    JCE cannot authenticate the provider JsafeJCE

    Venkat Venkat Newbie

      Unable to use RSA BSAFE JSAFEJCE as a security provider in JBoss 7.1.0. I have the RSA BSAFE jars inside the web-inf/lib directory


      The directory structure is




             |__ Deployments














      The stacktrace also tells that it is unable to verify the jar but when i verified the same jar using jarsigner command the jar is verified.

      I am also seeing the underlying cause as the zip file is empty so couldn't understand what made loading the jar failed. Also i tried creating jboss-deployment-structure.xml in web-inf directory by adding

            <resource-root path="WEB-INF/lib/cryptojce.jar" use-physical-code-source="true"/> 

      still not working. BTW i am using JBOSS 7.1.1FINAL and Java 1.7.51

      Because of this issue i am unable to use JSAFE on JBOSS. Please suggest
