    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In WAS V9 JAXRS providers with subtle   *
    *                      path differences may not be cached      *
    *                      properly, causing the wrong             *
    *                      provider to be invoked.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In WAS V9 a performance modification to CXF code was inserted
    to cache JAXRS providers.  There are problems with this
    caching that prevent proper differentiation between providers
    under certain circumstances.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem has been addressed in later versions of CXF and
    the back-port of these changes is non-trivial.  Therefore we
    have addressed this issue in the short-term by inserting the
    following system property to disable provider cacheing if this
    problem occurs:  com.ibm.webshere.jaxrs.DisableProviderCache.
    Setting this property to "true" will fix this issue.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.10.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
