Issue:Last week one of my customer reported that they are getting
exception in Weblogic environment. They recently applied a patch and after servers are coming up but most of the applications or deployments were in 'Prepared' state. If you try to start them in Weblogic console you will receive the above error.
'oracle.security.jps.wls.listeners.JpsApplicationLifecycleListener' Class not Found
Cause:StartScriptEnabled property in nodemanager.properties file was set to 'false'. This must set to 'true' if you are going to start your managed servers using Weblogic console.
Solution:Simple change the StartScriptEnabled=true in nodemanager.properties file which is usually at WL_HOME/common/nodemanager/ in my case /opt/ora/idm/middleware/wlserver_10.3/common/nodemanager
Restart the managed server using weblogic console
Note: You might not get this issue if you always start servers using command line.
Have a nice day,
