Applies to:

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


When upgraded to WLS 12.1.3 from WLS 10.3.3 noticing below error while retrieving the EJBObject from handle. This is EJB2.0 stateful session bean.This works perfectly fine on WLS 10.3.3.

The use case involves storing of the handle to the EJB object in HTTP session, and the ClassCastException happens when the EJBObject retrieved from the HTTP session is cast back to EJB Handle instead.
