Description Greg Grasmehr 2006-06-06 01:35:45 UTC

I am currently working on a Sun Identity Manager installation on Linux and found
that when I download and use the mail and activation JAR files from Sun
contained within jaf-1_1-fr.zip - Tomcat throws an erroneous exception which
states the signers of all the classes within the JAR do not match.

The JAR itself verifies without a problem: jarsigner -verify -verbose

There is only this single activation.jar file on the system and the only way
thus far I've found to alleviate this exception is to use an unsigned
activation.jar which comes with NetBeans 5.0

Greg, have you had a chance to try this on Tomcat 5.5, preferably 5.5.20?
Comment 2 Greg Grasmehr 2006-12-27 10:48:10 UTC
No I have not and I have also dropped IDM development thus am no longer using
Comment 3 Mark Thomas 2009-07-09 16:32:23 UTC
This works for me with the latest 5.5.x and a signed activation.jar from JAF 1.1.1

If you still see this issue, please re-open and provide steps to reproduce on the latest stable 5.5.x release.
