  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Depending on the timing, WebSphere may call JDK default
    SSLContext API before JDK reads javax.net.ssl.keyStore,
    javax.net.ssl.trustStore properties.  When it happens, the
    properties are not honored.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Customer application is setting the     *
    *                      java.net.ssl.truststore properties      *
    *                      and thier outbound SSL connection is    *
    *                      not using them.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The customer is not using WAS's SSL for an outbound
    connection and expexts the application setting of the
    javax.net.ssl.* properties to be picked up.  The SSL code is
    doing something early in setup preventing the user
    javax.net.ssl.* properties from being used.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The SSL initialize was making a call to get the JDK default
    SSLContext early in setup perventing the customers app from
    setting up it's own SSLContext with the javax.net.ssl.*
    properties.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.21 and 9.0.5.9. For more information, see 'Recommended
