    Accessing my application server

    user626836
      Hi everyone,
      I have installed Fusion MiddleWare, Weblogic and Oracle Database 11g in the same server for the first time and is working fine so far, but I need to know if I need to install Forms and Reports on each computer so the users can have access to the server. Can anyone please help me on this?

          I need to know if I need to install Forms and Reports on each computer so the users can have access to the server.
          If "each computer" means all clients, then the answer is No, on clients you only need a browser.

          If you mean something else, please clarify.

            Hi Paul and thanks for replying,
            That's exactly what I mean, the clients. We are working locally.
            Can you please explain me the process on how to make my computer access the server with the browser?
            This is a new world for me because I used to work with Forms 6i and now we are in the process to buy the new version, but our directors need to see it working before they make any decision.
            My Oracle Server is a Windows 2008 server, my Oracle version is 11g, Weblogic is 10.3.6, Forms and Reports 11g Release 2

              Then it would be better that you have a look at the documentation.
              Can you please explain me the process on how to make my computer access the server with the browser?
              Once everything is configured and working on the server : (from the documentation)
              For example, assume the Web server is running on port 8888 on a computer called "example.com". 
              
              The user starts the Web browser and goes to a URL such as:
              
              http://example.com:8888/forms/frmservlet?config=myapp

                Hi Paul,
                I have the server setup and working pretty well, my problem is to know how can I make my personal computer connect to the server that I already have working because when I run the browser on the server I am able to connect pretty well, but I don't know how to do it from my computer because I'm using my PC as the client machine.
                The way I connect on my server is using this address:
                http://myserver:port/forms/frmservlet?form=myfolderapplicationroute\form_name.fmx

                So if I do it from any computer, is this what I have to do?
                http://myserver:port/forms/frmservlet?form=\\myfolderapplicationroute\form_name.fmx

                  And did you try the same from other computers ?

                    I did, but is telling me that I'm trying to run a version that is newer than the one I have installed on my computer. Should I unistall Forms 6i from my PC first?
                    One more thing, every time I run any form on my server it gives me a warning saying: This application would like to use an old version of Java (1.6.0_12) that is not installed on your system. We recommend running the application with the latest version of Java on your computer.
                    Name: oracle.forms.engine.Main
                    From: http://myserver:port

                    Is there a way to solve this issue also?
                    The version installed on my server is Java 7 Update 9

                      1. Close all browsers;
                      2. Make sure you are running latest version of Java
                      (check this via Java Control Panel in Windows Control Panel, or, more simply,
                      just download latest version from Java.com);
                      3. Open Java Control Panel (via Windows Control Panel);
                      4. Go to “Java” tab;
                      5. Click on “View” in “Java Applet Runtime
                      Settings” of that tab;
                      6. Uncheck “Enabled” for every version of Java listed
                      EXCEPT for the latest version;
                      7. Click “OK”, etc., and thus close Java
                      Control Panel;
                      8. Restart browser(s);
                      9. Done.
                      I'm trying to run a version that is newer than the one I have installed on my computer. Should I unistall Forms 6i from my PC first?
                      Try uninstalling the old version of Java from your computer

                      You can find the java version of ur computer by
                      opening the command Prompt
                      Execute the command java -version

                      You should get the output as below
                      java version "1.6.0_21"
                      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_21-b51)
                      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 17.0-b17, mixed mode)
                      and then download and install latest version from Java.com

                      Now Download and Install the Latest Version of java from java.com

                      Regards
                      Fabian

                        Hi Fabian and thanks for replying,
                        My Java issue was that I had the wrong one installed and not the Java SE Runtime Environment as you suggested and the client connection was not possible because I needed to create a new firewall rule to allow connections to my Oracle port, so is working pretty well now.
                        Thanks a lot for your help!!
