Steps to Reproduce

This example are based on steps from the following note.

Article-ID: <Note 412666.1>
Folder: ST.Middleware.WebServices
Topic: Invocation - TestPage, J2SE/J2EE Clients, UTL_DBWS, WSIF, etc
Title: Using UTL_DBWS to Make a Database Callout to a Document Style Web Service
  1. Load JAR file into a schema (one command at a time) for a or later database. (MUST run both commands as they are).
    loadjava -u username/password -r -v -f -s -grant public -genmissing dbwsclientws.jar

    > />loadjava -u username/password -r -v -f -s -grant public -genmissing dbwsclientdb102.jar
  2. As SYS user execute the following in SQL*Plus.
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.util.PropertyPermission','http.proxySet','write');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.util.PropertyPermission','http.proxyHost','write');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.util.PropertyPermission','http.proxyPort','write');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.lang.RuntimePermission','accessClassInPackage.sun.util.calendar','');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.lang.RuntimePermission','getClassLoader','');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','','*','connect,resolve');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.util.PropertyPermission','*','read,write');
    execute dbms_java.grant_permission('<schema>','SYS:java.lang.RuntimePermission','setFactory','');
  3. Load the function get_joke (as indicated in <note 412666.1>) into the database.
  4. Call the web service.
    SELECT get_joke FROM dual;
  5. After running this command the ORA-29532 error will occur.
