APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Even though the context-root-rewrite was setup properly in the
    wc-server.xml file, the wcf:url tag did not generate URLs with
    that context if a patternName is not specified.  If asking for
    an SEO URL with a patternName, then the generated URL is
    properly constructed with the simplified context root. However,
    for regular name/value pair URLs, the tag ignored the
    context-root-rewrite setting.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    All WebSphere Commerce  V7 FEP 3 or above users that are using
    the new SEO features.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The wcf:url tag does not honor the simplified context specified
    in context-root-rewrite when a patternName attribute isn?t
    specified.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    OOB WC code is not working as expected
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The wcf:url tag should always generate URLs with the
    context-root-rewrite if it is specified in wc-server.xml. The
    code was changed to make this happen.
