    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An MTOM attachment might be             *
    *                      unexpectedly truncated.                 *

    ****************************************************************
    The MTOM attachment code calls a stream reader containing an
    int read() method which can read a single byte. The byte value
    was not being correctly converted to unsigned form. As a
    result, if a byte having value of -1 was read, it could be
    incorrectly interpreted as indicating end-of-stream, which
    would cause the the attachment to be truncated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been corrected so this problem no longer occurs.
    This problem is not present in WebSphere Application Server
    version 8 and higher.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.27  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
