Known Issues

Serial Version UID Mismatch

A Serial Version UID Mismatch Issue may be encountered if you deploy an application on a latest JVM, but compiled with an earlier JDK release.

Workaround: To be compatible with the serialization of previously compiled applications, modify the <BEA_HOME>/Weblogic90/common/bin/ file to include the following command:

JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Alternatively, you can use the command line option:

export JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Note: If you intend to deploy new applications with previously compiled applications, they must be recompiled as necessary to have the same Serial Version UID.

Known Issues for Other BEA Products
