    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Mail injection does not process         *
    *                      password specified in mail session      *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When an application contains a mail session that has
    user and password attributes specified, the password
    attribute is never passed to the registered injection
    processor for mail-session. It fails with
    javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException: failed to connect,
    no password specified error when starting the application.
    In web.xml like this:
    <mail-session>
    <name>javamail/jm1Def</name>
    <user>user1</user>
    <password>password</password>
    <host>imaphost</host>
    <store-protocol>imaps</store-protocol>
    </mail-session>
    

Problem conclusion

  • It is a bug in the mail session injection code and it
    assumes the mail session password attribute is
    configured in @MailSessionDefinition annotation, so the
    password will never be passed to runtime if it is configured
    in the application mail-session.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
