    ****************************************************************
    Property File Based Configuration apply and validate
    commands need to be more informative with good messages,
    especially in two areas below:
    1. applyConfigProperties and validateProperties commands
    throws NullPointerException error when a property file contains
    invalid config id or config attributes;
    2. The default behavior for the applyConfigProperties command
    is
    to both validate and apply the properties.  Once the properties
    file is validated without error, validation can be disabled to
    improve performance of subsequent invocations.  The validation
    disabling option is not well known to many users.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Enhance the applyConfigProperties and validateConfigProperties
    commands to give more informative messages in the two scenarios
    above.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.7.  Please refer to the Recommended
