    ****************************************************************
    A CICS ASRA abend takes place when a HTTP GET request with no
    payload is sent through z/OS Connect (using the invokeURI
    attribute under zosConnectService element in the configuration
    file), z/OS Connect's WebSphere optimized local adapters (WOLA)
    service provider, and WOLA to invoke a program running in CICS.
    More specifically, the problem happens when the program attempts
    to set a response payload to a COMMAREA that was wrongly set to
    be of length zero.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to the z/OS Connect WOLA service provider to
    allow a COMMAREA of the correct length to be set.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.8.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
