Issue/Introduction

Description:

I have a STRUTS application that uses POST and it is getting a 0 byte length call after enabling Siteminder. My SiteMinder version is old (6 QMR4). Is this a known issue? How do I get around this?

Solution:

Please upgrade to 6 QMR5 to take advantage of "OverlookSessionForMethods=POST" as a new Agent Configuration Object Parameter. This will allow the agent to correctly handle the POST to the STRUTS application.
