Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Release Notes

Specific Java System Properties are not handled correctly by AS 8.2 Startup. (ID 6372759)

Adding the following to the JVM proxy settings causes the server to not start:

<jvm—options> -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080</jvm—options>

Inserting a * character causes a No Class Def Found error (Exception in thread main java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/enterprise/security/store/IdentityManager). Inserting a | character causes the start script to timeout waiting for server to start.

This functionality is critical in order to support Application Server Deployments (and Portal deployments) that reside behind a firewall and need access to both external and internal servers. An example is the Portal Server URL Scraper. These settings are necessary in order to allow the URL Scraper to get content from external sources.


Edit install-dir/config/asenv.conf file, changing the line AS_NATIVE_LAUNCHER="true" to AS_NATIVE_LAUNCHER="false".
