Steps to Reproduce

  1. Deploy a Pega 7 Application in WebLogic 12c
  2. Configure the RULE-CONNECT-CMIS Connector to point to a CMIS repository
  3. Configure the Application to use the CMIS connector above.
  4. Click on the Browse button and observe the error messages above appearing on screen and in the logs

Root Cause



A third-party product issue affecting the library Apache Chemistry embedded in the Product:
  • CMIS-595 – “Fails in Webservices mode with Weblogic12C - Both 0.6 and 0.8 Weblogic exclusive binding jars are tested”

This issue is caused in turn by a bug affecting the EclipseLink Implementation MOXy provided with Oracle WebLogic 12c:

  • Bug 380122 - Error when enum is used with @XmlElementRefs

Resolution



Make the following change to the operating environment:
Restore the standard Glassfish Reference Implementation (RI) JAXB data binding and JAXB providers used in previous WebLogic Server releases as described in "Using the Glassfish RI JAXB Data Binding and JAXB Providers" Oracle WebLogic documentation page.
The recommended approach is to set global server-level databinding and JAXB Providers to use JAXB RI
This can be done in two alternative ways:
  • Applying the entry below to the EXT_PRE_CLASSPATH environment variable:

    export "EXT_PRE_CLASSPATH=$EXT_PRE_CLASSPATH:$WL_HOME/modules/databinding.override_1.0.0.0.jar"

    Check the module path for the right jar name before applying the above change.

  • Setting the following two java system properties:

    export "EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES=$EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES -Dcom.sun.xml.ws.spi.db.BindingContextFactory=com.sun.xml.ws.db.glassfish.JAXBRIContextFactory -Djavax.xml.bind.JAXBContext=com.sun.xml.bind.v2.ContextFactory
