Error description

  • The EJB Embeddable Container does not support EJB timers but
    should allow applications with timers to start with just
    a warning, as long as the application does not attempt
    to use the TimerService. This worked fine in WebSphere
    version 8.0, but is now failing with the following
    error:
    
    ContainerException: EJB Timer Service not available for
    TimedObject EJB

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: EJB Embeddable Container throws         *
    *                      ContainerException when using           *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The EJB Embeddable Container does not support EJB timers and
    will throw the following exception when an applications uses
    automatically configured EJB timers (@Schedule) :
    ContainerException: EJB Timer Service not available for
    TimedObject EJB
    

Problem conclusion

  • Although the EJB Embeddable Container does not support EJB
    timers, in prior versions of WebSphere the use of
    automatically configured EJB timers was ignored. In order to
    maintain comatibility, the EJB Embeddable Container will be
    updated to ignore the use of automatically configured EJB
    timers (@Schedule).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
