Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2021

Oracle SOA Suite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


From the soa server logfile, the startup proceeds fine until the "Initializing Spring root WebApplicationContext" for soa-infra message :-

####<Jan 2, 2013 12:26:23 PM CET> <Info> <ServletContext-/soa-infra> <prdorafm05> <soa_server1> <[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '1' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'> <> <> <799e23074c976b9f:-5b4f24a0:13bfafeda4e:-8000-0000000000000003> <1357125983142> <BEA-000000> <Initializing Spring root WebApplicationContext>

and then seem to hang.

If a thread dump of the server is taken while the startup is still hanging, the thread above (in this example, the thread is called "[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '1' ") shows the following stack trace :-

"[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '1' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'" id=21 idx=0x68 tid=30507 prio=5 alive, waiting, native_blocked, daemon
