(Doc ID 1642160.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An application based on ADF is invoked in a popup window by another application. The ADF application has a "cancel" button that closes the child browser window.

Observed behavior
With Internet Explorer versions 8 and 10, if the ADF application is repeatedly loaded as a popup window, it will eventually fail to load, and the browser will report a connection problem.

The Weblogic server log shows the exception:

Expected behavior
It is expected that the ADF application should operate reliably within a window launched by another application.


 The problem only occurs on Internet Explorer versions 8 and 10.
