Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the administrative console to  *
    *                  manage server transport include/exclude     *
    *                  paths.                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException  *
    *                      is thrown in the SystemOut.log when     *
    *                      trying to set server transport          *
    *                      include/exclude path                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The regex to verify server transport include/exclude paths no
    longer worked after upgrading to java8 and an exception would
    be thrown when these values were provided on the console
    

Problem conclusion

  • The validation was modified so that the regex used for
    validation work with all the current versions of java.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.5.3, 8.5.5.17.  Please refer to the Recommended
