WebCenter Application Not Starting When Starting WC_Portal Managed Server (Doc ID 2566393.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The setup contains custom ADF applications which are deployed as shared library to the WebCenter Portal Application. In these shared libraries, there are references to webservices on other systems and so there are few references to the external URL which are either in the form of WSDL or REST endpoints.

If these external systems are down, the managed servers where WebCenter Portal is running are started fine, but the WebCenter application is not getting started. This error is returned during startup:
