Deploying a J2EE application to an OC4J container in Oracle Application Server 10.1.3.
The OC4J has been configured to use JDK 1.4 instead of the default JDK 1.5 in Oracle Application Server 10.1.3, by setting java-bin option in opmn.xml.
When running the application, the following error is received in log.xml file:
