In this paper we focus on a special class of commutative local rings called SPAP-rings and study the relationship between this class and other classes of rings. We characterize the structure of modules and especially, the prime submodules of free modules over an SPAP-ring and derive some basic properties. Then we answer the question of Lam and Reyes about strongly Oka ideals family. Finally, we characterize the structure of SPAP-ring in special cases.
