Known issues
  • The recommended interim fix for PH10416 (download here) must be installed together with Application Client V8.5.5, Web server plug-ins V8.5.5, and IBM HTTP Server V8.5.5 Fix Pack 8.5.5.15 on Sun Solaris operating system.
  • Due to a side effect of PH02461, configureInterceptor command may initializes the interceptor prior to its configuration.  PH07760 will fix this issue.  See link for details and iFix download.
  • There is a behavior change in java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry() from IBM SDK V8 SR4 FP10. With this release, the name of the ZipEntry instance returned from java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry() always ends with / for any zip directory entry. To revert to the previous behavior, set the system property jdk.util.zip.ensureTrailingSlash to "false". See here for details.
