APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
IWS client hangs when an HTTP response is returned with an HTTP
status code of 204-No Content.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE71669 :
-----------------------------
The client library was not handling the 204 HTTP status code
correctly.  After parsing the HTTP headers, it simply assumed
there was more data to read without taking into account the
status code of 204.  This has been corrected.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE71669 :
--------------------------------
None.
