APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • -1 and 0 both have the same effect for both timeouts.
    
    For connectTimeout, the check in the code is for > 0 so 0 or
    less acts
    as blocking.
    
    For serverioTimeout, the value is expected to be 0 or greater.
    WHen the
    value of -1 is read, it is converted to a unsigned value (very
    high)
    which has the same effect as setting it to 0 (blocking).
    
    If you try to enter -1 as the value (pre-fix), console will not
    accept
    because negatives were not valid values...however, in the admin
    default
    actions, when the checkbox is not selected the value is set to
    -1.
    
    We need an apar opened to correct this (should be 0 when not
    selected).

    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of WebSphere Application Server       *
    *                  plugin component                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Plugin generates a configuration        *
    *                      having a -1 as the serveriotimeout      *
    *                      value which is not value.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the "use read/write timeout" checkbox is disabled, the
    server IO timeout value is shown as 0 on the console but saved
    to the configuration file as -1.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was corrected to save value to the configuration file as
    0 (disabled, timeout when OS times out) instead of -1.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 6.1.0.23 and 7.0.0.5  Please refer to the Recommended
