    ****************************************************************
    When a soap message is received that is not utf-8 encoded, and
    no encoding is specified in the message, some non-utf8
    characters might be lost.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Normally encoding defaults to utf-8 if it is not otherwise
    specified in the SOAP message.  This can now be changed by
    specifying a JVM property, com.ibm.ws.readSystemLocale.
    When this property is set to true, the encoding used will
    be the one specified by another JVM property, file.encoding.
    The file.encoding property can be set to the needed encoding.
    The default value of com.ibm.ws.readSystemLocale is false.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.3  Please refer to the Recommended
