    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Activity Service throws                 *
    *                      ActivityPendingException after          *
    *                      receiving SAXParseException while       *
    *                      processing a Web Service response.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A SAXParseException was thrown due to an invalid XML character
    received whilst processing a Web Service response.  The thrown
    exception caused the client web service reply processing to be
    bypassed, which resulted in a discrepancy between the Activity
    Service internal counters tracking when the activity is
    currently off-server.  The failure to update these counts
    caused the completion process to incorrectly report that an
    activity was pending and subsequently prevented the activity
    from completing.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Implement improvements to Activity Service exception handling
    to prevent activity completion processing from incorrectly
    reporting a pending activity.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 6.1.0.39 and 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the
