Additional Policy .jar Files Required To Run SME

To correctly use ebXML Protocol Manager, you must download and apply additional policy .jar files. This operation provides reliable cryptographic features that use libraries supplied with SeeBeyond Secure Messaging Extension (SME), contained in the SMEWebServices.sar installation file.

The type of .jar files required depends on the version of Java Virtual Machine (JVM) you are using. Refer to your JVM vendor for exact details on the specific policy .jar file requirements.

Use Table 2–1 to determine which JRE is included in your eGate Logical Host.
