Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.5 to 12.1.1.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A web service client running on WebLogic server connects to a web service that requires NTLM authentication. 

Since weblogic http handler does not support NTLM, workaround is given to use Sun http handler with -DUseSunHttpHandler. However, this is not accepted in some of customers' production environment.
