We were able to set up the tool for WebLogic 9.x.x - provider, but we were not able to view the messages which were in compressible state. We had no problems in accessing other simple text messages.
Initially, the tool just threw errors saying that it cannot deserialize the messages and it needs some classes to do that. But, after adding the Application related jar files to the tool's CLASSPATH it started showing the class and a message that the messages are in compressible state
Here is how it looked like:
Is making changes to the Application code the only way to view these compressible messages?
