed by replacing the incorrect Date class
    java.sql.Date with the correct Date class java.util.Date when
    calling the getHours() method.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 16.0.0.4.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Set the JVM custom property com.ibm.xml.xlxp.jaxb.opti.level=0
    to disable jAXB optimization.
