APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When an error occurs on the server side resulting in an
    exception, the resulting html that is returned to the client
    has extra </div> tags. This results in the parsing code to
    fail when running SPECjEnterprise.
    
    This is due to the recursive call of a method in
    ApplicationErrorUtils.java in webcontainer.

    When an error occurs on the server side resulting in an
    exception, the resulting html that is returned to the client has
    extra </div> tags. This results in the parsing code to fail when
    running SPECjEnterprise.
    
    Example:

Problem conclusion

  • The WebContainer code was updated to fix the extra </div> tags
    at the end of the default html error page.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 17.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
