APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • It is not possible to establish an SSL connection to TIBCO EMS
    from RIT by following the instructions in the product manual.
    This seems to have come about when the JRE was migrated onto the
    IBM Java platform.
    
    When attempting to publish to EMS over SSL this error will
    occur:
    
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
    com.ibm.net.ssl.HttpsURLConnection
    

Local fix

  • This issue only impacts SSL connections, so not using SSL may be
    a possible work around for some customers.

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem occured because for some versions of EMS (at least
    version 4) the jar files configured in Library Manager were not
    sufficient for SSL connectivity.  This problem has been resolved
    in version 8.6.0.1 of Rational Integration Tester and Library
    Manager now lists the correct TIBCO jar files.  Users affected
    by this should upgrade and then use Library Manager to configure
    the EMS jar files again.
