Oracle Forms & Reports, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, is Oracle's long-established technology to design and build enterprise applications quickly and efficiently. It has proved to be extremely successful, both among third party ISVs as well as at Oracle itself – Oracle’s E-Business (more...)
Here one day before deadline, I have entered almost my entire current catalog of presentations for consideration in the Oracle OpenWorld 2013 agenda. One new for this year: “Worst Oracle ADF Project Ever”
If you would like me to speak at one of your events, the following are the presentations (more...)
Do you see a slow start of your weblogic managed server for forms & reports on unix derivate? We have this problem on Suse SLES 11 and forms and reports 11.1.2.
In November I attended the annual DOAG (German Oracle User Group) conference in Nuremberg. There I’ve heare an interesting presentation from Jan-Peter Timmermann about “Performance with Forms 11gR2 Weblogic 10.3.x”.

As we use TranslationHub for translating our forms, menus and reports, I tried last weeks to script this and after this to batch import all my original and translated modules as 11g versions, as this is required before roll out fusion (more...)
According to my last post today I will show you the basic configuration for forms 11g.
Unfortunatly webstart in forms 11g it is not as easy as in 10g, but it works too!
As first you need an additional unique identifier “ifsessid” in parameter ”serverURL” for forms. This prevents the use of a static jnlp in this case. Maybe it is possible to branch out the build of this unique identifier from the jnlp. I have decided instead to create the the jnlp from a java server page. This helps me additional to use forms parameters, which I will describe in a later post. Sure there maybe (more...)
