However, for brevity sake, some of the basic items are listed as follows:
- WebSphere Application Server v7.0 (and the Feature Pack for Web Services on v6.1) both include JAXB, StAX, and the Java Activation Framework libraries (so the support can be obtained from WebSphere)
- slf4j-jdk14 should be used instead of slf4j-simple. This will enable better integration of the emitted informational/trace/debug messages.
- File Serving needs to be disabled in the ibm-web-ext.xml file (if a user wants to use a URL mapping of "/*"
- Shared libraries currently work either attached to the Web Application or at the Application level with a classloader setting of Application. A known JIRA is open to resolve a classloading issue for classloaders set to Module and attached at the Application level.
