APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a URL request is audited for valid values, there should be
    more detail than today's
    current:java.lang.IllegalArgumentException.   There are
    multiple things that could be wrong and sharing some additional
    detail on why the URI was an illegal argument would be more
    helpful information.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V8.5                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The WAS URL handler throws an           *
    *                      exception with an                       *
    *                      insufficiently-detailed message.        *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The WAS utility that parses URLs checks for illegal URL
    structure, particularly URLs that escape ("..") past their
    point of origin, and throws an IllegalStateException if this
    occurs.  The exception text includes the URL but does
    not specify why the exception was thrown.
