Changes to Splunk Add-on for Java Management Extensions Logon Functionality in version 4.0.0

I'm trying to figure out what has changed in the "Splunk Add-on for Java Management Extensions" add-on between version 3.3.0 and 4.0.0.

Previously I was able to configure the add-on to use a different trust store and add the required jar files to allow the connection via a REST connector to a server.

This allowed us to remotely monitor IBM WebSphere Liberty application servers.  Liberty currently only supports using a REST connection to remotely monitor.

The changes made in version 3.3.0 where  to add the restConnector.jar file to the bin/lib directory under the add-on install directory and update the java_const.py file to add the 

javax.net.ssl.trustStore
javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword
javax.net.ssl.trustStoreType

java parameters the JAVA_COMMON_ARGS.

 

Now with the same configuration changes in 4.0.0, I am receiving authentication errors connecting to the rest server exact same credentials as previous.  I'm primarily interested if something has changed in the jmxmodinput.jar

Since that is a Splunk-supported app, you should file a case.
