Error description

  • Error Message: On 6.0 (and 6.0_26), IBMJCE overwrites the
    supportsParameter
    method.  IBMJCE returns false for supportsParameter for a
    Signature with a certain key type, but Signature.getProvider()
    prints that the Provider in use is IBMJCE after
    Signature.getInstance()
    and after Signature.initSign() even though another Provider is
    getting control and initializing the Signature (and ultimately
    performing the Signature).
