I tried to install JHeadStart on my working copy of JDeveloper (

I downloaded the zip file adn try to install but it give me an error "cannot be installed because it has a required license agreement that could not be read".

If I try to install from "Open Source and Partner Extensions" it requires me a username/password and when I provide my Oracle username/password (working on every Oracle site) it requires again username/password.

Could someone help

    The workaround for now is to unzip the extension’s zip file.

    Then manually edit the bundle.xml file in the META-INF directory to have the license URL include https instead of http.

    Then rezip the files - and use the local install pointing to the new zip file.



    <?xml version = '1.0' encoding = 'UTF-8'?>

    <update-bundle version="1.0" xmlns=""


      <u:update id="oracle.jheadstart.addins.share">

    I encountered the same problem.

    Here is my ways to get it installed:

    1) try to install from "Open Source and Partner Extensions" first. It will ask you username and password and you will never get through it. But it is OK. Go to step 2.

    2) now download the evaluation copy for your computer and install from file. You should be able to install it then.

    Good luck. If still not working, try to install during daytime.

    There is another bug with the Jheadstart 12.1.3 evaluation. Whenever you try to create new service definition it says class not found. This is because it requires for org.apache.commons.logging_1.1.1.jar not the 1.2 version that come with JDeveloper Search and download org.apache.commons.logging 1.1.1 and rename the downloaded jar to org.apache.commons.logging_1.1.1.jar. Then copy this jar file to JDeveloper folder usually Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/oracle_common/modules. Then in Jdeveloper, add this jar to your library (menu Tools->Manage Libraries).

    Then you are good to use all the functions.

    We have stopped developing and selling Oracle JHeadstart. The generic advise is not to build new applications with Oracle JHeadstart since it has not and will not be certified against new releases of Oracle JDeveloper. This means that when you upgrade to a new version of Oracle JDeveloper you may run into issues when using Oracle JHeadstart. Customers that already have a license can of course still use JHeadstart and run their JHeadstart applications but have to be aware of the above.



    PS: we are working on getting the download option off
