Problem conclusion

  • When starting a JAX-RPC web service application, the web
    service engine will parse the WSDL and its imported schema
    files using DOM XML parser, which expects a valid URI
    compliant to RFC 3986.  The error happened when an invalid URI
    was passed to DOM XML parser.
    
    The JAX-RPC runtime is changed to detect this scenario and pass
    a valid RFC 3896 URI to DOM XML parser.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.8 and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
    Recommended Updates page for delivery information:
