    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: XML parser might incorrectly parse      *
    *                      xsd:normalizedString and xsd:token      *
    *                      types                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    XML parser that is called by XCI might incorrectly parse values
    of
    xsd:normalizedString and xsd:token types. This will cause the
    parser to return an invalid value. Specifically, it was escaping
    some characters incorrectly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Updated the parsing algorithm for xsd:normalizedString and
    xsd:token types to skip incorrect parsing when a certain system
    property is set.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.12 and fix pack 9.0.0.4.  Please refer to the
