Errors when Using JRE 1.8 and Webutil to Open a File Browser that Uses the Java JFileChooser class (Doc ID 2506073.1)

Last updated on MAY 10, 2022

Applies to:

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


Since the installation of JRE 8u191 or JRE 8u201, you could receive an error message when trying to upload a document with webutil like:

When the file selection dialog appears, you receive a warning (4 times), that the items referenced by the shortcut cannot be accessed
You only receive this error when you have a broken shortcut on your computer.

Switching the client JRE version back to older versions like JRE 8u181 solves the problem.


 Upgrade JRE version on client PC to JRE 8u191 or JRE 8u201
