    Can you explain this better? Forms 10g is a web deployment. So, how are you making it run without Application Server?

    Webutil can be deployed only on AS.(10g).

    Cheers,

    Webutil is not a "product". it is an add-on set of java beans for a Forms application that you design. So, "WebUtil" cannot run on its own. It must be built into a form, which means you must have an Application Server installation hosting Oracle Forms.

    Regarding the next part of your statement, the use of OLE to access Excel, Webutil really has little to do with accessing Microsoft Excel. WebUtil just gives you a way to talk the component that does all the work of accessing the info via OLE. That component is Jacob. Jacob is not an Oracle product. It is part of an open source project intended to help java developers perform OLE functionality from their java applications. So, if you don't want to use Forms to access your Excel data, you can write your own java app and integrate Jacob into it. How to do this is not a discussion for this forum. Refer to the Jacob Open Source Project pages for more information on how it works:
