PROBLEM SUMMARY:?

USERS AFFECTED:
Customers using WS-Notification get an exception when accessing "Services > Service clients" link

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
contextId has the deployment parameter which expects an associated application name. This causes a NoSuchElementException.

RECOMMENDATION:
Apply iFix PK71796

Accessing the "Services > Service clients" link for the WS-Notification service client results in an exception on the console.
Details of java exception:
An error occurred while processing request:
/ibm/console/secure/layouts/configboxLayout.jsp
Message: java.util.NoSuchElementException

java.util.NoSuchElementException
at java.util.StringTokenizer.nextToken(Unknown Source)
at com.ibm.ws.console.core.ConfigFileHelper.parseContextId(ConfigFileHelper.java:1204)

An if statement was introduced to check for the application name value in the contextId string, if it is an empty string the tokenizer is prevented from being advanced to the missing element.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:?
The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fixpack 7.0.0.1.
