I've been experimenting with IVE 6.0R3.2 and IVE 6.0R5 on our aging SA-3000s. A few problems I've noticed in my simple environment.
1) JSAM fails to load under IVE 6.0 with Windows 2003 Server clients. Yes I I know this isn't a supported client but JSAM under IVE 5.5 works great with Windows 2003 Server clients. Tested with Sun Java VM 1.6.0_05 and 1.6.0_06 and IE 7 and Firefox 22.214.171.124. Java VM console window shows:
java.lang.NullPointerException at java.io.File.<init>(Unknown Source) at aa.a(Unknown Source) at d.a(Unknown Source) at CSApplet.start(Unknown Source) at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) basic: Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
And firefox.exe and iexplorer.exe start consuming memory almost like they're memory leaking. Switching the SA-3000 back to IVE 5.5R3 or IVE 5.5R5 and the Windows 2003 clients load JSAM just find.
2) With IVE 6.0R5 and Firefox 126.96.36.199 and Sun Java VM 1.6.0_05 or 1.6.0_06, when a username/password authenticated (local AAA, RADIUS, etc.) user logs out, a few seconds later he is prompted for a client certificate by the Sun Java VM. Very strange! Happens with multiple clients, Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4. We use https://<fqdn-of-sa-3000/ sign-in page for client certificate authentication realm and https://fqdn-of-sa-3000/local sign-in page for username/password authentication realm. I suspect when a username/password user logs out, something is being redirected to the root URL, client certificates. Switching the SA-3000 back to IVE5.5R3 or IVE 5.5R6 or IVE 6.0R3.2 eliminates this problem.
Oh well, IVE 6.0 is too buggy for me at the moment.
