          First, archive.jini is not a valid parameter. I can only assume you derived this from an Oracle Forms environment where "jini" refers to Jinitiator. The correct syntax, assuming Oracle Forms is "archive_jini". To be clear for all the java folks reading this, archive_jini is used in the Forms configuration to represent the typical "archive" parameter used by an applet.

          As for how many jars can be referenced in this parameter, likely there is no documented limit even if technically there is one. The only places I can think of where you might be stopped by limitations which are not related to the internal workings of Java (the JRE) are:

          1. The html limiation on how large an attribute or parameter value can be. I believe that for HTML 4, the limit is around 64k Details [url http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/sgml/sgmldecl.html]here

          2. The JRE cache size is not configured large enough to accomodate a large number of jars. The max size can be set on the JRE Control Panel. Details [url http://www.java.com/en/download/help/plugin_cache.xml]here

          Finally, I would not recommend having too many jars included in your list as this will degrade application startup time.
