    Illegal key size or default parameters exception in javax.crypto.Cipher

      I am experiencing issues while using a third party encryption in J2EE application. Please find the details below of the exception.
      The application uses JRE5.

      Exception in thread "main" java.security.InvalidKeyException: Illegal key size or default parameters
           at javax.crypto.Cipher.a(Unknown Source)
           at javax.crypto.Cipher.init(Unknown Source)
           at javax.crypto.Cipher.init(Unknown Source)
           at com.ucs.reson8es.external.EncryptionHandler.encrypt(EncryptionHandler.java:41)

      I was thinking the problem is due to the limited key length in JRE. If someone has experiencied such kind of exceptions while using cryptography then please let me know.
