    routing data to Intelligent Management enabled web servers

    The On Demand Configuration (ODC) component which provides
    routing data to Intelligent Management enabled web servers and
    On Demand Routers (ODR) does not correctly expose uri patterns
    for default servlets as defined by servlet specification
    SRV.11.2 resulting in 404 error codes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The On Demand Configuration (ODC) component was altered to
    properly convey uri patterns used to proxy to default servlets
    as defined by servlet specification SRV.11.2; alleviating the
    404 return codes from Intelligent Management enabled web servers
    and On Demand Routers (ODR).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    packs 9.0.5.8 and 8.5.5.20.  Please refer to the Recommended
