PI43894: A STUB RECEIVING AN HTTP/1.0 REQUEST SHOULD ORDINARILY RETURN AN HTTP/1.0 RESPONSE

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A stub receiving an HTTP/1.0 request should ordinarily return an
    HTTP/1.0 response.  Currently it is possible to build (without
    warning) a stub which receives an HTTP/1.0 request and returns
    an HTTP/1.1 response.  (This should remain possible so negative
    testing remains possible.)  When this occurs TCP sockets are
    left in the CLOSE_WAIT state, and eventually the available TCP
    sockets are exhausted.  This should be prevented (other than for
    additional negative testing).
    

Local fix

  • Correct the stub to return the correct HTTP version, and
    republish the stub.  If there are still ports claimed by the
    CLOSE_WAIT state then restart the RIT-Agent.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * A stub configured to receive an HTTP/1.0 request returned an *
    * HTTP/1.1 response. This situation prevented receipt of the   *
    * response and left the TCP socket in the CLOSE_WAIT state.    *
    * Repeated requests could exhaust all available TCP sockets.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue was provided in version 8.7.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester, and an HTTP/1.0 request now returns an
    HTTP/1.0 response.
