1977: SAMLv2 sample configure.jsp files fail on WebSphere Application Server 6.1

On a WebSphere Application Server 6.1 instance, the /sample/saml2/sp/configure.jsp and /sample/saml2/idp/configure.jsp files fail to compile. The configure.jsp files require JDK 1.5, but the JDK source level for JSP files is set to JDK 1.3 on WebSphere Application Server 6.1.

Workaround: Edit the JSP engine configuration parameters to set the JDK source level to 1.5:

  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:


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

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

  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 the application.
