Lesson 3.3: Check the orb.properties file

With WebSphere eXtreme Scale Version 7.0 or earlier, verify that the SSL works correctly between WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere eXtreme Scale servers. You must edit the orb.properties file in the JAVA_HOME/jre/lib directory must contain the specific properties.

If you are using WebSphere eXtreme Scale Version 7.1 or later, changing the orb.properties file is not necessary. The attributes are automatically added at run time if they are not present in the orb.properties file.


orb.properties file

The following lines in bold text are not in the default orb.properties file in the Java™ Development Kit that is shipped by WebSphere Application Server. Add these lines to the orb.properties file:

Lesson checkpoint

For the WebSphere eXtreme Scale Version 7.0 or earlier configuration, you edited the orb.properties file to contain the necessary properties.
