Java.exe Process Continues when Browser is Closed before Closing Opened Forms (Doc ID 1927373.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 04, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This occurs when using a multi-Form application which normally involves opening one or more additional Forms using OPEN_FORM() or CALL_FORM().

If the browser is closed before the Forms application is closed gracefully, a java.exe process will remain active on the client machine.  This can cause problems when trying to open the browser again.

This issue occurs more frequently when the JRE parameter "separate_jvm=true" is used.  See <Note 1384332.1>  How to Configure the Forms JRE to Run in Its Own JVM Instance.

This behavior has been seen with JRE versions as recent as JRE 1.7.0_55.
