On Weblogic 12.2.2 version with JDK 8, When using Jolt connection pool, if use application password, following error occurred at Jolt startup even if password is correct:

bea.jolt.SessionException: TPEPERM - bad permissions
at bea.jolt.JoltSession.decodeLOGON(
at bea.jolt.JoltSession.logon(
at bea.jolt.JoltSession.(
at bea.jolt.pool.Connection$EventSession.(
at bea.jolt.pool.Connection.init(
at bea.jolt.pool.SessionPool.estConnect(
at bea.jolt.pool.SessionPool.selConnection(

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Configure the Jolt connection pool with authentication password.
2. Invoke the session pool with below piece of code:
return (SessionPool) connPoolMgr.getSessionPool(joltPoolName);



 Weblogic upgraded from 10.3.6 to, issue is happening in JDK 8
