Steps to Reproduce

Root Cause

A third-party product issue caused by conflicting jms-1.0.0.jar in the database which had same classes as in  javax.j2ee.jms.jar found in the Websphere plugins directory


Make the following change to the operating environment: Remove the conflicting jms-1.0.0.jar from pr_engineclasses table to resolve the issue. Following SQL query can be used to purge jms-1.0.0.jar from the database:

delete from pr_engineclasses where pzjar like 'jms-1.0.0.jar'
delete from pr_engineclasses where pzclass like 'jms-1.0.0.jar'
