Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: WebSphere Application Server version 6 users *
    *                 who attempt to access JSP files using a URI  *
    *                 that does not exist as part of a web         *
    *                 application.                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: If a JSP is accessed using a URI that   *
    *                      does not exist as part of a web         *
    *                      application (but can be mapped via a    *
    *                      servlet filter), a 404 "File not        *
    *                      found" exception will be reported.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Some web applications may map files from a particular URI to a
    "real" URI that points to an actual resource via a servlet
    filter.  For example,
    http://localhost:9080/webapp/jsp/test.jsp may not physically
    exist under the webapp with context root /webapp in the
    directory "jsp".  However, a servlet filter could be
    implemented that maps URIs starting with "jsp" to "jsp/xyz",
    and perform a forward or include, thereby locating the JSP
    resource in question.  In such a setup, WebSphere Application
    Server does not invoke the servlet filter before attempting to
    access the JSP, and as a result, a 404 "File not found"
    exception will be thrown.
    

Problem conclusion

  • WebSphere Application Server has been fixed to invoke servlet
    filters before determining that a JSP resource does not exist.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpacks 6.0.2.15 and 6.1.0.3.
