StaticCodeInstructionConstraintException is described in the javadoc comments as:

Instances of this class are thrown by BCEL's class file verifier 'JustIce' when a class file to verify does not pass the verification pass 3 because of a violation of a static constraint as described in the Java Virtual Machine Specification, Second edition, 4.8.1, pages 133-137. The static constraints checking part of pass 3 is called pass 3a in JustIce. Static constraints on the instructions in the code array are checked early in pass 3a and are described on page 134 in the Java Virtual Machine Specification, Second Edition.

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.
In wls_utc, when trying to test a webservice using SSL, the following error message is received: 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
The certificate encryption is of a weaker strength than expected by newer versions of Java.
Add the flag "" to the server startup parameters.


Connection refused: No available router to destination

This is a simple symptom-cause-solution blog entry only. I hope these blogs will help fellow administrators.

The following exception occurs in WebLogic server logs. Most likely to occur during WebLogic server start-up, but similar exceptions may occur at other times. t3://myserver:8000: Destination unreachable; nested exception is: Connection refused: connect; No available router to destination] at weblogic.jndi.internal.ExceptionTranslator.toNamingException( at weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactoryDelegate.toNamingException( at weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactoryDelegate.getInitialContext( at weblogic.jndi.Environment.getContext( at weblogic.jndi.Environment.getContext(

BEASVC.EXE - WebLogic as a Windows Service

I remember the first time I had to work out why WebLogic wouldn't run as a service. It was a frustrating experience. There were no error messages. No Windows error dialog. No console output.

How do you troubleshoot something like this??!!

This short article will show you. For simplicity I'll talk about the node manager, but the same principles apply for running an admin or managed server as a service.

First Steps

First, you still have your server logs. Sure the console output is better, but it's a starting point. Check this log for errors and especially take note of the start up variables such as PATH and CLASSPATH. If the server log isn't being created, that tells you WebLogic probably isn't even being started. (Check that you have a license file if you haven't already.)

Ok, so the logs were no help. The next step is to look at how the service is trying to start WebLogic.

When you install WebLogic as a service, you're really setting up beasvc.exe as the service.…
