    Unable to run OER console after installation

    venkss

      Folks,

       

      We have currently installed OER 11.1.1.7 on WebLogic 10.3.6. We are running IBM JDK on an AIX box. Install went fine and the OER server startsup without a problem. We can see this in WebLogic console. But when I try to access OER console at http://hostname:port/oer, the following error is written to the log: The same binaries work on a windows box running Oracle Sun JDK.

       

      java.lang.Exception: Provider named 'SUN' not found

       

      I assume this is because of some issue using IBM's JVM running on AIX. Has anyone came across this problem. Any help in solving this error is highly appreciated.

       

      Thank you.

          Hello!

           

          Could you please check this on My Oracle Support: "java.lang.Exception: Provider Named 'SUN' not found" while Starting OER Application (Doc ID 949474.1)

          SYMPTOMS

          1. "java.lang.Exception: Provider named 'SUN' not found" is thrown while starting OER application

           

          Following Stack Trace is thrown on the server side:
          java.lang.Exception: Provider named 'SUN' not found
          at com.flashline.crypto.EncryptedPassword.constructor(EncryptedPassword.java:125)
          at com.flashline.crypto.EncryptedPassword.<init>(EncryptedPassword.java:74)
          at com.flashline.crypto.EncryptedPassword.<init>(EncryptedPassword.java:38)

           

          2. One more symptom is displaying blank page when accessing OER application when installed on IBM AIX machine with WebLogic application server.

          CHANGES

          AIX Operating System
          IBM JDK

          CAUSE

          Encryption Algorithm in OER application is dependent on SUN provider name by default.

          SOLUTION

          Add a property file by name flcrypto.properties in WEB-INF/classes with the following entry

          crypto.providername=IBMJCE

           

          Please note that this property is required when IBM JDK is used irrespective of the Operating System

           

           

          Should be exactly what you have. Please confirm it afterwards

            Awesome! Adding the flcrypto.properties file solved the problem. Thanks much.
