Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Unnecessary setCookie header might be   *
    *                      sent as a response of http GET          *
    *                      request.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Due to a code defect, a setCookie header for deleting
    WASPostParam cookie from the http client might be returned
    even it is not required. This might be introducing an
    unexpected behavior. For instance, The IBM Connections Desktop
    Client Plugin client fails to connect to the Connections
    server due to HTTP error 405. This only affects the interim
    fixes that were published with PI62375.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, the setCookie header is placed only if it is
    required.
    
    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, and 9.0.0.2.  Please
