Description

Name: js151677			Date: 10/01/2004


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.2_04"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode)

Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.0.0_01

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Wersja 5.00.2195]

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
org.omg.CORBA.UNKNOWN exception is being thrown when one tries to call from a remote client a method in EJB that returns an instance of java.security.Permissions class.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
create simple ejb with method that returns java.security.Permissions.
Call this method with external client (the comunication over RMI-IIOP  must be involved).

Exception in thread "main"

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
The writeObject in this class implementation should look like this (added check if allPermission is not null):

    private void writeObject(ObjectOutputStream out) throws IOException {
    // Don't call out.defaultWriteObject()

    // Copy perms into a Hashtable
    Hashtable perms = new Hashtable(permsMap.size()*2);
    perms.putAll(permsMap);

    // Write out serializable fields
        ObjectOutputStream.PutField pfields = out.putFields();
        if (allPermission != null) {
            pfields.put("allPermission", allPermission);
        }
        pfields.put("perms", perms);
        out.writeFields();
    }
