Problem conclusion

  • The fix for apar PM18002 dropped a previous defect fix which
    had allowed OSGi to set the parent classloader to a user
    classloader so that jar files could be shared across the
    bundle. Main.class has been updated to include the previous fix.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.15.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
    page for delivery information:
