[frs-226] FusionReactor does not load on IBM JVM 1.5 configured with IBM Security Providers

Hotfix 1650 for FusionReactor 3.0.1 – Description

This technote describes a fix for a condition under which FusionReactor will not load on JVMs with security providers reporting different encryption algorithms to the one manually selected.


When the server is started FusionReactor fails to load throwing an error such as:

FusionReactor Exception: FusionReactorLicenseManager initialization exception: com.intergral.fusionreactor.licensing.LicenseException: FusionReactorLicenseManager initialization exception
        at com.intergral.fusionreactor.licensing.d.<init>(FusionReactorLicenseManager.java:364)
        ... truncated ...
        at com.ibm.ws.util.ThreadPool$Worker.run(ThreadPool.java:1497)
Caused by: java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException: Cannot find any provider supporting PBE
        at javax.crypto.Cipher.getInstance(Unknown Source)
        at com.intergral.fusionreactor.licensing.b.<init>(DesEncrypter.java:64)
        at com.intergral.fusionreactor.licensing.d.<init>(FusionReactorLicenseManager.java:338)
        ... etc ...


The issue occurs because the JVM returns a different algorithm string ("PBE") from that requested ("PBEWithMD5AndDES").


Customers with FusionReactor 3.0.1 only should apply the attached Hotfix 1650, which resolves this issue.
