ERROR: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.adf.share.http.ServletADFContext on CCB startup, help button not working (Doc ID 2169605.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : version

After upgrading an instance with Oracle Help for Web (OHW) from Customer Care and Billing CCB / Framework (FW) to CCB / FW, you will find that patch 21784370, which added adf-share-support- to $SPLEBASE/etc/lib is removed.  As a result, the following error will return when starting the application when tailing the weblogic_current.log:

Caller should ensure that a DefaultContext is proper for this use.
Memory leaks and/or unexpected behaviour may occur if the automatic initialization is performed improperly.
This message may be avoided by performing initADFContext before using getCurrent().
For more information please enable logging for oracle.adf.share.ADFContext at FINEST level."

This is also a harmless error message and needs to be fixed on the Help engine (OHW/ADF) itself.
A separate bug fix will be provided to address this. Kindly refer to <Bug 21811196> for more details


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Install Oracle Help for Web on an instance with CCB or upgrade an instance with Oracle Help for Web to this version.

The issue with the help button not functioning can be reproduce by manually adding the removed adf-share-support.jar to the $SPLEBASE/etc/lib directory
