When upgrading to Sun Java 6.0 update 15, update 16, or update 17, the IBM Host On-Demand cached client and download client no longer loads in any browser.
The Host On-Demand cached client stops loading even if the client is already installed on the client machine.
The problem produces an exception in the java console:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError. The download client might also fail to load.
Sun introduced a new architecture in Java 6.0 update 10. Consequently, changes in 6.0 update 15 cause a load problem with the Host On-Demand cached client.
This is an issue with the Sun Java and not a bug in Host On-Demand.
Sun has determined there to be a bug in their code and is being fixed in 1.6.0_18.
Here is a link to the Sun bug:
Resolving the problem
Update to Java 1.6.0_18 or later.
As a work around for Java on Windows, the Next-generation plug-in can be disabled in the Java control panel.
- Open the Java control panel.
- Select the Advanced tab.
- Select Java plug-in.
- Uncheck 'Enable the next-generation Java plug-in'.
