Error description

  • Your CICS is acting as a Web Service Requester and your task
    issues an EXEC CICS INVOKE SERVICE command. The Service Provider
    returns an HTTP status code 302 (redirect).
    
    The status code 302 means the requested resource resides
    temporarily under a different URI. The HTTP header provides
    the temporary URI Location.
    
    The DFHPI0002 x'0507' is produced when DFHPITH calls DFHWBCL for
    READ_RESPONSE and is returned an exception with wbcl_reason
    WBCL_HEADER_NOT_FOUND. This is an unexpected response from
    DFHWBCL. DFHPITH sets pitg_response to PIT_DISASTER and invokes
    routine dfhpith_severe_error with tid_pith_wbcl_failure x'0507'
    and issues message DFHPI0002.

    CICS is acting as a Web Service Requester and issuing an EXEC
    CICS INVOKE SERVICE command.
    The Web Service Provider returns an HTTP 302 response with a
    Location HTTP header.
    The CICS pipeline code in DFHPITH does not handle the 302
    response in a way to allow the applications to redirect the
    request.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CICS has been changed to handle the HTTP 302 ,303 and 307
    response,and puts the supplied Location header into the
    DFHWS-LOCATION container.
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 4 Release 1
    Application Programming Reference,SC34-7023-02 has been altered
    to add a new RESP2 value 109 for INVEREQ for command INVOKE
    SERVICE.
    The following has been added to say:
    
    "109 HTTP redirect(302,303 or 307) response was returned.The
    Location header is available in the DFHWS-LOCATION container."
    
    Same update applies to V4.2.
    
    CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 4 Release 1 Web
    Services Guide,SC34-7020-00 has been altered in Chapter 7
    ('Creating the Web services infrastructure') under the heading
    of 'Context containers' to add a new container DFHWS-LOCATION
    to context containers.
    The following has been added to say:
    
    "DFHWS-LOCATION container
     DFHWS-LOCATION is a container of DATATYPE(CHAR) that contains
     the supplied Location header when the HTTP response was 302,303
     or 307."
    
    Same update applies to V4.2.
