Property 'progressiveLocators' does not exist in datasource



User is building a Pega 7.2.1 system with WebSphere 8.5.5, DB2 10.5fp7 and Java 8.

When creating the environment and testing the connection on its datasource a warning is issued:
"DSRA8200W: DataSource Configuration: DSRA8020E: Warning: The property 'progressiveLocators' does not exist on the DataSource class".

However, that property is not supported and does not exist in the class implementing the data-source anymore, as indicated by the error message.
