    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The Web services client policy          *
    *                      attachments file, "policy-attachments-  *
    *                      client.xml", is not processed by        *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the Web services client policy attachments file, "policy-
    attachments-client.xml", is placed in the META-INF folder of an
    EJB jar, the classloader is unable to find this resource. This
    results in an incorrect SOAP request being generated, without
    the policy configured in the policy attachments file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem occurred because the classloader that was used for
    finding the client policy attachments file in the EJB jar was
    unable to find the resource. The problem was fixed by using the
    correct classloader when searching for the resource in the META-
    INF folder of the EJB jar.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 18.0.0.1.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
