Is it Supported to Upgrade the JDK in the ORACLE_HOME of an 11gR1 or 11gR2 Forms & Reports Installation to JDK 1.7.0_XX ? (Doc ID 1554189.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 11.1.1.4.0 to 11.1.2.1.0 [Release 11g]
Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.6.0 to 11.1.2.1.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Currently, upgrading the JDK in the ORACLE_HOME to JDK 1.7 is only supported in the latest 11gR2 Forms and Reports version - 11.1.2.2.  It is not supported with 11.1.2.0 and 11.1.2.1.  It is not supported with any 11gR1 Forms and Reports version at this time which includes 11.1.1.7 or any earlier version.

 By default, the JDK installed in the Forms/Reports ORACLE_HOME is JDK 1.6.  For example, in 11.1.1.7 and 11.1.2.2 this version is 1.6.0_35.

If you upgrade the JDK in the ORACLE_HOME to JDK 1.7 for any version other than 11.1.2.2,  your Forms installation will no longer function.  You will receive FRM-93552 errors.  Notes such as <Note 1345748.1> do not apply since JDK 1.7 does not have libhpi.so.
