Table 1 describes issues known to exist in JRockit Real Time 3.0. Entries include a description of the problem and a workaround or solution where appropriate.

Table 1 Known Issues in Oracle JRockit Real Time 3.0
Issue ID
On Sun Solaris 9 or 10 on Sparc, when installing Oracle JRockit Real Time as an add-on to an existing Oracle WebLogic Server 9.1 installation, you must update the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable to point to the sparc64 directory under ${weblogic91_home}/server/native/solaris.
Update the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable by replacing all occurrences of ${weblogic91_home}/server/native/solaris/sparc with ${weblogic91_home}/server/native/solaris/sparc64 in the ${weblogic91_home}/common/bin/ file.
CR294076, CR283776
If you are using Oracle JRockit 1.5.0_07 (or later) with version 9.1 or 9.2 of WebLogic Server, an exception similar to the following is thrown when you start the server: [Management:141266]Parsing Failure in config.xml: javax.xml.namespace.QName; local class incompatible: stream classdesc serialVersionUID = 4418622981026545151, local class serialVersionUID = -9120448754896609940
The problem is actually with the 1.5.0_07 version (and later) of the JDK, in which there is an incompatible change of the serialVersionUID of the javax.xml.nmespace.QName class.
To work around this problem, you must set the old compatibility value. You can do this by simply setting the system property:
Or you can add the following option to the java command in your application server start-up script:
When installing JRockit Real Time into an existing BEA_HOME directory that also contains a WebLogic Server 8.1 installation, the Review Installation Details window of the installer contains formatting errors that makes it difficult to read the overview of the Oracle JRockit Real Time installation.
This problem occurs with the following configurations:
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with JRockit 1.4.2 R27.1 (WebLogic Server 8.1)
  • Linux 32-bit with JRockit 1.4.2 R27.1 (WebLogic Server 8.1)
There is no workaround or solution to this problem.

Please see Known Issues in the Oracle JRockit Release Notes for more information.
