Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.6 still spells dsa as dss

As I found out the hard way several years ago the documentation for Oracle’s FTP adapter in SOA Suite 10.1.3 does not match the code. For public key authentication with ssh-dsa the preferredPKIAlgorithm property should be set to ssh-dsa according to the documentation, but the code expects ssh-dss. It turns out that this bug remains in 11.1.1.6. The documentation still insists on ssh-dsa and the code steadfastly uses ssh-dss. Some things never change.
