Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When HTTP requests with Chinese         *
    *                      languages such as zh-Hans-CN will       *
    *                      result in an illegalArgumentException.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When HTTP request is initiated
    and if the Chinese Input is enable,
    the header would look like:
    "Accept-Language: en-GB;q=1,
    zh-Hans-SG;q=0.9, en-SG;q=0.8"
    resulting in an exception:
    For example:  ExceptionMapper catched
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
    Illegal locale value : zh-Hans-CN
