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)
- 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.
<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.
