    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The com.ibm.wspolicy.internal.xml.StringBufferElementWriter
    mistakenly used the JVM implementation specific class
    com.ibm.jvm.util.ByteArrayOutputStream instead of the standard
    java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream
    

Problem conclusion

  • The com.ibm.wspolicy.internal.xml.StringBufferElementWriter
    class was modified to use the standard
    java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.15 and 9.0.0.11.  Please refer to the
