Have you thought about running in a browser window without the decorations?
runWindow = window.open(URL,'WINDOWNAME'+(Math.round(Now.getTime()/1000)),'scrollbars,menubar=0,resizable=1,location=0,toolbar=0,height=689,width=931');
The URL is a variable defined elsewhere in the script, the time is added to the window name to allow users to open more than one session, otherwise the first window opened would get hijacked by subsequent sessions being opened.
This method is at least supported, unlike java web start.
You should be using JRE as well as Jinitiator stopped being supported years ago.
I like the idea of running the oracle forms client without the browser alltogether as the Internet exlorer usually uses up a lot of memory (especially if you are running citrix with 100s of users, each one running their own instance..).
Took me a while to find this ExeJAR tool, it is either quite new or not commonly used (Max missed to provide a link...), finally found it:
All our clients are hooked up via a VPN (or Citrix), and we are having all sorts of troubles with Browser Versions, Browser Types, java versions, jinitiator versions, ... This seems like it might just solve all these user experience issues.
I will do some testing and give you an update
(I might try wrapping the jar to an .exe with bundled JRE --> Max mentioned Launch4j, anyone tried that yet?)
We have control over our installed base and can ensure the browser and java version being used, so we have few worries on that front.
