    Problems with embedded Tomcat4.0.3 on AIX

    Jürgen Krannich Newbie

      Hi there,

      I'm running JBoss3.0.0RC2 with embedded Tomcat4.0.3 on AIX5.1 and get into problems when specifying a security-constraint. Everything else works fine in general but as soon as entering a secured area tomcat only returns an internal-server-error (HTML-error 500). On windows the same deployment pops up a 'login-window' as it should do.

      BTW I'm using IBM's jdk 1.3.1 and used their keytool to generate a new keystore-file on my AIX-machine.

      Any ideas? I'd like to be a little more specific but catalina doesn't log any errors/debug-messages about this.

          I fixed the problem myself. The ibmjceprovider.jar of IBM's jdk seems to be signed incorrectly. That's why the classloader fails to load any RSA-related classes (needed for SSL-communication). The workaround is to rebuild ibmjceprovider.jar (resulting in an unsigned jar that will afterwards be loaded without any problems). The exception thrown when trying to load the classes seems to be caught without logging any messages (that's why I couldn't find any hints in the logs).
