SSL Connection to Remote Server Fails After JDK Upgrade to JDK 7 Update 181 or Later (Doc ID 2448170.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 17, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Application running on Weblogic server makes a HttpsUrlConnection to a remote SSL enabled server. It is working properly with JDK 1.7.0_151. After upgrade to JDK 7 Update 181 (JDK 1.7.0_181) or later, the connection breaks due to SSL handshake error. With -Djavax.net.debug=all JVM option in place, the following debugging level message during SSL handshake is captured:

*** ClientHello, TLSv1.2
