APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the HTTP Proxy is used with messages that do not return a
    reason phrase, an incorrect HTTP status is returned.
    
    For example, if the destination server returns this:
    
    HTTP/1.1 599 \r\n
    
    The Proxy is incorrectly changing this to be:
    
    HTTP/1.1 0 null\r\n
    

Local fix

  • Modify the application to return a reason phrase such as:
    
    HTTP/1.1 599 Not Good\r\n
