Forms 12c: WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT Target WindowName Does Not Work with Webstart (JWS) or Forms Standalone Launcher (FSAL)
Last updated on APRIL 13, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Forms - Version 184.108.40.206.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
See <Note 2066505.1> for an explanation of the different deployment methods offered for in 12c Forms
When using the default plug-in method of running a form - applet running in embedded html page in browser - one can successfully use the web.show_document() target "WindowName" to ensure all web.show_document() calls open the same browser window. For example:
1. web.show_document('https://www.oracle.com/index.html','samewindow'); --This opens up the web page in a new browser window
2. web.show_document('https://apex.oracle.com/en/','samewindow'); --This opens the new web page in the same browser window as #1
This does not work when using the Webstart (JWS) or Forms Standalone Launcher (FSAL) methods of running a form. When using either one of them, the second url is brought up in a new browser window. The web.show_document() target "WindowName" is not working.
Using JWS or FSAL.
