Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Release Notes

CR# 6527516: Full server on WebLogic requires JAX-RPC 1.0 JAR files to communicate with client SDK

In Access Manager 7 2005Q4 patches, the Access Manager configuration script for BEA WebLogic Server (amwl81config) adds the JAX-RPC 1.1 JAR files to the classpath for the WebLogic instance. While this modification is beneficial to products such as Sun Java System Portal Server, a full server installation (DEPLOY_LEVEL=1) deployed on WebLogic Server cannot communicate with a client SDK installation, and exceptions will subsequently occur.

If Access Manager 7 2005Q4 server is installed on BEA WebLogic Server, the CLASSPATH in the script must be set to the location of the JAX-RPC 1.0 JAR files to communicate with Access Manager client SDK.

Workaround: Before applying the Access Manager patch, set the CLASSPATH in the script for the WebLogic Server instance to use the JAX-RPC 1.0 JAR files instead of the JAX-RPC 1.1 JAR files:

  1. On the Access Manager server, login as or become superuser (root).

  2. Edit the script and replace the CLASSPATH to use the JAX-RPC 1.0 JAR files. For example:

Current value:


New value:


where AccessManager-base is the base installation directory. The default value is /opt on Solaris systems and /opt/sun on Linux and HP-UX systems. AccessManager-package-dir is the Access Manager package directory.

5. Restart the WebLogic Server instance.
