    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When more than one application container is active the
    Liberty Profile server applies security checks to the use of
    protocol handlers. These handlers are used to process URLs.
    To determine if a caller application can access a protocol
    handler a check is made on the origin of the classloader.
    Protocol handlers registered with the root bundle need to be
    available regardless of requestor.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem originates in the equinox framework used by the
    Liberty Profile server. An update to the equinox framework has
    been integrated to resolve this issue.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.0.2. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page
