Snapshot deployment PALException should be more meaningful
Snapshot deployment / installation always throw generic PALException exceptions and not the actual cause of the issue. You need to dig through logs to find the actual cause of the problem
Instead of the generic PALException, throw a more meaningful exception that is closer to the real cause of the exception.
Break your snapshot deployment or installation, for example, botching the SSL communication between the Workflow Center and Workflow Server (https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/baw/22.x?topic=workflow-configuring-ssl-communication) and trying to install the snapshot will throw
"JMXTransformException java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.ibm.bpm.pal.PALException at java.lang.Class.forNameImpl(Native Method) at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:339) at com.ibm.ws.util.WsObjectInputStream.loadClass(WsObjectInputStream.java:229)"
While the actual cause of the issue should have been
"com.ibm.ws.security.orbssl.WSSSLClientSocketFactoryImpl createSSLSocket SoapConnectorThreadPool : 0 JSSL0080E: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException - The client and server could not negotiate the desired level of security. Reason: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate"
