Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM BPM Standard, Express, Advanced         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Server logs are unnecessarily logging   *
    *                      java.io.FileNotFoundException for       *
    *                      static files.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Server logs are unnecessarily logging
    java.io.FileNotFoundException for static files.  This is
    unnecessary because any non-existing file requested by the
    browser should have already caused a 404 HTTP response.  The
    root cause of this unnecessary exception shows up in any
    filter that does not properly handle the exception. The last
    filter in the chain is the CrossSiteScriptingFilter, so it
    should handle it. These unnecessary exceptions in the system
    log can make the system log file bigger than usual and make
    debugging and tracing more difficult.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The issue is fixed by catching and ignoring
    FileNotFoundException.
