hello all

I have a web service based on Spring WS (2.0.4, SpringFramework version 3.1.0.RELEASE) that exposes the functionality to login and perform SCM operations using RTC Plain Java API 4.0.3.
Installing and executing the application in Tomcat 7.x is successful. 
However, when using WAS 8.5.5, I have two problems while logging into the RTC server:

The first one has to do with a problem already described in this url :

https://jazz.net/forum/questions/75680/cant-connect-to-jazz-server-in-was-70




After trying the proposed solution in this link (changing the classloading policy and I have included all Plain Java libraries in the WEB-INF/lib folder of my war file) the application now throws the following exception:

When I look at this line:

org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.Activator.getURLConverter(Activator.java:322), I realize that the Activator class is that which is found in the RTC jar file: org.eclipse.equinox.common:3.6.0.v20100503.jar....


Has anyone found this type of problem before?

Here is my current configuration:

JDK : 1.7.0
WAS : 8.5.5
RTC API and server: 4.0.3
Springframework : 3.1.0 Release
Spring-WS: 2.0.4
