Hello Jan Willem,
The Oracle Designer Headstart forum is archived, so posting on that forum is no longer possible.
Which version of Headstart 6.5i do you have? Can you tell me the technical number, something like 6.5.4..0.1?
Oracle Headstart is a product of Oracle Consulting from the Netherlands. Maybe someone of Oracle Consulting can tell you whether there is a version of Headstart which can run with Forms 11.
Also can you tell me the exact message you get when connecting to the Oracle Forms 11. Is this the same message you get message when connecting with IE 10 and JRE 1.7 to Oracle Forms 10?
the problem has been fixed...
1) I tried to migrate the forms to 11g, but that can not be done with headstart... The fmb/pll files should be kept on 10g.
2) The migration documentation is not complete: webutil has been installed completely (in other words, webutil is not migrated)
So, steps are:
1) Install webutil
2) Recompile all libraries (including headstart and webutil)
3) Recompile all menus
4) Recompile all forms
Then the Forms application works again.
Java 7 update 21 is very dramatic. The "vendor" work-around can not be used anymore, like with previous Java 7 versions... It is unbelievable how amateuristic Oracle deals with Java. For me, Java in the client is dead as long as Oracle has the controls. So, the end of Forms is very near. If you are also looking for alternatives, check theformspider.com.
Thanks for your help.
Best regards, Jan Willem Vermeer
