(Doc ID 1923947.1)

Last updated on APRIL 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have a J2EE application that makes web services calls using JAX-WS toanother J2EE application.
when using SSL for security. We have found that these calls fail with an exception such as this:
[Security:090504]Certificate chain received from - failed hostname verification check. Certificate contained but check expected

As can be seen from the exception the hostnames match but hostname verification is still failing.
