    Oracle Forms (and Reports) uses Oracle Net (aka SqlNet) to connect to the database. Therefore, you configure connectivity similarly to how you would configure most Oracle DB clients; in tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora. In the case of Forms/Reports 12, a sqlnet.ora is not included so if you need one (depending on our configuration desires) simple create/add one to the same directory where you find tnsnames.ora

    Refer to the DB documentation for information on how to configure the use of a wallet with DB clients.

    In the future, please ensure that you include complete product and version numbers so we can be certain to provide accurate and helpful responses. References like "19c", "12c", "11g" are a portion of a product name and not their version. Often these references can include many actual versions, which is the case for Forms/Reports 12c
