Error description

  • When a session is invalidated during a servlet invocation, and
    then a getSession call is made in the same servlet invocation
    after the invalidate call, the session that was just invalidated
    is erroneously returned.
    
    Also, URL rewritting is on by default - this is incorrect.

    calls on the same servlet request;
    URL encoding was always being

Problem conclusion

  • Using the latest 6.1.0 WebSphere Extended Deployment
    DataGrid/ObjectGrid IFIX2, there we various problems seen during
    customer testing of this new function (invalidated sessions
    returned, url encoding occurring when not wanted, valid sessions
    not returned during servelt forward scenarios).  In addition to
    the fix published for this APAR, this fix will be included in
    the  WebSphere Extended Deployment DataGrid 6.1.0 IFIX3 and the
    WebSphere Extended Deployment fixpack 6.1.0.1.
