Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0 using the              *
    *                  internationalization service and web        *
    *                  services.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Exception is thrown when name space     *
    *                      entry is defined.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Internationalization code only expects SOAPElements, but when
    the name space entry is defined, a class cast exception occurs
    because another type of object is returned.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Internationalization code should skip non-SOAPElements and
    continue processing.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.21 and 8.0.0.2.  Please refer to the
