Download


Abstract

The -d64 JVM property should only be added for the Solaris and HP-UX platforms.

Download Description

PK74488 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:?
The WebSphere Application Server Ant task JVM creation should not add -d64 for JVMs running on 64-bit platforms that do not support this property.

If a WebSphere Application Server Ant task is executed using the IBM JVM on a Microsoft Windows 64-bit platform then it will fail with the error " JVMJ9VM007E Command-line option unrecognised: -d64" as the Microsoft Windows 64-bit JVM does not support this attribute. This attribute should only be added for Solaris and HP-UX 64-bit platforms.

LOCAL FIX:?
none

PROBLEM SUMMARY:?

USERS AFFECTED:
All users of WebSphere Application Server v7.0 WsAnt tasks on a 64bit platform.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
The -d64 JVM property should only be added for the Solaris and HP-UX platforms.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

The -d64 JVM property was being added for all Ant task invocations on 64-bit platforms and as a result caused the following error on platforms where the JVM does not support this property:

JVMJ9VM007E Command-line option unrecognised: -d64

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:?
The -d64 JVM property will only be added on the Solaris and HP-UX 64-bit platforms.

The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fixpack 7.0.0.3.
