Where To Set Environment Variables For Forms On The WEB? (Doc ID 266725.1)

Last updated on APRIL 21, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 6.0.8 to 11.1.2.0.0 [Release 6.0.8 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

For an Oracle Forms application deployed in client-server mode or over the web (using Forms Server) environment variables such as FORMSxx_PATH are set:

- in the operating system registry (MS Windows)
or
- in a shell script / at the command line on Unix platforms ( Linux, Solaris, HP, AIX etc)

The Forms Listener Servlet architecture, introduced in Forms 6i patchset 4a and higher versions, has a different method of locating relevant environment variables. What is this method?

Important Note: In Forms 6i configuring the Forms Listener Servlet is a manual and optional process.
Refer to:
<Note:247136.1> Forms 6i Listener Servlet For Web Deployment of Forms in Oracle 9iAS Rel 1

For Forms 9.x or higher in all cases the Forms Listener Servlet architecture will be used.
