Error description

  • The shareable and authenticationType attributes on an
    @Resource annotation might not be preserved during
    application deployment from wsadmin.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server deploying applications using         *
    *                  wsadmin command.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The shareable and authenticationType    *
    *                      values on an @Resource annotation       *
    *                      are lost when the class specified on    *
    *                      the type attribute is not found.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    An application might include an @Resource annotation such as
    the following:
    @Resource(name="java:global/env/jdbc/ds1ref",
    lookup="java:global/env/jdbc/ds1",
    authenticationType=Resource.AuthenticationType.APPLICATION,
    shareable=false,
    type=net.fsc.jca.communication.EISUpicConnectionFactory.class)
    In this case the class specified on the type attribute is in a
    resource adapter installed on the application server.
    As part of the deployment, the @Resource annotation is
    analyzed to determine if it is a resource reference or a
    resource environment reference.  The code, as implemented,
    attempts to look at the class specified in the type attribute
    to determine whether the class is an instance of
    "javax.jms.ConnectionFactory",
    "javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory",
    "javax.jms.TopicConnectionFactory", "javax.mail.Session",
    "java.net.URL", "javax.resource.cci.ConnectionFactory",
    "org.omg.CORBA.ORB", or "javax.sql.DataSource".  If the class
    is an instance of any of the above or if it implements the
    getConnection() method, it is considered a resource reference.
    Otherwise, it is considered a resource environment reference.
    When deploying using wsadmin client, the class is not
    available to the client for inspection since it is on the
    server. In this case, the default is to consider this as a
    resource environment reference.  Since resource environment
    references do not include shareable and authenticationType,
    those values are lost.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been updated to notice the shareable and
    authenticationType attributes.  If either of those attributes
    is present, it is assumed to be a resource reference.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.12, 9.0.0.5.  Please refer to the
