Abstract

UNNECESSARY SETCOOKIE HEADER MIGHT BE SET AFTER APPLYING AN INTERIM FIX PI62375.

Download Description

PI70737 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
After applying WebSphere Application Server interim fixes for
PI62375, the IBM Connections Desktop Plugin client fails to
connect to Connections with HTTP error 405.

LOCAL FIX:
no work around at this time.

PROBLEM SUMMARY

USERS AFFECTED:
All users of IBM WebSphere Application
Server

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
Unnecessary setCookie header might be
sent as a response of http GET
request.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

Due to a code defect, a setCookie header for deleting
WASPostParam cookie from the http client might be returned
even it is not required. This might be introducing an
unexpected behavior. For instance, The IBM Connections Desktop
Client Plugin client fails to connect to the Connections
server due to HTTP error 405. This only affects the interim
fixes that were published with PI62375.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
With this fix, the setCookie header is placed only if it is
required.

The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
fix pack 7.0.0.43, 8.0.0.13, 8.5.5.11, and 9.0.0.2. Please
