Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All Users of IBM Integration Bus V10 and App Connect Enterprise
    V11 hosting REST web service applications.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS, MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    <span style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255)">REST
    application, hosted in an integration server, may reject request
    URL containing special </span><span
    style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255)">characters even when
    the listener allows them. A BIP6311E error </span><span
    style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255)">is thrown when this
    happens.      </span>
    
    For example,if a REST service has an endpoint  as /users/{id},
    an invocation of this service by the client in the  form
    http://localhost:7800/users/5 works but
    http://localhost:7800/users/5+4 will not work due to the plus
    character in it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product now allows special characters in the request URL of
    REST endpoints hosted in an integration server.
