On WPS7, an exported EAR file from one WebSphere environment could mot started after deployed on another WebSphere environment. When you start the deployed module, you may see the following error in the log:

Solution:

IBM provided a workaround for this issue:

1) Open Export EAR using any compression software (Ex. 7-Zip)
2) Navigate to “META-INF” folder. (Ex. MA_RSDChangeTicketApp.ear\META-INF\)
3) Open “MANIFEST.MF”
4) Add following line in “MANIFEST.MF”
GeneratedVersion: 7.0.0.0
5) Save “MANIFEST.MF”

this workaround works.

IBM are working on the ifix to solve this issue. will let you know when I get it.
