    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The TCP Channel's Host Name Include     *
    *                      and Exclude lists are case sensitive.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Section 3.2.3 of RFC 2616, "URI Comparison", dictates that
    "comparisons of host names MUST be case-insensitive". However,
    the TCP Channel's Host Name Include and Exclude Lists treat
    elements in these lists as case-sensitive. For instance, by
    only defining 'example.com' in the include list, 'EXAMPLE.com'
    would be excluded and the following message would be observed
    with TCPChannel tracing:
    [10/5/15 15:56:39:694 EDT] 00000065 AccessLists   1   Address
    and host name not in include list, address: 127.0.0.1 host
    name: EXAMPLE.com
    

Problem conclusion

  • The TCP Channel was modified so that the Include and Exclude
    Access Lists  will now treat host names as case-insensitive.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.12 and 8.5.5.8 and Java versions: Java
    8.0.2.0, Java 7.1.3.20, Java 7.0.9.20, Java 6.1.8.15, and Java
    6.0.16.15. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
