Issue/Introduction



We are installing Access Gateway, and we have installed the latest JDK 1.8 update 151, however the steps in the documentation does not apply well as the folder structure does not match with the documentation. How we can apply the JCE patch?

Environment

Access Gateway R12.7

Resolution

From JDK 1.8_151, the process to apply the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength has changed, as the JDK installation package is including already the libraries, and you need only to enable them. You can do it as follows:

- Go to the <JDK_path>/jre/lib/security folder, and edit the java.security file to uncomment the following line:

crypto.policy=unlimited
