    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If a 200 response to the plugin didn't contain a reason
    phrase, the plugin would through a 500.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The plugin has been corrected so that the missing reason
    phrase wouldn't result in a different response code than that
    of what was provided by the application server.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.5, 8.5.5.13 and 8.0.0.15.  Please refer to the
