For environments that are deployed by using Java 8 on IBM WebSphere Application Server version 220.127.116.11 through the last 8.5.5.x fix pack, the log might report that a class was not found when the application server attempts to start Enterprise JavaBeans. If Java EE functionality is not needed, no further action is required. However, to use Enterprise JavaBeans, you must first deploy Pega® Platform with Java 7; you can then run Pega Platform with Java 8 if you prefer.
To prevent this error, do the following steps:
- Set the Java edition for WebSphere Deployment Manager (Dmgr) to Java 7 by using the WebSphere managesdk command, for example:
./managesdk.sh -enableProfileAll -sdkName 1.7.1_64 –enableServers
- Deploy (or redeploy) Pega Platform.
- To run Pega Platform with Java 8, set Dmgr back to Java 8.
The following example shows the log message.
