    Check the doc: How to Configure Webutil in Forms 11g (Doc ID 1093985.1).


    We migrated from 10g to 11g using the same document.

    For Webutil & JACOB


    • The webutil configuration section has been modified to suite your environment.
    • The following entries exist in the config section :- WebUtilArchive=frmwebutil.jar,jacob.jar
    • The following Jar files exists and are added to FORMS_BUILDER_CLASSPATH:

    /forms/java/frmall.jar;/forms/java/frmwebutil.jar; /forms/java/jacob.jar

    • The following jar file added to the CLASSPATH in forms/server/default.env:
    • You must generated the certification key using the utility and placed it in appropriate folders.
    • WebUtil needs a single virtual directory to be defined in order to operate.

    This virtual directory is used to locate various operating system-specific files that WebUtil may need to download.

    For an Oracle Developer Suite installation,

    add the following line to the file/forms/formsweb/orion-web.xml under the OAS Oracle Home:

    <virtual-directory virtual-path="/webutil" real-path="<ORACLE_HOME>/forms/webutil" />


    For GetClientInfo to work

    • Remove GetClientInfo from Restricted URL Parameters  in your forms configuration section.
