Symptoms

Followed <Note 290807.1> "Deploying Sun JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i" to prepare environment to use the Sun JRE instead or JInitiator to run the Forms applet on the client PC. On the client the Sun JRE 1.6.0_10 or higher is used.

After selecting a responsibility in the Personal Home Page the second browser window starts as expected but the Forms applet is not rendered.

The Java Console shows:

Java Plug-in 1.6.0_11
Using JRE version 1.6.0_11 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = C:\Documents and Settings\<username>
----------------------------------------------------
c:   clear console window
f:   finalize objects on finalization queue
g:   garbage collect
h:   display this help message
l:   dump classloader list
m:   print memory usage
o:   trigger logging
q:   hide console
r:   reload policy configuration
s:   dump system and deployment properties
t:   dump thread list
v:   dump thread stack
x:   clear classloader cache
0-5: set trace level to <n>
----------------------------------------------------

The access_log shows the following entries indication that not all Forms JAR files are downloaded.

Starting Form direct using  /dev60cgi/f60cgi in the URL starts the Forms applet as expected. The problem only occurs when starting Forms from the Personal Home Page.
