Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Invalid UTF-8 input causes the Java VM to access system
    properties before they are fully initialized that results into
    exception
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR14
    6.0.1 SR6
    7.0.0 SR5
    .
    The Java VM has been updated to ensure the
    com.ibm.IgnoreMalformedInput system property does not cause an
    exception during startup
    

Temporary fix
