Last updated on JULY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Suspected that the API for weblogic.security.auth.Authenticate.authenticate is different between weblogic.jar and wlthint3client.jar.

Use one jar (wlthint3client.jar) to compile the program, but with different jar (e.g. weblogic.jar), it complaint about:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: weblogic.security.auth.Authenticate.authenticate

Four scenario testing have been done:

1. Used wlt3thinclient.jar to compile and ran with java -classpath

No issue observed when same client was compiled on WLS10.3.6.
