    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The http accept header needs            *
    *                      additional content to be                *
    *                      interoperable with other webservice     *

    ****************************************************************
    The http accept header needs additional content to be
    interoperable with other web service implementations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A generic JVM argument, com.ibm.ws.websvcs.AppendAcceptHeader,
    is added.  This can be set to a string which will be appended
    to the accept header.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.43, 8.0.0.13, and 8.5.5.11. Please refer to
