WAS Liberty 17.0.0.1 does not work with Watson Java SDK

Today i publish a Java Web Application to Bluemix, using eclipse tools.

I get the error bellow when access the app:

Caused by: java.net.UnknownServiceException: Unable to find acceptable protocols.

The application works on my machine (localhost) using WAS Liberty 16.0.0.3. and the app are using the latest watson java sdk.

I found several people with the same problem. It’s hard to understand why the lastest version of liberty on Bluemix has this problem with watson java sdk.

The solution is to use an old version of the build pack.

I did not find a way to pass parameters on eclipse to set the version of the liberty container.

Steps to solve this problem:

1 – Login to bluemix using the cf tool

2 – package your liberty profile : /wlp/bin/server package localhost –archive=server.zip –include=usr

3 – push the package to bluemix : cf push <application name> -p server.zipĀ  -b liberty-for-java_v3_7-20170118-2046 -m 384M
