  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Web service invocations may raise
    javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException exceptions at the
    requester indicating specification compliance issues with
    WS-Addressing SOAP Headers in the response despite the
    effective WS-Addressing configuration of the Web service
    requester being disabled via an AddressingFeature.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  WebSphere Application Server  users of      *
    *                  WS-Addressing who have disabled             *
    *                  WS-Addressing on the Web service requester  *
    *                  via an AddressingFeature.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException        *
    *                      indicating WS-Addressing issues         *
    *                      is thrown by the client despite         *
    *                      WS-Addressing being disabled.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the Web service requester runtime processes a Web service
    response that contains WS-Addressing SOAP Headers, the runtime
    processes the headers and policies the specification
    requirements even when the requester has been
    explicitly configured with WS-Addressing disabled via an
    Addressing Feature.  If the WS-Addressing headers in the
    response are not specification compliant the runtime throws an
    exception indicating the error, for example:
    javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: org.apache.axis2.AxisFault:
    A required header representing a Message Addressing Property
    is not present
    When the effective WS-Addressing configuration of the Web
    service requester has been explicitly disabled via an
    Addressing Feature the WS-Addressing headers on the response
    should be ignored, allowing the request to succeed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed so that WS-Addressing SOAP Header
    elements on Web service responses returned to the requester
    are ignored when the effective configuration of WS-Addressing
    on the requester is explicitly disabled.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.8 and 8.5.5.2.  Please refer to the
