Problem conclusion

  • Additional content-type checking was added to the Web service
    runtime when it was upgraded from SAAJ V1.2 to SAAJ V1.3.
    This additional checking incorrectly refuses messages that
    have a CONTENT-TYPE of "application/dime".  The runtime is
    changed to tolerate "application/dime" messages.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.37 and 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the
