    forms server and bipublisher server integration.

      hello everyone,

      Please i need to know whether it is possible to configure a managed server for bi publisher with an admin weblogic server server meant for forms eg (ofm pfrd weblogic server)

      i am trying to integrated forms and bi publisher (all of 11g fusion middleware) together and i am confused on how to go about it.

      thanks in anticipation

          Hi AbdurRahman,

          The only way to install Oracle Forms 11g, is to use it's own Fusion Middleware Installer - which generates a "standalone" WebLogic server pre-configured for Oracle forms (and Reports if desired). And there is no way to transfer the Forms Servlet apps to another Basic/Vanilla WebLogic domain.

          To install forms, you'll need to download the installer to create the Form's ORACLE_HOME. Then use the Configuration Wizard ($ORACLE_HOME/bin/config.bat/sh) to create the WebLogic Domain and Servers. You can find the installers here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/forms/downloads/index.html

          Forms Installation Guide: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E38115_01/doc.111210/e23960/overview.htm

          A similar process must be followed for BI Publisher, where you download the necessary Binaries then configure a WebLogic Server based on those binaries.

          BI Publisher Installation Guides: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E14571_01/bi.1111/e10539/toc.htm# and http://www.in-oracle.com/Oracle-DataWarehouse-BI/Oracle-Business-Intelligence/OBIEE/BI-Publisher-11g-installation-linux.php

          As far as integration is concerned, you can still integrate, regardless of whether BI Publisher and Forms run on the same WebLogic Domain or not. So I wouldn't worry there. If you need help, feel free to check out my link below.

          Hope this helps!

          Thank you,
