APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
It was found that connections established via QxdaConnectEDRS()
API do not honor system TCP keep alive values. This is causing
issues for customer with Firewall setting to close ports due to
inactivity. This, in turn, causes issues for applications using
XDA because the connections are closed without their knowledge.
If XDA honored the keep alive, the Firewall would not close
these connections with JDE can keep idle for extended periods of
time.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE65097 :
-----------------------------
XDA will be changed to specify the keep alive option on sockets
connection.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE65097 :
--------------------------------
None.
