Local fix

Problem summary

  • ThinClient failure while doing ORB initialization
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases:
       6 R1 SR8       (6.1.8.0)
       5.0  SR16 FP6  (5.0.16.6)
       7 R1 SR1       (7.1.1.0)
       7    SR7       (7.0.7.0)
       6    SR16      (6.0.16.0)
    .
    Due to wrong class loader is being used to load ORB and another
    class loader is used to initialize the fields of the orb
    instance, there is miss- match and ClassCastException is thrown
    while initializing the fields of the ORB instance.
    

Temporary fix
