    Unable to run 11g form


      Win: 7 (x64)


      Form Builder:

      Oracle db:

      JRE: 1.6



      I am trying to run a form locally and not able to do so. Not sure where I need to start troubleshooting.

      My Runtime -> Application Server URL is set to: http://RDOGADINLT7.hughes.com:7001/forms/frmservlet

      I am able to start Node Manager. It tells me "Plain socket listener started on port 5556".

      I am able to run startWebLogic.cmd and I get "<Server started in RUNNING mode>".

      I do have "      localhost" added to my host file.


      portlist.ini file:






      default.env file:












      RewriteEngine on

      RewriteRule ^/forms/html/(..*) /workaroundhtml/$1 [PT]

      AliasMatch ^/workaroundhtml/(..*) "C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1/config/FormsComponent/forms/html/$1"

      RewriteRule ^/forms/registry/(..*) /workaroundregistry/$1 [PT]

      AliasMatch ^/workaroundregistry/(..*) "C:/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/ClassicDomain/config/fmwconfig/servers/WLS_FORMS/applications/formsapp_11.1.2/config/forms/registry/$1"


      I did notice that the forms.conf file points at ClassicDomain directory, where the Web Logic server started as "mydomain", that I recently created. Do I need to repoint to mydomain instead?


      When I run a form I get the message below in my IE window:


      Error 404--Not Found

      From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

      10.4.5 404 Not Found

      The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

      If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.


      Can someone help me with this?

      Thanks in advance

          your WLS Admin server and forms deployments are in running status?

            Hi ngsankar,


            Thank you for replying. I was able to start the Web Logic Server by running the startWebLogic.cmd, it shows that it is running and I am able to launch and login to the WLS Admin Console.

            Not sure what you mean under the forms deployments.

            The only things I have currently running are the Node Manager and WLS.

            Is there anything else I need to start?

              ok fine, you said you are trying to open the below url right?



              To open the above url, forms has to deploy and in running status, check is there any deployment with the name forms?

              • 4. Re: Unable to run 11g form

                please Check the weblogic server and oracle forms version compatibility. for example oracle forms version works well with weblogic 10.3.5,Check it if you have version mismatch problem then reinstall the with matched version. cheers!

                  I checked the Deployments in Administration Console and I do not see anything with the name Forms. Should I go ahead and install one? Do you know the name of the file I need to point at when installing?

                  Thank you

                    While researching this topic more I have more questions than answers. It looks like some people use Managed Servers, do I need one for running a form? When I go to mydomain -> Environment -> Servers all I see is AdminServer running on port 7001.

                    I have read that in order for me to create an application and then a servlet for forms I need to work with files like default.env, formsweb.cfg, ftrace.cfg and so on; however default.env file exists only under the ClassicDomain, where I am using mydomain. Do I need to do anything about it?

                    979801, the weblogic version I have is

                      This issue is resolved. I was using the wrong domain that didn't have Forms application setup.
