          From Oracle® Fusion Middleware :



          4.7.3.1 Storing Icons in a Java Archive File

           

          If an application uses a lot of custom icon images, it is recommended you store icons in a Java archive file and set the imageBase value to codebase. The icon files can be zipped to a Java archive using the Jar command of any Java Software Development Kit (Java SDK).

           

          For example, the command jar -cvf myico.jar *.gif packages all files with the extension .gif into an archive file with the name myico.jar.

           

          In order for Oracle Forms to access the icon files stored in this archive, the archive must be stored into the forms/java directory. Also, the name of the archive file must be part of the archive tag used in the custom application section of the formsweb.cfg file. Now, when the initial application starts, the icon files are downloaded and permanently stored on the client until the archive file is changed.
