Forms 12c Standalone Launcher Unable To Download Jars From Server Through Virtual Host

(Doc ID 2385166.1)

Last updated on APRIL 11, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

OHS has been configured with a rewrite rule that forces the URL http://hostname:port/ to redirect to:
http://hostname:port/forms/frmservlet?config=dev

The URL redirection / rewrite runs successfully when executed through the browser, but fails when executed through the Forms Standalone Application Launcher. For example:

java -jar frmsal.jar -url "http://hostname:port/forms/frmservlet?config=dev" - Is successful.
java -jar frmsal.jar -url "http://hostname:port/" - Fails with FRM-92491

What is causing this failure?
