Oracle Forms 12c oracle.security.jps.JpsException Error after Database change

My current huge Oracle Forms 12c Migration Project is still going on and every day we have some new problems.

After the DBA's were moving our Repository Database for the new Oracle Forms 12c environments (without any notice to us ...), nothing were working again on our environment :-)

So the first step, were to stop all processes from our Oracle Forms 12c environment:
  • Reports Server

Oracle Forms 12c Java Web Start only shows Splash Screen

I am currently working in a project for migrating several Oracle Forms 11g Applications to Oracle Forms 12c.
One requirement within this project is to use Oracle Forms 12c with Java Web Start in order to get rid of any kind of browser dependencies and to be independent from the classical Java Applet.

The configuration of Java Web Start usage within the formsweb.cfg is really straight forward and simple, just follow the Oracle Documentation.

OpenJDK 9: Jshell – Using Swing / doing GUI stuff

After the buitin commands of jshell and how to load and save scripts i tried to get swing components running.

Bash: enabling Eclipse for Bash Programming | Plugin basheclipse (debugging) part 1

and in Eclipse go to "help --> install new software".
There you have to add the archive:

Mary’s Internet Trends report gives a facts and figures based summary of the current state of the marketplace, and predicts how (more...)

KSCOPE 17 – San Antonio, Texas



KSCOPE is an event I love, and an event I go to, to learn. Membership of ODTUG is something I choose to pay personally. It covers the technology behind the Cloud applications , and whilst we don’t have access to it, I want and need to know how it works. This year KSCOPE was in San Antonia in the JW Marriott resort.

As in previous years I have signed up before the agenda is (more...)

Dark Eyes

Dark Eyes
(A traditional Russian folk song translated by Greg Pavlik)
The eyes so black, passionate eyes
Fiery eyes, so beautiful!
How I love you - how I fear you!
You know I saw your eyes at the witching hour!

I cannot explain your deep, deep darkness!
I see a mourning within you for my soul,
I see the flame of triumph within you:
it consumes my sorrowing heart.
It does not make me bitter, (more...)

ODA X6-2S – upgrade from 12.1.2.10.0 to 12.1.2.11.0 … just a few remarks

Did an update of our ODA X6-2S from 12.1.2.10.0 to 12.1.2.11.0 Patch Bundle and want to share some findings. 

The patching process is described quite good in the README - nevertheless, a few remarks:


  • the whole process took about 2 hours - without downloading the necessary files and preparations (for example: read the README ;-))
  • The time, the update process takes, depends on the number of (more...)

Free Oracle HCM Cloud backgrounds

It’s a common practice to change the background colour of your environments to give a visual clue which is which. This helps reduce confusion and lessens the risk of entering test data into Production.

Whilst the core project team might easily remember which colour corresponds to which environment (e.g. blue=Prod, red=Dev, green=Test) it’s not so easy for more occasional users. There is a solution for this.

We’ve created some semi-transparent backgrounds that prominently feature (more...)

More Articles Published Elsewhere

So it has been a busy week in terms of seeing articles published that I’ve at least contributed to. It’s funny the gap between writing and publishing can be several weeks. So whilst we’re thinking about new things we see the twitter pickup etc or work several weeks old.

Anyway, first up was a contribution to Leon Smiers‘ blog on integrating chatbots. The latest in a series of excellent blog posts looking at  the (more...)
