Minor Subject: JCE 1.2.1 cert will expire 7/27/2005
Product(s) Affected: WebLogic Server, WebLogic Express, and WebLogic Platform
This notification applies in both WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express. Throughout the rest of this advisory, references to WebLogic Server apply to both products.
I. NOTIFICATIONIn WebLogic Server 7.0 and WebLogic Platform 7.0, customers who wished to use JCE were instructed to download JCE 1.2 from Sun Microsystems' web site. Sun has announced that JCE 1.2.1 was signed by a certificate that is expiring on July 27th, 2005. This will affect WebLogic Server 7.0 customers that are:
- Using JCE 1.2.1.
- Using Java 2 Security.
These customers will need to upgrade to JCE 1.2.2 which resolves this problem.
- Sun's alert describing the problem: http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-101796-1
Applications using JCE 1.2.1 should be considered for an upgrade to JCE 1.2.2.
