Last updated on MAY 08, 2020

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


  1. Remote users experience delays or timeouts when trying to browse through files to upload when using webutil and JRE 8u191.
  2. Problem did not occur when using 8u181 and only occurs when files are on a network drive.
  3. Problem can be demonstrated with webutil demo and and when the file_filter is set to "null".
  4. Problem is not pronounced if there are very few files in the network drive - 20 or 30.
  5. Webutil file open functionality is based on the java jFilechooser class.  A pure jFilechooser java program shows inconsistent results.


 Upgraded from JRE 8u181 to 8u191.
