Question 1: A WSAS administrator needs to plan a WSAS topology to allow for firewalls and DMZ. Which of the following topologies would meet this goal?

A. Multiple cells
Question 2: A WSAS administrator monitoring the performance of an Entity Bean EJB in a WSAS application, notices a lot of lock escalations and deadlocks in the underlying database. Which of the following deployment descriptors could cause this problem?

A. EJB methods are not marked with forUpdate flag.
B. EJB methods are marked with multiVersionControl flag.
C. EJB methods are marked with readOnly flag.
D. EJB methods are marked with treeLocking flag.
E. EJB methods are marked with useIntentLock flag.
Question 3: While deploying an EJB application, the WSAS administrator notices the following error:

WSVR0040E: addEjbModule failed for MyApp-EJB.jar [class com.ibm.ws.runtime.component.DeployedModuleImpl] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/ibm/ejs/ras/Tr

Which of the following could cause the error?

A. The WSAS installation is missing the EJB deployment library.
B. Security permissions are not given for the application in the installation_root\properties\server.policy file
C. The EJB jar file first has not been encapsulated in a J2EE EAR file.
D. The EJBrmic tool has not been run prior to deploying.
E. The EJB jar file has a misconfigured ejb-jar.xml file.
me: Possible causes of this error include:

Security permissions are not given for the application in the installation_root\properties\server.policy file.
Check the server.policy file to see if the security permissions are given for the application.

Give permissions for the application in the server.policy file. For example:

//purchaseOrder permission
grant codeBase "file:${was.install.root}/installedApps/myApp.ear/-"{
permission java.security.AllPermission;
};
where myApp.ear is the application name.

A was.policy file does not exist in the application/META-INF directory, while deploying the application to the server.
Check for syntax errors in the was.policy file in theapplication\META-INF directory and make sure the application ear file name is given correctly.
Create a was.policy file in the EAR of the application containing the problem enterprise bean, under the application\META-INF directory with the following contents:
// WebSphere Application Server Security Policy for the application you are running
grant codeBase "file:myApp.ear"
{
permission java.security.AllPermission;
};
.

Exception: Class must implement the inherited abstract method AnnuityHolder20BeanCacheEntry_25ce2e23.setACustEmail(String)

The following error might appear when you use the Application Server Toolkit (ASTK) to regenerate deployment code.

Description:Class must implement the inherited abstract method
AnnuityHolder20BeanCacheEntry_25ce2e23.setACustEmail(String)
On Resource:AnnuityHolder20BeanCacheEntryImpl_25ce2e23.java
In Folder:Annuity20EJB/ejbModule/com/ibm/wssvt/tc/pli/ejb/websphere_deploy/DB2UDBNT_V72_1This error occurs because when you regenerate the deployment code, the old code is not deleted.

To correct this problem delete the folder com.ibm.wssvt.tc.pli.ejb.websphere_deploy.DB2UDBNT_V72_1


Question 4: A WSAS administrator notices the following error in the SystemOut.log:

javax.jms.InvalidDestinationException:
MQJMS0003: Destination not understood or no longer valid.

Which of the following could have caused this error?

A. The JMS destination requires IIOP protocol for access. The JMS client is using the default JMS message protocol.
B. The JMS destination is running on a non-WebSphere environment.
C. The JMS destination was accidentally deleted.
D. The JNDI binding to the destination was changed.
E. The JMS destination is listening on a non standard TCP port.
me: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IY60708
PROBLEM SUMMARY:
This problem is caused by using JMS interfaces to access MQ JMS
classes (i.e. casting a com.ibm.mq.MQQueue to a
javax.jms.Queue).

The use of an (instanceof MQQueue) test was returning false
when an MQQueue object had been cast as a javax.jms.Queue. The
logic then treated this as an invalid object, and threw an
InvalidDestinationException.

Question 5: An administrator manages a WSAS deployment for a stock brokerage firm. The firm receives stock feeds from several exchanges.

A. If new bindings are not present for existing application artifacts, then the current installed version’s bindings will be used.
B. If the bindings conflict and a conflict resolution script is specified, the resolution script would be used to resolve the conflicts.
C. If the new version has bindings for application artifacts, then these will be part of the merged binding information.
D. If bindings are not present in the old version and if the default binding generation option is disabled, then the default bindings will be part of the merged binding information.
E. The administrator has the opportunity to change any of the merged deployment bindings before finally applying the upgrade.

A. The EJB container was sent a HUP POSIX signal.
B. The IBM Tivoli EJB resource monitoring agent embedded in the EJB container generated log events in the system core file.
C. The WSAS debug adapter could not attach to the EJB container JVM and, therefore, created a system core file.

E. The stateful EJBs were passivated into the disk-based system core file.
Question 18: A WSAS administrator observes that many incoming connections to the ORB used for remote IIOP requests to EJBs are being rejected. Which of the following are valid tuning options for the WebSphere ORB?

A. Increase the connection pool size in the ORB.
B. Use persistent connections in the ORB.
C. Increase the listen queue length specified by com.ibm.CORBA.ServerSocketQueueDepth.
D. Increase the connection keep-alive timeout.
E. Use UDP instead of TCP for RMI/IIOP connections to the ORB.
me: com.ibm.CORBA.ServerSocketQueueDepth
This property corresponds to the length of the TCP/IP stack listen queue and prevents WebSphere Application Server from rejecting requests when there is not space in the listen queue. If there are several simultaneous clients connecting to the server-side ORB, you can increase this parameter to support up to 1000 clients. The default value is 50. A valid range is between 50 and the maximum Java int value.
Question 19: An administrator managing a WSAS node, notices the following error in WSAS system log when an application server tries to start up:

Server not starting after enabling Security with exceptions WSVR0003E and ADMC0019E
Technote (FAQ)

Problem
After enabling security, the application server does not start up (in this case, DMGR and nodeAgent comes up but not the servers).

Cause
When security is enabled, the SOAP connector needs to obtain the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) configuration to intialize the SSL server socket. The error occurs when no SSL configuration is specified for the secure SOAP connector.
The error stack would look like this:

By default, persistent enterprise beans created under WebSphere Application Server V4.0's using the fulfill the EJB 1.1 specification.

Question 43: A WSAS administrator notices frequent StaleConnectionException from a JDBC WSAS Version 4 resource. Which of the following are valid causes for this problem?

A. The JDBC database is reaping the connection.
B. The JDBC connection orphan timeout is too small.
C. The TCP keepalive timeout for the JDBC connection was exceeded.
D. A transaction was rolled back on the JDBC connection and thus marked as stale.
E. A duplicate JDBC connection was established causing the old connection to become stale.

me: The application tries to get a connection and fails, as when the database is not started.
A connection is no longer usable because of a database failure. When an application tries to use a previously obtained connection, the connection is no longer valid. In this case, all connections currently in use by the application can get this error when they try to use the connection.
The connection is orphaned (because the application had not used it in at most two times the value of the unused timeout setting) and the application tries to use the orphaned connection. This case applies only to Version 4.0 data sources.
The application tries to use a JDBC resource, such as a statement, obtained on a stale connection.
A connection is closed by the Version 4.0 data source auto connection cleanup and is no longer usable. Auto connection cleanup is the standard mode in which connection management operates. This mode indicates that at the end of a transaction, the transaction manager closes all connections enlisted in that transaction. This enables the transaction manager to ensure that connections are not held for excessive periods of time and that the pool does not reach its maximum number of connections prematurely.
