Abstract

When a service integration bus has security enabled applications using JMS may receive a CWSIC8002E runtime exception

Download Description

PK71766 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:?
When a service integration bus has security enabled, applications using JMS may receive an exception with the following message:

com.ibm.websphere.sib.exception.SIErrorException:
com.ibm.websphere.sib.exception.SIErrorException: CWSIC8002E:
An internal error occurred. An unknown or unexpected exception
was thrown by the core API: exception CWSIC8007E: An exception
was caught from the remote server with Probe Id 3-004-0013.
Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException..

This error may prevent applications from connecting, sending or receiving messages.

LOCAL FIX:?

PROBLEM SUMMARY:?

USERS AFFECTED:
Users of the default messaging provider for IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V7.0 with bus security enabled

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
When a service integration bus has security enabled applications using JMS may receive a CWSIC8002E runtime exception.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

The following runtime exception may be thrown a JMS application:

com.ibm.websphere.sib.exception.SIErrorException:
com.ibm.websphere.sib.exception.SIErrorException: CWSIC8002E:
An internal error occurred. An unknown or unexpected exception
was thrown by the core API: exception CWSIC8007E: An exception
was caught from the remote server with Probe Id 3-004-0013.
Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException.

If observed this prevents applications from connecting, sending or receiving messages.

This occurred because the service integration bus code failed to fill in an internal field correctly (the bus name). This was required to authorize a user, so the NullPointerException was thrown and the user was unable to connect to the bus.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:?
This APAR resolves the problem, allowing authorized users to connect to the bus.

The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fixpack 7.0.0.1.
