    ****************************************************************
    If an application is using the redirectToWelcomeFile
    configuration, and the
    com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.RedirectWithPathInfo WebContainer
    custom
    property is set to true, a URI with duplicate pathInfo  will be
    generated when redirecting to the welcome page and a 404 error
    code will be returned.
    Also, this problem will happen if using Liberty with the
    Servlet
    3.1 feature and an application is using the
    redirectToWelcomeFile configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebContainer code was modified to redirect to the correct
    welcome page URI.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.13 and 8.5.5.10 for WebSphere Application
    Server and 16.0.0.2 for WebSphere Liberty. Please refer to the
