Error description

  • WAS Session Manager only supports version 0 cookies. CXF
    supports version 1 cookies, and there was a change that went in
    to CXF 3.1.10 to add quotes around values with special
    characters. When we upgraded from CXF 3.0.3 to CXF 3.1.18 with
    WAS 9.0.5 we got this change,

    ****************************************************************
    Version 0 cookie values are wrapped in quotes by the JAXRS-2.0
    client.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Jaxrs 2.0 has been updated to not add quotes around version 0
    cookie values.
    
    However, version 0 cookies are not required to include the
    version in the cookie, and the default JAXRS cookie version is
    1.
    So, we added custom property
    "com.ibm.ws.jaxrs.overrideDefaultCookieVersion" so that the
    user can change the default version of JAXRS cookies. Options
    are 0 and 1, with 1 being the default.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.3.  For more information, see 'Recommended Updates for
    WebSphere Application Server':
