Slow loading Sentinel Control Center with Java 1.8.0_72-b15

Hello

Trying to start SCC using Java 1.8.0_72-b15 but it loads very slowly
(Initializing...) and the Java Console displays this message on trace
level 3.

security: Validate the certificate chain using CertPath API
security: Missing Application-Library-Allowable-Codebase manifest
attribute for:
https://sentinel.mydomain.se:8443/siemdownloads/console-webstart.jar

It takes over 20 minutes for it to load, in the mean time a messages
pops up telling me that it timed out, but if I don't do anything
eventually it will load the SCC.

Sentinel is using a "real" SSL certificate from StartSSL.com if that has
anything to do with it.

I think we're seeing the same thing on 1.8.74 running on our clients,
with Sentinel 7.4.

Been meaning to open an SR, and this was a good reminder.

Re: Slow loading Sentinel Control Center with Java 1.8.0_72-b15


Confirmed bug.....

They've only tested up to u60 - so only support that far.

I have an SR open for this, but if you can open one too, they might move
a little quicker.... ref my SR # 10991685191

Re: Slow loading Sentinel Control Center with Java 1.8.0_72-b15


Here are some findings on this issue, hope it helps:

This issue is seen due to a bug introduced in JDK.

Here is the related bug which is fixed in JDK 1.8update 74(build # 31 -
b31)

http://bugs.java.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=8148693

This fix is not officially released yet. The official release version of
update 74 is:

java version "1.8.0_74"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_74-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.74-b02, mixed mode) -- That
is build # 02

To see other bug fixes in update 74, you can find them here (Note, all
of them in webstart):

http://tinyurl.com/jc4tb82

Hence I would suggest to wait on your JDK upgrade until the fixes
officially released sometime sooner.

Additionally, I have tested SCC with an early access build update
76(Where these fixes are in) and SCC is working as expected:

https://jdk8.java.net/download.html

Great find, thanks for the info.

I'm running SCC in a VM with an older JRE, works great.

Re: Slow loading Sentinel Control Center with Java 1.8.0_72-

So, even though this was fixed in _76 beta, _77 has broken loading again....

I think MicroFocus are going to have to do something to avoid loading issue.....will log SR again

We agree, and we think the best fix is "get rid of Java at the client" -
and behind the scenes we are working incrementally to make that dream a
reality.

Yeah, but its going to take years.... as David mentioned when he was out here (just before he moved on), the concentration is moving to big data first and, as part of that process, the client should slowly die its long overdue natural death...
