Webutil has been installed and configured.

It is possible to run the demo form, but trying to access any Webutil function in the form fails and the following error is  thrown:
Oracle.forms.webutil.xxx bean not found. WeBUTIL_xxx will not work
For example:
"oracle.forms.webutil.clientinfo.GetClientInfo bean not found. WEBUTIL_CLIENTINFO.GET_SYSTEM_PROPERTY will not work".
"oracle.forms.webutil.file.FileFunctions bean not found. CLIENT_TEXT_IO.fopen will not work."
"oracle.forms.webutil.host.Host bean not found. WeBUTIL_HOST.Execute will not work"

> The Java console also displays the following:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.forms.webutil.clientInfo.GetClientInfo
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.forms.webutil.file.FileFunctions
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.forms.webutil.host.Host
