(Doc ID 1207674.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle SOA Platform - Version 11.1.1.1.0 and later
Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager - Version 11.1.1.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After following the instructions to invoke BPEL from a Java Client in SOA 11g you see the following error (in this case JDeveloper was used to run the Java Client) :
