Applies to:Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 126.96.36.199.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After upgrading JDK 8, outbound SSL connections do not work from a web service application deployed in WebLogic Server, error "Received fatal alert: handshake_failure" occurs.
For example, the application is unable to make a connection to an external LDAP server (such as Oracle Internet Directory(OID, Microsoft Active Directory (AD))
This has been seen when JDK 1.8.0_102 to 1.8.0_121 and when WLS is configured to only use TLS 1.0 and higher: -Dweblogic.security.SSL.minimumProtocolVersion=TLSv1
