    An application server may start using an unexpected Java
    Software Developer óÔé¼Ôäós Kit (SDK) after updating the embedde
    Java SDK from version 6.0 to 8.0.
    The problem can occur on Distributed platforms after swinging
    a profile to a WSAS installation having a different embedded
    SDK; and on z/OS after either mounting a different
    configuration file system or changing an intermediate symlink
    to a different configuration file system, where the mount
    point or symlink connect to a product installation that lacks
    the necessary SDK.
    When a server uses an unexpected Java SDK it may fail
    inexplicably at anytime during its lifecycle. Such failures are
    difficult to determine as their symptoms often manifest long
    after server startup and may not infer their root cause.
    APAR PI78941 will emit warning WSVR0710 if it detects the
    server is using a Java SDK that differs from the SDK enabled
    in the server or profile configurations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • APAR PI78941 emits warning WSVR0710 whenever an application
    server uses a Java SDK that differs from the SDK enabled in
    the server or profile configurations.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.4.  Please refer to the
