    Hope to implement Resource Access Descriptors RAD's in 11g Forms/Reports


      Did anyone find the answer to implementing Resource Access Descriptors RAD's in 11g forms and reports? It would appear the OAM doesn't offer the same functionality as 10g OSSO, and our application expolits RAD's for role based authentication, and exploits Windows Native Authentication. Any help or pointers would be very much appreciated.


      In Advance Thanks!

          Given that you apparently already found a MOS note (1475601.1) which explains how to create RADs, I don't think I understand your question or if there is one.

          Version 10 and 11 have basically the same requirements. If you want to use an sso solution, OID must include a RAD. The RAD stores the db specific details needed for the Forms runtime to be able to connect to the database. The difference between 10 and 11 is that in 10, RADs were created with the assistance of DAS. In 11, because DAS does not exist in OAM, a new servlet was created to provide the ability to create RAD on demand. Unfortunately, this only solved half of the problem. To manually create RADs you need to either follow the note you already mentioned or MOS note 1390533.1, which is similar to the one you found except explains how to create Default RADs.
