In previous posts I have specified the supported and working WebLogic JDK versions for Oracle Entitlement Server. I have tested protecting the WebLogic Server application where OES Admin is installed on WLS 10.3.1 and it went fine.

However, when I used WLS 10.3.1 for Admin server and tried to install the WebLogic Portal sample application (SimplePortalExample present in ales32-ssm/wls-ssm/examples) , I am stuck up with the below specified error.

Since Oracle provides support only for Certified versions, I could not have a chance to get it working.

Hence the best approach in case you are using WebLogic Portal and OES is to use the supported WLS i.e., 10.3.0 for Admin Server. When I did so, it worked like a charm.
