    ****************************************************************
    A WebSphere Application Server application server propagated
    transactional context on a Web Service request using WS-AT to
    a downstream application server.
    This resulted in the registration of the downstream
    application server's Participant EPR for its subordinate
    transaction branch with the superior branch in the upstream
    application server.  A defect in the WS-Addressing
    component meant that the serialized Participant EPR stored in
    the transaction service logs was invalid and could
    not be deserialized on recovery. This occurs when using WS-AT
    versions 1.1 or 1.2 that use the WS-Addressing 2005/08
    namespace, it does not occur when using WS-AT 1.0.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WS-Addressing component was modified so that use of the
    EPR to target outbound WS-AT protocol requests did not modify
    the EPR's underlying SOAPElement data that caused the
    corruption.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix packs
    8.5.5.20 and 9.0.5.9. For more information, see 'Recommended
