    Customers may be running the latest Plugin binary against an
    older WebSphere Application Server backend.  For example,
    IBM HTTP Server/Plugin V8.5.5 to WebSphere Application Server
    V7.0. As updates are made to plugin binary, the older
    WebSphere Application Server plugin generation is unable to
    create an XML that contains a required property.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The application centric plugin generation has been updated to
    allow customers to specify custom properties that will be
    recognized by the plugin generation.  These new properties
    require a recognizable prefix key that the generation will
    strip off prior to applying to the XML.
    
    The new properties need to be set at either the
    Webservers > [webserver name] > plugin properties > custom
    properties page using the prefix of "PLG.Config.", or
    Applicaion Servers > [server name]  > "Administration" >
    Custom Properties page using the prefix of "PLG.Cluster." or
    "PLG.Server.".
    
    NOTE 1:  All servers within a cluster need to have the
    properties specified.
    
    NOTE 2:  Make sure spelling and casing of the property are
    correct.  If it is wrong, the plugin binary will not recognize
    the new property from the XML.
    
    NOTE 3:  You can not use a name of an existing property that
    the current Plugin generation will already include like
    "ChunkedResponse".  Plugin generation already produces a
    property with this name.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.41, 8.0.0.13 and 8.5.5.10.  Please refer to
