    *Reproduction steps:* *1.)* Install jdk-6u17 (in order to do this, we can edit catalina.sh file (For windows operating system, edit catalina.bat). Add "export JAVA_HOME=java location 1.6.17 export JRE_HOME=java location/jre" to the head of these files. Java location is where we unzip JDK, just like we set JAVA_HOME. This will make tomcat find specific jdk and jre to run Liferay portal, not system installed jdk.) *2.)* Start a 6.2 Portal and go to home page *Actual result:* home page doesn't show well. *Console exception:* {noformat} INFO [localhost-startStop-1][LicenseManager:?] Failed to find directory C:\Portal\liferay-portal-6.2-ee-sp8\data\license 13:20:40,544 ERROR [http-bio-8080-exec-3][StripFilter:83] java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException at java.nio.StringCharBuffer.subSequence(StringCharBuffer.java:92) at java.io.PrintWriter.append(PrintWriter.java:998) at java.io.PrintWriter.append(PrintWriter.java:35) at com.liferay.portal.servlet.filters.strip.StripFilter.processJavaScript(StripFilter.java:499) at com.liferay.portal.servlet.filters.strip.StripFilter.strip(StripFilter.java:672) at com.liferay.portal.servlet.filters.strip.StripFilter.processFilter(StripFilter.java:397) at com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.BaseFilter.doFilter(BaseFilter.java:59) at com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.filters.invoker.InvokerFilterChain.processDoFilter(InvokerFilterChain.java:204) at com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.filters.invoker.InvokerFilterChain.doFilter(InvokerFilterChain.java:109) at com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.BaseFilter.processFilter(BaseFilter.java:169) at {noformat} *trunk:* could not test.
