Installed the Weblogic application server on an external node, and deployed a custom application on the new external node.

While creating an APPSDataSource for the custom application referencing <Note 974949.1> - Software Development Kit for Java Release 11i and 12", the necessary configuration changes on EBS(12.13) and on external Weblogic server (11g version) were completed.

After creating the datasource was completed, assigning it to AdminServer fails with the following error:
