When you attempt to connect to Discoverer Plus by using the Mozilla Firefox browser on a computer that does not have Java 1.6 installed, Firefox does not download the JRE 1.6 plug-in automatically. Instead, Firefox displays the following message: "Additional plugins are required to display this page..."
The workaround is to download the JRE 1.6 plug-in by clicking the Install Missing Plugin link and install it manually.
For WebCenter 11g Release 1, the following platform has been verified with 32-bit JDK:
32-bit IBM JDK 1.6 SR4 +IZ51489+IZ45701+IZ52413+IZ52880
To install and configure WebLogic Server with 32-bit JDK perform the following steps:
Install the supported 32-bit JDK
Export the 32-bit JDK environment. For example:
export JAVA_HOME=/scratch/aime/jdk1.6.0_11 export PATH=/scratch/aime/jdk1.6.0_11/bin:$PATH
Run the WebLogic Server generic installer to install WebLogic Server with 32-bit JDK:
java -jar wls1031_generic.jar
Install WebCenter with the required 64-bit JDK. Unzip the shiphome and go to Disk1, then invoke runInstaller command with
-jreLoc pointing to the 64-bit JDK. For example:
./runInstaller -jreLoc /scratch/aime/jdk1.6.0_11/jre
Run the configuration script to create the WebCenter Domain:
Provide the 32-bit JDK location while running the configuration script. After the domain is configured with 32-bit JDK, no further updates are required.
WebLogic Server JACC(Java Authorization Contract for Containers) uses Sun specific PrincipalComparator which is not supported in IBM JDK and as a result it would throw NoClassDefFound Error.
Download and install the following patches using the Oracle Smart Update tool to resolve the issue:
For more information on the Oracle Smart Update tool, refer to the "Smart Update Tool".
Certain installation types including Oracle Identity Management, Oracle Portal, Oracle Forms, Oracle Reports, Oracle Discoverer, and Oracle Web Tier install IBM JDK version 1.6.0 SR2. This JDK is used by the components within the
ORACLE_HOME and should not be used to deploy SOA or WebCenter or any custom J2EE applications. If you want a single JDK version deployed for all types of applications, you can upgrade from IBM JDK 1.6.0 SR2 to 1.6.0 SR4 (or higher).
Note:Besides getting to the single JDK model, another reason why you may want to upgrade the JDK is to get the latest IBM JDK 1.6.0 version that has the latest fixes.
To upgrade from IBM JDK 1.6.0 SR2 to 1.6.0 SR4 (or higher):
Shutdown all Oracle Fusion Middleware processes.
Make a back up of
Install the new IBM
JDK 1.6.0 SR4 (or higher)at the same
Note:Not all IBM JDK 1.6.0 SR4 versions are certified by Oracle for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware. Check the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations Central Hub for the specific SR4 (or higher) version to upgrade to.
Restart all Oracle Fusion Middleware processes.
To run Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 components like Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle WebCenter on IBM JDK 1.6 SR4, you need to download IBM JDK 6 SR4 plus Interim Fixes (iFix). The IBM SDK iFixes required for Oracle are available at the IBM Java for ISVs download site.
Complete the following procedure to download IBM JDK 6 with SR 4 + iFix bundles:
Go to the IBM Java for ISVs download site at the following URL:
Register for an IBM ID if necessary.
Click Sign In.
Log in using your IBM ID and password.
Enter the associated Access Key
The iFixes are different for different versions of AIX platform.
For AIX Based Systems (32-Bit):

JAVA_HOME. For example:
PATH variable to include
