Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Installation and Configuration Guide

OpenSSO Enterprise Pre-Deployment Tasks

Adding GenericJvmArguments

Add the genericJvmArguments using the WebSphere Admin Console or by editing the server.xml file:

  1. Open the following file:

  2. Find the jvmEntries element.

  3. Add the following genericJvmArguments and save the file:

    genericJvmArguments="-DamCryptoDescriptor.provider=IBMJCE -DamKeyGenDescriptor.provider=IBMJCE"

  4. Restart WebSphere 6.1 Application Server.

Adding Security Permissions

If the Java Security Manager is enabled, add the security permissions to the server.policy file, as described in Adding Security Permissions For a Web Container. After you edit the file, restart the web container.

Running the JSP Compiler

The OpenSSO Enterprise JSP files require JDK 1.5 (or later), but on WebSphere Application Server 6.1, the JDK source level for JSP files is set to JDK 1.3 by default.

To reset the JDK source level on WebSphere Application Server 6.1:

  1. Open the WEB-INF/ibm-web-ext.xmi file.

    JSP engine configuration parameters are stored either in a web module's configuration directory or in a web module's binaries directory in the WEB-INF/ibm-web-ext.xmi file:

    • Configuration directory. For example:

      {WAS_ROOT}/profiles/profilename/config/cells/cellname/applications/ enterpriseappname/deployments/deployedname/webmodulename/

    • Binaries directory, if an application was deployed into WebSphere Application Server with the flag “Use Binary Configuration” flag set to true. For example:

      {WAS_ROOT}/profiles/profilename/installedApps/nodename/ enterpriseappname/webmodulename/

  2. Delete the compileWithAssert parameter by either deleting the statement from the file or enclosing the statement with comment tags (<!-- ... –->).

  3. Add the jdkSourceLevel parameter with the value of 15. For example:

    <jspAttributes xmi:id="JSPAttribute_1" name="jdkSourceLevel" value="15"/>

    Note: The integer (_1) in JSPAttribute_1 must be unique within the file.

  4. Save the ibm-web-ext.xmi file.

  5. Restart WebSphere Application Server for the new value to take effect.
