JPI_DOWNLOAD_PAGE Parameter Is Ignored When Using FireFox Version 20 or higher.
Last updated on MARCH 05, 2015
Applies to:Oracle Forms - Version 11.0.0 to 126.96.36.199.0 [Release 11.0.0 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After configuring the applet parameter JPI_DOWNLOAD_PAGE (in formsweb.cfg file), using the browser FireFox to run an Oracle Form, the new JRE version listed does not get downloaded and installed automatically. If the same URL is used with Internet Explorer, this works fine. That is the JRE is downloaded, installed and the Form is run.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Define the JPI_DOWLOAD_PAGE to point to a newer JRE version than is installed on the client
The file formsweb.cfg is amended so that the parameter JPI_DOWLOAD_PAGE is set to point to the download URL for a new JRE versin.
