APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • We handle the malformed Content-Type correctly,
    however, we are logging the original
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.
    

Local fix

  • A temporary workaround would be to disable tracing for the
    MediaTypeHeaderDelegate class by adding the following trace
    string:
    
    org.apache.wink.common.internal.providers.header.MediaTypeHeader
    Delegate
    =off

    ****************************************************************
    JAX-RS 1.1 requests with invalid
    Content-Type logs
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We handle the ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException so there is no
    need to log the exception. We removed the logging statement to
    prevent logs from getting flooded and to minimize CPU use from
    bad requests.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
