    ****************************************************************
    JDK 8 SR4 FP 10 changed the return of
    java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry(String) to include ending / for
    a directory.  This might cause a directory to not be found.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebContainer code was modified to accommodate the change
    in the Java JDK.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpacks 8.5.5.13, 9.0.0.6 and WebSphere Liberty  17.0.0.4.

    -Djdk.util.zip.ensureTrailingSlash=false
