    ****************************************************************
    The activity service uses ThreadLocal storage to store state for
    inbound and outbound requests.  When the Web container custom
    property enableInProcessConnections is set to true Web service
    requests may be processed on the same thread as the caller.  In
    the case where a web services request is made to a provider that
    in turn makes a subsequent Web service request and the activity
    service is being used, the activity service's internal state can
    become corrupted.  This leads to ActivityPendingExceptions.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The activity service request handlers were modified to store
    thread-based internal state in a stack.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.27, 8.0.0.6, and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
