Error description

  • ?
    During deployment of CTG cicseci.rar from CTG 9.2 into a
    WebSphere Application server running with Java 8, the
    reauthentication-support attribute of an @Connector
    annotation is missing from the generated ra.xml.
    After installing the resource adapter, the descriptor (ra.xml)
    can be viewed in the administrative console by selecting:
    Resource adapters > ECIResourceAdapter > Deployment Descriptor
    The descriptor should contain a reauthentication-support
    element.
    For example:
    <reauthentication-support>true</reauthentication-support>
    Note: Ensure that CICS APAR PI89384 is applied.
    

Local fix

  • If the JVM can switched temporarily to a lower level level, and
    the server restarted, the cicseci.rar can be deployed and
    annotation processed.   Once processed, the server can be
    restarted with Java 8.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The reauthenticationSupport=true        *
    *                      attribute of a @Connector annotation    *
    *                      is lost after installation.             *

    *                  contains an @Connector( ...                 *
    *                  reauthenticationSupport=true ... ), a       *
    *                  reauthentication-support element should be  *
    *                  generated in the descriptor, ra.xml.  For   *
    *                  example:                                    *
    *                  <reauthentication-                          *

    *                  The ra.xml can be viewed in the             *
    *                  administrative console after the resource   *
    *                  adapter is installed by selecting           *
    *                  Resource adapters > ECIResourceAdapter >    *
    *                  Deployment Descriptor                       *
    *                  The problem seems to occur only when using  *
    *                  Java 8 because the order in which the       *
    *                  annotation attributes are processed         *
    *                  changes when using Java 8. The code was     *
    *                  sensitive to the processing order.          *
    ****************************************************************
    The code has been updated to process the annotation attributes
    of the @Connector annotation properly.
