Answer
The WebSphere Application Server 5.0 Administration Console is a Struts-based application that works with Java2 Security enabled. Make sure that you are modifying the was.policy file in the META-INF directory of the EAR file of your application. If you have already installed the application and you are modifying the policy file, make sure you modify the right copy of the was.policy file.
On installation of an application, WebSphere makes a copy of all of the metadata files in the EAR into the /config/cells//applications/.ear/deployments/ folder. Therefore, the copy of the policy file that is actually read by the server is the following: /config/cells//applications/.ear/deployments//META-INF/was.policy. Make sure this is the copy that you are modifying.
Of course, if you reinstall the application with a new policy file, things will work correctly as well.
