APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Partial matching of the URL can cause routing rules to pass
    messages to the wrong stub.
    
    For example, if the operation is for /operation and a message is
    received using /operation/suboperation, the message is routed to
    the /operation stub which cannot process it.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * On the Stub page for an HTTP operation, the user can clear   *
    * the "Allow Subpaths" option so that stubs for the operation  *
    * accept only exact matches for the destination URL. The proxy *
    * routing rule that was created for such a stub allowed URLs   *
    * for subpaths to be forwarded to a stub that did not allow    *
    * subpaths, resulting in a "503 No stub available" error.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue was provided in version 8.7.0.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester.  A patch is available for the 8.6.0.x
    stream.  If the subpath option is cleared, the proxy now filters
    out requests for URLs that contain a subpath.
