Hi All,

In one of my project we need to use iPlanet 6.0 webserver with JDK1.5. But I tried many time, but all my time went waste (I am not successful on this). I need the following details

1) iPlanet 6.0 will work with JDK1.5
2) If so, How to do this configuration.

Thanks and regards,

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Hi All,

I tried to configure iPlanet 6.0 with JDK 1.5.0_07, now I am getting the below exception. Can any one tell me how to over come this issue.

[05/Oct/2006:16:06:29] info (14036): Using the Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM v1.5.0_06 from Sun Microsystems Inc.
[05/Oct/2006:16:06:29] info (14036): Java VM classpath: /usr/iplanet/servers/plugins/servlets/examples/legacy/beans.10/SDKBeans10.jar:/web/ina

[05/Oct/2006:16:06:29] failure (14036): Internal error: Unexpected error condition thrown (javax.xml.parsers.FactoryConfigurationError: Provid

at com.iplanet.server.http.servlet.NSServletRunner.VSInit(


The Below are the steps i followed to configure the jvm.
Started the https-admin server.
Logged in as admin.
Clicked the link "configure jvm".
Changed the default jre to JDK option and gave the path for jdk 1.5.
After the iPlanet Web server is restarted ; the webserver didnot come up properly raising the exception
[05/Oct/2006:18:04:26] info (17823): A new configuration was successfully installed
[05/Oct/2006:18:04:26] config (17823): Error occurred during initialization of VM
[05/Oct/2006:18:04:26] config (17823): java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError
[05/Oct/2006:18:04:26] config (17823): : java/lang/Object

This exception was corrected by configuring the start-jvm script under the /https-admserv folder.

NSES_JRE_RUNTIME_LIBPATH=/web/inapdev/newproject/jdk1.5.0_06/jre/lib/sparc; [Client jvm]

Finally when the web-server is started, its raising the exception related to xml parsing and failing to start the server.

Thanks and Regards,

I know it is a old post, but I had this need on my current project.

I could solve this downloading crimson.jar from apache ( ) and added it to JDK Runtime Classpath configuration.

It worked so far, but we need to do more tests.
