    ****************************************************************
    The FFDC introspection code, which interrogates classes in
    order to print their private variables, caused the
    sensitive information to be printed within an FFDC, if that
    FFDC is written whilst processing code within the
    SibRaRecoverableSiXaResource class.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The SibRaRecoverableSiXaResource class has been altered to
    prevent the FFDC tool from writing the data to the FFDC.
    
    APAR PM36685 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.41 of WebSphere
    Application Server V6.1.
