JDK TLS handshake error

The Eclipse PD team has identified JBoss running on RHEL 5.x with Java 7u131 may crash when the Solar Eclpse SSL interface (i.e Connection Pool, Session manager and etc..) is accessed from a browser.

This is an Oracle bug, and it is expected to be fixed with java 7u141 release.

The Work-around is to not use java 7u131. Do not install java update or downgrade to an older version if java 7u131 has already been installed.

To downgrade java to older version, 7u95:

yum downgrade java-1.7.0-openjdk-

To exclude java updates when manually installing the RHEL updates:

yum update --exclude=java-1.7.0-openjdk-*

If your system is setup with RHEL automatic update you may temporarily disable it and run manual updates until a fix is available.

To disable RHEL auto update:

chkconfig yum-updatesd off
service yum-updatesd stop
