Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Release Notes

Changes required for Distributed Authentication to work with Access Manager single War for Weblogic and Webshpere (6554372)

The Distributed Authentication WAR requires additional jar files for parsing for both Weblogic 8.1 and Websphere 5.1 because the container is version JDK14. The JDK14 .jar files are located in the following directory of the .zip file:

ZIP-ROOT/applications/jdk14/jarFix

Workaround:

For Weblogic 8.1:

  1. Configure Distributed Authentication using the setup scripts. See Deploying a Distributed Authentication UI Server in the Access Manager Post Installation Guide.

  2. Explode the updated Distributed Authentication WAR into a temporary location, such as /tmp/dist-auth.

  3. Copy xercesImpl.jar, dom.jar and xalan.jar to the /tmp/dist_auth/WEB-INF/lib directory from ZIP-ROOT/applications/jdk14/jarFix.

  4. Regenerate the Distributed Authentication WAR from the temporary location and deploy it. For more information, see Deploying a Distributed Authentication UI Server WAR File in the Access Manager Post Installation Guide.

For Websphere 5.1:

  1. Configure Distributed Authentication using the setup scripts. See Deploying a Distributed Authentication UI Server in the Access Manager Post Installation Guide.

  2. Explode the updated Distributed Authentication WAR into a temporary location, such as /tmp/dist_auth/.

  3. Copy xercesImpl.jar, dom.jar and xalan.jar to the /tmp/dist_auth/WEB-INF/lib directory from ZIP-ROOT/applications/jdk14/jarFix.

  4. Edit theWEB-INF/web.xml file and replace jar://web-app_2_3.dtd with http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd.

  5. Regenerate the Distributed Authentication WAR from the temporary location and deploy it. For more information, see Deploying a Distributed Authentication UI Server WAR File in the Access Manager Post Installation Guide.
