FireFox, IE crash with Forms 10g, Replace Jinitiator with JRE


Oracle Jinitiator is no longer compatible with oracle forms services. By default, Oracle Forms services 10g uses Jinitiator 1.3.1.22 to run Forms applications. Jinitiator was compatible with Internet Explorer 6 and Firefox version 2.0. But latest internet explorer like IE 8 and 9 crash with Jinitiator. Similar behavior is seen with Firfox version 3.0 and later. To resolve this problem, you must configure JRE to work with forms services 10g. It is really easy and requires only very little work. Forms services 10g are by default configured to run with JRE 1.4.2_06. To get this working, locate following lines in your FORMSWEB.CFG file, # System parameter: default base HTML file baseHTML=base.htm # System parameter: base HTML file for use with JInitiator client baseHTMLjinitiator=basejini.htm # System parameter: base HTML file for use with Suns Java Plug-In baseHTMLjpi=basejpi.htm Make changes as shown in bold face below.

# System parameter: default base HTML file baseHTML=basejpi.htm # System parameter: base HTML file for use with JInitiator client baseHTMLjinitiator=basejpi.htm # System parameter: base HTML file for use with Suns Java Plug-In baseHTMLjpi=basejpi.htm Make sue that following parmaments in FORMSWEB.CFG are as mentioned below. jpi_download_page=http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.4.2_06/index.html jpi_classid=clsid:CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-0006-ABCDEFFEDCBA jpi_codebase=http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4_2-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,2,06 jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.2_06 Now install J2RE version 1.4.2_06 from following URL, http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.4.2_06/index.html

OR you can also omit version no from following line, jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.2_06 after ommiting version, above line will look like following jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet Now you can use any latest JRE version. (Thanks to S Shamji and JoeAStudent for thier comments related to version change ) Remove Jinitiator from you computer and restart OC4J instance. Now your Forms application 10g will use Suns Java plug-in instead of Jinitiator.

1. S Shamji says: June 4, 2011 at 12:00 am Hi, I tried you solution and it works with IE and Google Chrome. But does not work with Firefox. It says aditional plugins are required to display all the media on this page Install Missing Plugins I installed the J2RE version 1.4.2_06 but it still asks for the plugin. Please advise. Thanks. 2. admin says: June 7, 2011 at 5:11 pm First de-install all others JRE versions from your system and try again. Following line in formsweb.cfg points to installed version of JRE jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.2_06 You can edit this if you want to use other versions of JRE. 3.

I updated the jpi_mimetype entry from: jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.2_06 to jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet and now I have the site working in Firefox. Thankyou very much. 4. pete says: June 28, 2011 at 1:34 pm Firefox works, but with version 3.5.19. With newer releases it asks for plugin. What to do to make it run in Firefox 4? 5. admin says: June 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm You can try the solution suggested by Mr.Shamji in previous comment. 6. nurul says: July 14, 2011 at 1:12 pm hi, i want to try this solution but not sure where i can get the jre 1.6.0_04 or 1.6.0_16 as im using form patch set 3 (10.1.2.3). can u pls advise me where i can find the installer ?? many thanks. 7. admin says: July 14, 2011 at 5:08 pm Direct link to 1.6.0_16 is under, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/archive-139210.html And you can visit following page to get all JRE releases. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/archive-139210.html 8. Calil says: July 23, 2011 at 1:26 am I did all steps and set jpi_mimetype as Shamji said, but its still not working with Firefox (3.0.19) nor with IE (6.0). Any ideas? Thanks in advance. 9. admin says: July 23, 2011 at 5:42 pm Hi Calil, can you list down the steps you have taken and also tell me that which version of Oracle Application server you have installed or the version of oracle Forms ( if you are using built-in using Forms services in oracle developer suite). And what error you are getting when you run Form in browser? 10. Calil says: July 25, 2011 at 11:42 pm First I uninstalled JInitiator and then I installed J2RE 1.4.2.06. After that, I changed the indicated parameteres in formsweb.cfg, with the jpi_mimetype change done by Shamji, as he told in his comment. Finally, I restarted OC4J.

In Firefox, ORACLE FORMS. is shown and then the browser asks for the installation of a plugin, which the plugin search engine shows that is unknown. In IE, at first the browser displayed the same as Firefox does, but, when I enabled ActiveX, it turned into a blank page. My version of Forms is 9.0.4.0.19. 11. Muhammad Nasir says: July 26, 2011 at 9:46 am Good tutorial it helps a lot thanks 12. admin says: July 26, 2011 at 5:18 pm Calil, Actually I tested it on Forms 10.1.2.0.2 and oracle AS 10gR2. I need to test this procedure for Forms 9.0.4.0.19. 13. Chris says: July 26, 2011 at 6:29 pm I have followed this but IE still attempts to install Jinitiator, if I ask it not to install I get a blank page. It wont run under Chrome. I have made the change suggested by Shamji but the page tells me a plugin is missing in Chrome and attempts the Jinitiator install in IE. Any ideas where I am going wrong? Thanks. 14. admin says: July 27, 2011 at 12:41 am Following line are from original formsweb.cfg file, # System parameter: base HTML file for use with JInitiator client baseHTMLjinitiator=basejini.htm # System parameter: base HTML file for use with Suns Java Plug-In baseHTMLjpi=basejpi.htm Note the comments before each line. by default Forms server tries to load baseHTMLjinitiator. So if you replace basejini.htm with basejpi.htm, it will always load system parameter file which uses Suns java plug-in. 15. Abhay says: August 23, 2011 at 3:45 pm Excellent ! Worked like a charm ! 16. kthroweke says: October 19, 2011 at 10:44 am THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I have been messing with this for the last 4hrs before I found this post. I m running windows 7, IE8 and Oracle 10g. Your instructions worked beautifully!! 17. Esmael says: October 19, 2011 at 6:17 pm Thank you. I have been working on this since last night, finally every thing is working fine except that after opening the page it vanish again. All I can see nothing, but blank page. I guess, I have missed something. Thank you.

admin says: October 19, 2011 at 8:53 pm At first, just execute following URL at your browser and see what happens, http://server-name:port-number/forms/frmservlet Replace server-name and port-number with appropriate value. Also let me know about the browser and its version which you are using.

narayan says: November 2, 2011 at 11:10 am hi, I use oracle 10g and forms and reports 9i developer 2000 . I did change the formsweb.cfg as suggested by you and am able to login to the url of my software package, but after that i am not able to do any data entry. that is getting deactivated whereas the reports are working fine. Please let me know what would be the problem

20.

admin says: November 2, 2011 at 3:47 pm Nayayan, Above procedure is just for Forms. What do you mean by deactivated. Can you see your form and all fields?

21.

narayan says: November 3, 2011 at 6:24 am hi, After i log on i get the screen where there are menus to click on to do data entry or take reports. what i meant was after i log on only the reports tab is working and all other menu buttons is not working. I can send u a screen shot of the page to your mail id if you can provide.

22.

admin says: November 3, 2011 at 9:39 am narayan, Test it on a simple form, for example, a wizard based form based on Employee (HR schema) or EMP(SCOTT schema) table. And the directory where you save you forms should not contain space in the path. Also try following URL, http://server-name:port-number/forms/frmservlet and see does it loads the default form. Above URL will load Test.fmx shipped by oracle. You can upload screen shot on any image hosting site like http://imageshack.us/. After uploading, send me the URL of the image.

JoeAStudent says: November 11, 2011 at 6:51 am This is an awesome article! Thank You. One small comment You dont need JRE 1.4.2, you can use the most recent version, just follow the tutorial and take the version specification off the last line.

Nafaa says: January 5, 2012 at 9:36 am its run but blank page 27. admin says: January 6, 2012 at 4:50 pm Nafaa, Did you uninstalled Jinitiator? Remove all Java plugins from your system and restart it and then try again. Also try it on different browsers.
