Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server with Java 2 Security enabled in      *
    *                  warning mode by setting                     *
    *                  "com.ibm.websphere.java2secman.norethrow =  *
    *                  true"                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Norethrow option does not work for      *
    *                      checkPermission(Permission perm,        *
    *                      Object context)                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    WebSphere was not handling checkPermission(Permission perm,
    Object context) correctly when norethrow option is set.  It
    does handle checkPermission (Permission perm)
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been updated to handle both
    checkPermission(Permission perm) and
    checkPermission(Permission perm, Object context).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.1.17.  Please refer to the Recommended
