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”.
If you create for an example a big adf application you may want to add all of your entities to one base application for reuse labels, validation and and so on. If you have a big database schema than in short time you have a problem to find your entity.
As I have seen in Oracle certification matrix Forms & Reports 11g 64bit is supported under Windows7 64bit. So I tried to install it and to work with it. Unfortunatly there are serious bugs in it, please read for more information MOS Doc ID 1395965.1:
I have done the whole may scripting silent installs of several developer tools. Among them was Fusion Midleware 11.1.2 Forms & Reports. I see that oracle certifies the 64bit installers on win7 64bit and so I have successfully script this after a lot of time. I want not speak about the many errors in silent installers here.
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 middleware to our users.
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!
Many people miss in webforms the possibility to run forms as a separate application. They have a lot of problems to handle browser back button an so on.
The good news – there is way to do this with Java Webstart.
The bad news – it is not supported by Oracle. But we run this since four years now and is very stable.
Following I show you the basic configuration for forms 10g. In later posts I will show you examples for forms 11g, how to handle forms parameters and further more.
