With the move to using Sun's Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on the client desktop instead of Oracle's Jinitiator for E-Business Suite Release 11i (Release 12 only uses Sun's JRE) some users are reporting intermittent or random problems with maintaining cursor focus when using the mouse whilst, in the main, keyboard navigation works as normal.

The aim of this article is to raise awareness, knowledge and understanding of what have now been commonly termed as "Forms Focus Issues" or "Focus Issues" in E-Business Suite R11i and R12. It will do so by providing information on how to diagnose, analyze, and debug this type of problem.
