Bug of the week: REP-52262 Diagnostic output is disabled when using reports server 11g on new installation
You may have noticed that when you have a new installation of reports 188.8.131.52 when you try to run a PDF report or even if you simply try to do a showjobs request you get the error REP-52262 Diagnostic output is disabled. It seems that in a (more...)
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Collaborate 13 in Denver, CO. Never in a million years did I expect the conference to take place in a snow storm in the middle of April. If I would have known I would not have brought my 3 month old son
All of you Oracle Forms developers should be very pleasantly surprised by the content and events lineup at this year’s Collaborate 13 in Denver, CO.
It will be a cocktail “happy Hour“ with lots of networking, some sessions from top Oracle Forms experts and a Q&A session with the Oracle Product manager. Come mingle with other Forms and EBS users and meet our (more...)
Last Thursday, on February 7, we ran our first ADF Mobile ODTUG webinar, where we showed a live demo of running Oracle Forms on the iPhone using an ADF Mobile UI. You can download the slides and see the demos here or download the full webinar recording from ODTUG if you are a member here.
Creating the above demo was a truly exciting project for us. We had developed in ADF in the past but had never ventured into the world of iOS or (more...)
There was great news this week for the Forms community. We saw a lot of action in the Forms to ADF Mobile modernization area. Including Blog posts, Free Webinars by ODTUG and even a Poll on OTN Forms forum. We haven’t seen this many people talking about Oracle Forms since the 90′s :)
The world has gone mobile.
So why haven’t our Oracle Forms system caught up?
In our constant effort to show how we can achieve Oracle Forms modernization without re-development we decided to rise to the ultimate challenge and show how we can run Oracle Forms from the newly released ADF Mobile.
In our demo we decided to use the traditional Oracle Forms Summit application as it was developed by Oracle as “go to” demo application to demonstrate Forms functionality, version upgrades and even Forms redevelopment as ADF. In our demo we show the “insert order” business process of the Oracle (more...)

In general I get 2 types of errors from customers when running with Hebrew reports:
Firstly, instead of seeing Hebrew / Arabic characters when a report is run they see various symbols @#!$%^&*. When this happens most people decide to replace the uifont.ali file that comes with Reports 11g R2 with the uifont.ali file that supported BIDI characters from 10g systems. Once they do this replacement they get the second error which is error message (more...)
So needless to say that I am wildly jealous of everyone who will be attending UK Oracle User Group Conference on Dec. 3 -5 in Birmingham.
I was honored to be accepted as a speaker this year but as I am due to give brith on Dec. 9 it would be a bit problematic for me to attend. As those of you who caught my session at Oracle Open World can attest, me in my third trimester is quite a sight up on that podium. But just because I can’t make it to the conference doesn’t mean I won’t do my usual and point out great sessions (more...)
