Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using servlet caching.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: HTTP status code 200 is returned to a   *
    *                      client when the servlet or JSP throws   *
    *                      an exception.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The HTTP status code is not set when a servlet throws an
    exception during servicing. Servlet caching catches exceptions
    thrown by a servlet or JavaServer Page (JSP). The WebSphere
    Application Server webcontainer does not see the exception and
    does not set the error status code.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Servlet caching will re-throw exceptions caught while
    servicing a servlet.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.43, 8.0.0.13, 8.5.5.11, 9.0.0.3 and fix pack
    16.0.0.4 for WebSphere Application Server Liberty.  Please
