Error description

  • The PTFs for Java 6.0 SR11 (64-bit and 31-bit) are in ERROR.
    
    
    PE Information:
    As delivered, these levels of the JVM fail to load the RACF
    Keystore implementation when using an invocation similar to:
    KeyStore.getInstance("JCERACFKS")
    
    
    Users Affected:
    All users who have applied the affected PTFs.
    Any system running Java 6.0 Service Refresh 11 at 31-bit or
    64-bit. Generic APARs: PM70855 and PM70856
    PTFs: UK81300 and UK81301
    
    
    User Impact:
    SR 11 fixed the problems it reported, but introduced a new
    problem. See Generic APARs: PM70855 or PM70856 for a list of
    fixes in Java 6.0 SR11.
    
    New Problem:
    When attempting to load a keystore, the JVM will erroneously
    report that the keystore implementation can not be found.
    
    Exception:
    java.security.KeyStoreException:
         KeyStore JCERACFKS implementation not found
     at java.security.KeyStore.getInstance(KeyStore.java:100)
    

Local fix

  • Remove / Do Not Apply the offending PTFs.
    
    The issue may be bypassable in code by changing the keystore
    implementation load invocation from:
    KeyStore keyStore =
        KeyStore.getInstance("JCERACFKS");
    to
    KeyStore keyStore =
        KeyStore.getInstance("JCERACFKS", "IBMJCE");
    
    Where the second argument is the name of the provider offering
    the keystore implementation you desire to use.
