Client On JDK1.7.0_301 Unable to Establish TLS Connection With Weblogic on JDK1.6.0_24 (Doc ID 2799599.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2021

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Client on JDK1.7.0_301 unable to establish TLS connection with weblogic on JDK1.6.0_24

Client on server A fails to establish TLS connection to server B.

Server A is running on Weblogic 10.3.6, the application domain is on JDK 1.7.0_301 (recently upgraded).

Server B is running on Weblogic 10.3.5, the application domain is on JDK 1.6.0_24.
It is configured to support only TLS 1.0 with 2 cipher suites(TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5).
Further analysis shows that if “TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA” and “TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5” cipher suites are removed from config.xml of Server B, then there is no such failure.
However, due to some restrictions, this cannot be done on Server B. Need to check for an alternate way to fix it.
