 Description  « Hide

There are a few CTS javamail tests that fail due to this issue.

The following line in a JavaEE appclient program causes a ClassCastException: javax.naming.Reference cannot be cast to javax.mail.Session

Session session = (Session) ic.lookup("java:comp/env/mail/MailSession");

I attached a simple appclient program to reproduce it

The most likely cause is some classes that are needed on the client side are not availabel at runtime. That could also explain why the same set tests fail in remote client, but pass in server environment.

I remember some time back javax.mail.jar was split into 3 jars, along with some other refactoring:

rw-rr-@ 1 staff 26926 Apr 17 13:19 javamail-connector.jar
rw-rr-@ 1 staff 12859 Apr 17 13:19 javamail-runtime.jar
rw-rr-@ 1 staff 507980 Apr 17 13:19 javax.mail.jar

Dennnis, can you try including both javax.mail.jar and javamail-runtime.jar in appclient classpath?

Adding javamail-connector.jar & javamail-runtime.jar to the appclient command classpath resolves the problem.

Assign to appclient team to see if we can fix gf-client.jar.

gf-client.jar references javax.mail.jar but not javamail-runtime.jar.

Log Message:
Fix for 18610

App clients that use JavaMail were not working correctly without explicitly adding two JavaMail-related JARs to the class path.

This change makes those JARs available to clients.

While resolving 18610 I discovered that even after a mail session was removed on the server, as long as the server was not restarted new runs of the client could continue to open sessions using the resource. Issue 18800 tracks that separate bug.
