Oracle Forms and Java Web Start

user628033 Member Posts: 8 Blue Ribbon

We are getting the "Oracle Fusion Middleware" image as our splashscreen and background. In the jnlp file we have:

<param name="splashscreen" value="no">

<param name="background" value="no">

<param name="logo" value="no">

We also have all the above values set to no in the formsweb.cfg file on the forms web server.

When not running through Java Web Start but using Internet Explorer to launch the applet, we do not get "Oracle Fusion Middleware" image. Ideas?

    If in "the" jnlp file (I will assume you mean base.jnlp) you add parameters and hard-coded values then values you enter in the Web Configuration (formsweb.cfg) will not be used. However, if you also set them (to "no") in the Web Config as you stated then that will cause your applet (IE11) to use those values.

    Regarding the jnlp changes you made, exactly which file(s) did you alter and from where did you make the change? Meaning, did you make the changes in Notepad, etc? Changes of any managed config file MUST be done from within Fusion Middleware Control and not directly in a text editor.

    Finally, if you added your entries to the jnlp file and the parameters in question are already listed, you must either put your value in place of the variable provided or comment out the line. Having duplicate lines may cause the parameter to be ignored or the wrong value to be used. For example:

    <!--   <param name="splashScreen" value="%splashScreen%"/> -->
           <param name="splashScreen" value="no"/>
