InvalidClassException

java.io.InvalidClassException

InvalidClassException is described in the javadoc comments as:

Thrown when the Serialization runtime detects one of the following problems with a Class.
  • The serial version of the class does not match that of the class descriptor read from the stream
  • The class contains unknown datatypes
  • The class does not have an accessible no-arg constructor

author: unascribed version: 1.20, 12/19/03 since: JDK1.1

BAD_CERTIFICATE - A corrupt or unuseable certificate...

This is a simple symptom-cause-solution blog entry only. I hope these blogs will help fellow administrators.
Symptom
In wls_utc, when trying to test a webservice using SSL, the following error message is received: javax.net.ssl.SSLKeyException: FATAL Alert:BAD_CERTIFICATE - A corrupt or unuseable certificate was received.
If SSL debugging is enabled, the following error also appears in the logs: ExecuteThread: '4' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)' <1254822672320>>
verification failed because RSA key public exponent [3] is too small
Cause
The certificate encryption is of a weaker strength than expected by newer versions of Java.
Solution
Add the flag "-Dweblogic.security.SSL.allowSmallRSAExponent=true" to the server startup parameters.

WebLogic Admin Console

WebLogic Admin Console
The WebLogic Admin Console is a web-based, user interface used to configure and control a set of WebLogic servers or clusters (i.e. a "domain"). In any logical group of WebLogic servers there must exist one admin server, which hosts the WebLogic Admin Console application and manages the associated configuration files.
WebLogic Administrators will use the Administration Console for a number of tasks, including:
Starting and stopping WebLogic servers or entire clusters.Configuring server parameters, security, database connections and deployed applications.Viewing server status, health and metrics. Note: It is not strictly necessary to use the Weblogic Admin Console to perform these tasks, as they can be scripted using WLST (the WebLogic Scripting Tool).
Accessing the Admin Console
WebLogic Admin Console Url: http://hostname:port/console.
To access the WebLogic Administration Console, assuming the admin server has been started, goto the above url. Where hostname…
