BRM 12.3 Interim Patch 3: Pcm.jar Compatibility (Doc ID 2739155.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 23, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 12.0.0.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Using application called WebSphere Process Server which is connecting to Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) for order processing.

Upgraded from BRM 7.5 PS22 to BRM 12.3 IP3 , there is a change in pcm.jar and pcmext.jar files. These jar files are used by this application. After replacing the 7.5 PS22 jar files with BRM 12.3 IP3 server side jar files, this application gives below error -


This application is using JVM 1.6. Cannot update this JVM version as it comes along with the application.

While verifying the BRM 7.5 PS22 jar file, in MANIFEST.MF , it has below:
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.9.4
Created-By: 1.6.0_26-b03
Permissions: all-permissions
Codebase: *
Application-Name: Oracle BRM

Where as in BRM 12.3 IP3 jar file:
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.9.4
Created-By: 1.8.0_144-b01
Permissions: all-permissions
Codebase: *
Application-Name: Oracle BRM

This confirms that 12.3 IP3 jar files are not compatible with JVM 1.6 which this application is using.

Following are the questions to make this application work considering the limitation of JVM:

1) Can Oracle provide these 2 jars files compatible with 1.6 version like in BRM 7.5 PS22?
2) Can customer continue using pcm.jar and pcmext.jar files from 7.5PS22 ? Is yes, what is the difference in these jar files from version 7.5PS22 to IP3 to evaluate the impact?
