Can the Proxy Plugin for Sun One Server Parse Requests For Specific Forms Applications? (Doc ID 560908.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version: 9.0.4.0 to 10.1.2.3.0 - Release: AS10g to AS10gR2
Generic Windows

Goal

Can a rule be defined in the Oracle Proxy Plugin for Sun One Server, which allows requests to be forwarded to individual Forms applications?

For example:
Sun One Server is listening on http://myproxy.com
Oracle HTTP Server is listening on http://myohs.com:7779 as part of a BI and Forms Middle Tier install
A specific Forms application is available at:
http://myohs.com:7779/forms90/f90servlet?config=myform1

The goal is to create a proxy rule in oracle_proxy.conf, that pattern matches against the specific uri,  and only sends requests for 'myform1' to this backend Forms application.

However, a pattern matching rule defined in oracle_proxy.conf as below does not work, and nothing gets forwarded on to HTTP Server:

oproxy.ias1.urlrule=/forms90/f90servlet?config=myform1
