A custom J2EE application is written which calls the OIM APIs, and is deployed to one WebLogic domain, while the OIM server it is accessing via those APIs is running in another WebLogic domain. When attempting to use the APIs, the following exception occurs:

java.lang.SecurityException: [Security:090398]Invalid Subject: principals=[username]
Caused by: oracle.iam.platform.utils.NoSuchServiceException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
at oracle.iam.platform.OIMClient.getServiceDelegate(
at oracle.iam.platform.OIMClient.getService(

Where username is the user the client is attempting to use.

It has been confirmed that the credentials are correct, and the same code works fine when deployed to the same WebLogic domain as the OIM server.
