    ****************************************************************
    A multipart message uses a boundary delimiter to separate the
    individual parts.  CICS incorrectly modifies this delimiter for
    processing.  This modification may affect input from browsers,
    and cause an AEXZ abend.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHWBRQF has been modified so as not to uppercase the
    boundary delimiter on a multipart message.

  • FIX AVAILABLE BY PTF ONLY
