Solving the “java.lang.SecurityException: The provider self-integrity check failed” error with Crystal Reports Server 2011 on JBOSS 5.1

If you are deploying Crystal 2011 to JBOSS 5.1 you may get the following errors in your log

  • Child not found MobileBIService/WEB-INF/lib/bcm.jar
  • Could not initialize class com.businessobjects.bcm.BCM
  • java.lang.SecurityException: The provider self-integrity check failed

The culprit to these two errors are the OpenSearch.WAR File and the MobileBIService.WAR File

There are a few workarounds listed in this JBOSS JIRA Ticket JBAS-7882.

The easiest solution to me was to just explode the two war files, and the errors went away

How to Change PlaceHolder values in Crystal Reports Server 2011 / BI4

I needed to update the placeholders in crystal reports server 2011 for the FRS services.  In CRS2008 I changed them using placeholders.bat, but the current PlaceHolders.bat file is outdated and meant to be used on XI 3 I think.  So first I had to take it upon myself to make placeholder.bat compatible with CRS2011 / BI4. (Because WE ALL KNOW SAP wont do it for us)

Here is the modified placeholders.bat script:

Combine it with Placeholders.class from the (SAP Note 1449399) and now you can change any pleaceholder


First lets test out the command

Now Lets update the 2 FRS Placeholders DefaultInputFRSDir and DefaultOutputFRSDir



the Before placeholder.bat_before

and the after
