Known Issues

This section provides:

Known Issues Pertaining to HP-UX JDK

If you are using releases of HP-UX JDK 5.0.04, HP-UX JDK 5.0.05, and HP-UX JDK 5.0.06, you may experience an out-of-memory error. Oracle recommends upgrading to the latest JDK version. See

Issues with HP-UX 11i v2 on Itanium

Serial Version UID Mismatch

A serial version UID mismatch is encountered when using WebLogic Server with HP-UX Java 5 (JDK and higher).

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.

Increase MaxPermSize

You may need to increase the MaxPermSize parameter based on application requirements. For example: For the WebLogic Portal Groupspace sample, you may need to increase the MaxPermSize from 128MB to 256MB.

Known Issues for Other Products

To run your products on HP-UX 11i v2 on Itanium, your configuration must include the following components:

To obtain these components and install your products, complete the following procedure:

  1. Go to the following HP Web site:

    Download and install HP-UX JDK 5.0.01.

  3. Go to Oracle Technology Network or Oracle E-Delivery and download WebLogic components for HP-UX.
  4. Note: For important information on how to download BEA products refer to My Oracle Support Note 762254.1 and My Oracle Support Note 763603.1.

  7. Set the WL_HOME variable to the directory in which you installed your product, and export WL_HOME. For example:
  8. $ export WL_HOME=/your_installation_directory/weblogic90
  9. In ${WL_HOME}/common/bin/, modify the value of the SHLIB_PATH environment variable so it points to the IPF32 directory (instead of the PA_RISC directory) under server/native/hpux11. In other words, replace all occurrences of PA_RISC with IPF32 in the ${WL_HOME}/common/bin/ shell script.
  10. Set the following execution modes on the contents of the weblogic90/server/bin and weblogic90/server/native directories:
  11. $ chmod +x $WL_HOME/server/bin/*
    $ chmod -R +x $WL_HOME/server/native/hpux11/*
