Based on  it seems oracle driver is hardcoding
Is it possible SSL is non allowed with BCFIPS only TLS? Does it work without BCFIPS?
Are you using Oracle java?
Yes we are using Oracle Java.
I don't know if the BCFIPS is only TLS. Security Policy doesn't say its prevented. It only says stuff about TLS though. Still researching.
At the moment I have a different error with the application server configured with SSL on the JDBC driver but not configured for SSL at all on the application server. There I'm getting a connection refused. I am anticipating this is likely a firewall or oracle server configuration issue. I have no control on that side of things so am waiting for that to get straightened out.
Once it is, I think there still could be more configuration needed on wildfly for the jdbc. All I know right now for that case is that nothing is getting to database server.
Once I get this SSL connectivity working, I'll be able to know for better whether BCFIPS is the problem. I pinged this group just in case anyone else has seen something like this and could point me in the right direction. I'll look at your link. Thank you for your help
I found this link:
The discussion specifically talks about Oracle 12c, so I don't know whether this applies to you. Step 1 appears to be the critical item, though.
We are 12c. I pulled down the patch and tried it, but still getting the same error so not seeing that solving anything. Our db is definitely not configured properly for SSL yet but given that I'm testing with a FIPS compliant SSL wildfly configured application server and a non-SSL enabled wildfly application server.
Hit return too soon:
