Last updated on JUNE 03, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.2.0.0 to 12.1.2.0.0 [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

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:

javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: javax.net.ssl.SSLKeyException:
[Security:090504]Certificate chain received from <hostname.domain> -xx.xxx.xxx.xxx failed hostname verification check. Certificate contained <hostname.domain> but check expected <hostname.domain>


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