CLIENT_HOST functionality does not work with JRE 8_231 and above (Doc ID 2689547.1)

Last updated on JULY 17, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 12.2.1.4.0 to 12.2.1.4.0 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A webutil enabled form is being run with webstart. The CLIENT_HOST functionality is being used to create a file. The code includes escaped double quotes as in the following piece of code:

----------------------
BEGIN
client_host('cmd /c "echo \"Hello World\" >> c:\test\hello.txt"',NO_SCREEN);
END;
----------------------

This works when using JRE 8_221 on the client but when using JRE 8_231 or above the file is not created.

Changes

 Upgrade from JRE 8_221 to JRE 8_231
