    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM Websphere Application Server version    *
    *                  8.0 and 8.5.5 Session Initiation Protocol   *
    *                  (SIP) users                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: SIP uri parameter can contain a legal   *
    *                      character (for example '/') and the     *
    *                      message will be rejected by a 400       *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a uri contains a character that is s paramchar but not
    allowed in token characters (see rfc 3261 chapter 25.1) then
    the uri processing fails and fails the message processing and
    a 400 error is sent.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added temporary custom property uri.param.char that if it is
    true then uri parameter are processed as 1*paramchar and if it
    is false then they are processed as token.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.8 and 8.5.5.1. Please refer to the Recommended
