Error description

  • Per MIME standards, long parameter values in MIME headers can be
    broken up into smaller enumerated units to avoid wrapping. For
    example, the Content-Disposition MIME header could have the
    following parameters, rather than a single "filename" parameter:
    
    filename*0="sampleAttachmentName";
    filename*1="ABC.gif";
    
    which is the functional equivalent of:
    filename="sampleAttachmentNameABC.gif";
    
    Before this fix, if Traveler did not find a "filename" parameter
    in an attachment's MIME header, in some cases it may have
    generated an invalid attachment name containing only a file
    extension, such as ".gif", ".jpg", etc. This can cause
    unexpected StringIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions when comparing
    attachment refIds and prevent the attachment from streaming to
    the device.
    
    With this APAR, Traveler will prevent these exceptions and also
    search for enumerated "filename" and "name" parameters, to
    account for the cases where longer values have been broken up
    into multiple parts.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • MIME document format standards allow long attachment names to be
    broken into multiple smaller parameters.  This is not very
    common, but it is acceptable format.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler server was updated to handle this format
    correctly when syncing Mime content documents.
    

Temporary fix
