To perform most management tasks for a Forms instance using Fusion Middleware Control, you start by navigating to the Forms home page in Fusion Middleware Control. Navigate to the home page for the Fusion Middleware Control that contains the Forms instance you want to manage. For introductory information about using the Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, see "Overview of Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Tools" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide. In the Farm pane, click the Fusion Middleware folder, then click the link for the Forms instance. The Forms Home page provides information on the Forms applications that are deployed on the Oracle instance. Lists the names of the Forms applications that are deployed on the Oracle WebLogic Server instance. Displays information about the Target Name, Version, Oracle Home, Oracle Instance, and Host. Use the Web Configuration page in Fusion Middleware Control to configure deployment of Forms applications by modifying formsweb.cfg. From the Fusion Middleware Control main page, click the link to the Oracle Forms Services instance that you want to configure.
The length of time it takes for changes to be saved is affected by the number of lines you have changed. Table 4-3 describes the common tasks that you can do to edit configuration with the sections of a configuration file and their parameters. Use to create a configuration section based on the parameters of an existing configuration section. Irrevocably deletes a configuration section and its contents when you click Delete in the Confirmation dialog.
Enables you to revert all changes made to parameters in a configuration section since the last apply. Enables you to hide or display parameters that are inherited from a parent configuration section. Use this to view parameters that have been explicitly added to a configuration section or to view all parameters (including those that are inherited from the default section).
Add a parameter to a configuration section based on a mandatory name and an optional value and description. This section describes creating, editing, duplicating, and deleting named configuration sections. You can create a configuration section in formsweb.cfg from the Web Configuration page of Fusion Middleware Control. From the Fusion Middleware Control main page, click the link to the Forms Services instance that you want to configure. You can edit the description (comments) for a named configuration from the Web Configuration page. You can make a backup of the configuration section you are about to edit by duplicating it first. In the Web Configuration region, select the row containing the configuration section you want to edit.
You can make a copy of a named configuration for backup purposes, or create configuration sections from existing configurations or other duplicates.
In the Create Like dialog, from the Section to Duplicate menu list, select the name of an existing configuration section you want to duplicate. A section with the same parameters, parameter values and comments of the section you are duplicating is created.
From the Web Configuration region, select the row of the configuration section you want to delete. Oracle Enterprise Manager returns to the Web Configuration page and displays the remaining configurations. From the Web Configuration region, select the row of the configuration section that contains the parameter(s) you want to edit.
In Fusion Middleware Control, from the Web Configuration region, select the configuration section row to which you want to add a parameter. In Fusion Middleware Control, from the Web Configuration region, select the configuration section row that contains the parameter you want to delete.
In the Sections region, from the Show menu list, select the parameter group that contains the parameter you want to delete. When you delete an overridden parameter, the parameter is not deleted but instead regains its inherited status.
For optional parameters, the parameter description may show a non-null default value from the default section of the formsweb.cfg that is shipped with the Forms product. Runform parameters: The descriptions for some parameters indicate that they are runform parameters.
Sub-arguments for otherparams: The descriptions for some parameters indicate that they are sub-arguments for otherparams.
This example means that the applet height is 75% of the size of the browser's content area. Specifies whether dynamic resource creation is enabled if the resource is not yet created in the OID. Specifies whether the URL is protected in which case, mod_osso or webgate is given control for authentication or continue in the FormsServlet if not. These parameters are specified in the baseHTML file as values for object or applet parameters. This parameter determines the visibility of the default windows menu bar and the Windows title bar. Set this parameter to yes to set the number of records buffered in memory to the number of rows displayed, plus 3 (for each block).
Specifies the dots per inch (DPI) and overrides the DPI setting returned by the JVM, allowing you to manage varying DPI settings per platform. Set this parameter to yes to cause Forms to display ongoing messages about trigger execution while the form runs. Note: If your configuration file contains configuration sections with names that contain characters other than 7-bit ASCII characters, then the following rules apply. Set this parameter to true to disable horizontal and vertical scrollbars in the Forms main applet window. Use this parameter to set the frequency at which a client sends a packet to the server to indicate that it is still running.
If the heartBeat is less than FORMS_TIMEOUT, the user's session is kept active, even if they are not actively using the form. Note: It is not recommended to set the value of heartbeat greater than the value of FORMS_TIMEOUT because this will result in the termination of the user's existing session.
When highContrast is set to true, frame labels are black if foreground and background colors are not specified.
Set this parameter to true to enable the display of the aggregate statistics in the status bar.
This network statistics feature is enabled only when this parameter is defined in the baseHTML files. This setting specifies command line parameters to pass to the Forms run-time process in addition to form and userid.
Set the value to true to enable the pinging of the managed server by the java applet when Forms is being rendered. This parameter indicates the maximum amount of time (in milliseconds) that the pingStats parameter must wait for in order to receive a response from the server. The number of run-time processes to be created when the number of prestarted run-time processes is less than minRuntimes. Time in minutes after which all the prestarted processes of this pool (configuration section) is stopped. Set this parameter to yes to prevent the end user from inserting, updating, or deleting records.
Forms applet parameter that specifies the name of file (for example, d:\temp\is) that stores the recorded Forms messages. The full path of a custom key binding file (to be used instead of the standard fmrweb or fmrweb_utf8 files).
This section lists the parameters that can be specified only in the servlet configuration file (formsweb.cfg). Use the Environment Configuration page of Fusion Middleware Control to manage environment variables. Any environment variable that is not defined in default.env is inherited from the Oracle WebLogic Managed Server. Existing Forms processes are not affected by environment variables that were defined after they were started. Environment variables not set in the environment file or Windows registry are inherited from the environment of the parent process, which is the Oracle WebLogic Managed Server.
Table 4-14, "Default Environment Variables" describes important environment variables that are specified in default.env.
In the Environment Configuration page, from the Show menu list, select the environment configuration file you want to delete. In the Environment Configuration page, from the Show menu list, select the environment configuration file that you want to view. Last week we successfully upgraded about 700 forms to 11g R2 in about a WEEK including all installs and infrastructure configuring.
We did in Nucleus Software Noida India for one of our customers and since last 4 months are struggling with FRM-92104 and hang issues. I, on the other hand, happen to have 2 Oracle forms servers, not in a cluster, but on the same server using different ports.
As said above graphics are not supported in forms 11g,is thier any work around to make the graphics work in oracle 11g. Please let us know as we have encountered compilation problems while performing the migration. The error 6508 means that the Forms is not able to find one of its PLL’s library code at runtime. As all my forms and pll are at this path, but I am still getting the same error, should I recompile the libraries as well after setting this path.
It really depends on so many factors that this is not really something I can answer in a post. In any case I usually suggest installing an 11g r2 test server and deploy your application here then run load testing. The best way is to check what is the minimum requirement as per the installation guides and then size the environment (hardware resources) incrementally according to (1) load, (2) application type and (3) Application usage patterns which is best achieved by performing load tests. Are you running the icons in a Jar file that is download using the archive parameter of the formsweb.cfg or as icon files?
If you have icon image files then you must check – What is the path to the icon files? Followed the procedure and configured forms and reports 11g as you mentioned in your document. I’ll ask you a question.What kind of oracle forms clusters are the advantages and disadvantages?
Actually, there is a new white paper discussing Oracle Traffic Director which is a load balancer for Oracle Forms. I am interested to get list of tools that might be used to conduct performance testing for oracle forms. This is a good topic for a blog post someday but you can checkout this Oracle Support note.
Below is a sample code showing how to integrate our java PDF rendering bean jPDFViewer in Oracle Forms. Notice that we update the archive tag and not the archive_jini tag because this bean was tested with the Sun Java plug-in 1.6.

This page displays a set of default performance charts that show the values of specific performance metrics. Oracle Fusion Middleware components generate log files containing messages that record all types of events. This page is used to configure deployment of Forms applications and manage configuration sections and parameters in formsweb.cfg.
This page is used to modify the JVM controllers that can be subsequently spawned for the Forms instance.
This page is used to manage environment variables that define environment settings for Forms run time.
This page is used to associate and disassociate a forms deployment with an Oracle Internet Directory host to enable Single Sign-On functionality. Be sure to save any changes you make through Fusion Middleware Control to Forms configuration or environment files before proceeding to other pages.
For example, an additional fifty lines of comments takes longer to save than just the deletion of a single entry. These configurations can be requested in the end-user's query string of the URL that is used to run a form.
You can add, edit, or delete parameters from the Section pane of Fusion Middleware Control.
These parameters can be specified in the Forms configuration file (formsweb.cfg), as described in preceding sections.
In addition, the parameter description may show the default value that is assumed if no value is specified. That means that in order for the parameter to take effect (when specified in formsweb.cfg or the URL), it must appear in the form "name=%name%" within the value of the otherparams parameter. Set it to true or mod_osso or webgate in an application-specific section to enable Single Sign-On for that application. For each file, include the file name if the file is in the codebase directory, or include the virtual path and file name.
In case of window-bars, this parameter is applicable even if there is a menu specified for that form in the Forms Builder. This is also used by the Forms Home page in Fusion Middleware Control to show the current Forms status.
This causes Forms to send only a single row at a time to the database for an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE, and it causes the database to return only a single row of query results at a time.
If a config parameter is specified in a URL or in the body of a POST request with no specified character set, and the value contains non-7-bit ASCII characters, then the value is interpreted using a character set named in the defaultcharset parameter. This parameter is a Forms run-time argument and specifies whether to escape certain special characters in values extracted from the URL for other run-time arguments. Define this integer value in minutes or in fractions of minutes, for example, 0.5 for 30 seconds. If heartBeat is higher than the parameter session-timeout, then the value of session-timeout takes precedence over heartBeat.
It should be set a value that reflects the customer's hardware configuration (and the portion that can be used by Forms applications). For production environments, to provide better control over which runform parameters, end users can specify in a URL, include the otherparams parameter in the value of the restrictedURLparams parameter. A run-time process is removed from the prestart pool after the client connection is made and thus is not stopped. Specifies a comma-delimited characters that is restricted for use in the request URL's query string. The environment file must be named in the envFile parameter in the Default section of the Web Configuration page. I completed all installations, configuration of files, registry editing, signing of the jar files, HEBREW SUPPORT configuration and upgraded the 10g application. 10g did not really care if we had a piece of code that was not supported on the web or small inconsistencies in the code .
Also, we have a total of 4 servers (each with 2 forms servers and also with 2 reports servers as well). In this version of forms you could no longer develop NEW graphics for your applications BUT it did not have trouble compiling forms that had graphics. This would probably be the most effective way to do load balancing for Oracle Forms systems.
I have installed Oracle Forms 11g in a VM application server(production server) in a development mode. This page also displays the Response and Load statistics and a set of useful links in the Resource Center. Typically, the following values and their parameters should appear in the default configuration section, as shown in Table 4-5. In Figure 4-3, test1 is an example of a new parameter and lookandfeel is an example of an overridden parameter. So, for example, if you are adding the parameter "array" (with a value of "no") to a configuration section, you must also add "array=%array%" to the value of the otherparams parameter. The value of this parameter identifies the port on which the forms engine process is listening. This usually results in the first retrieved record displaying faster, but the total time to display all rows in the query result is longer. Ignored if the servlet request specifies a character set (for example, in the content-type header of a POST). However, only the language-dependent default section and the language-independent default section of the configuration file is searched for the defaultcharset parameter.
To increase the value of heartBeat, the value of session-timeout must be greater than heartBeat. This parameter also affects the contents of the initial page that is generated as the response from the Forms servlet, to ensure the reusability of the applet when legacy_lifecycle is set to true. In addition, any parameter that is listed in the value of the restrictedURLparams parameter is rejected if specified in the URL. Earlier we thought the error will have something to do with a bug or incorrect configuration of HTTP Server. In Forms version 10g there was a way to run the existing Oracle graphics in your application in a client server way. My problem is when I am running one form, its throwing 06508 error , but I am not really not understanding why its throwing this error. The values of this parameter may be specified either as an IANA character set name (for example, SHIFT_JIS) or as an Oracle character set name (for example, JA16SJIS). For more information on this parameter, see "Session-timeout" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developing Web Applications, Servlets, and JSPs for Oracle WebLogic Server.
This default is not recommended, because it leaves the system vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks.
But when we tried using application directly with WLS_FORMS port, the same problem persisted.
It should match the character set specified in the NLS_LANG environment variable, and it should also be a character set that the browser can display.
The 250 users did not even begin to scratch the surface the performance did not degrade by a millisecond.
They even supplied a demo of such in the Forms 10g demo pack that can be downloaded from OTN. Also, if the browser allows multibyte characters to be entered directly into a URL, for example, using the IME, as opposed to URL escape sequences, and to allow end users to do this, then the value of this parameter should match the character set that the browser uses to convert the entered characters into byte sequences.
I have another customer who installed Forms 11g R2 on 32 bit and it was nowhere near our performance.
