    ****************************************************************
    Class com.fasterxml.jackson.jaxrs.json.JacksonJsonProvider has
    a
    field which uses @Context injection. The field is not injected
    correctly and will cause a NullPointerExcetpion when it is
    accessed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.provider.ProviderFactory class, so
    that it will not do context injection for client providers.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.7.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
