Just in from Mark Bobak on the Oracle-L list server: a warning for the people who have to deal with the client environment for their eBS systems. (It’s likely that the relevant person in your organization has already received this message direct from Oracle Corp., but there’s no harm in double-checking.)


  1. Thanks Jonathan. I guess this will apply equally to all Forms based applications not just eBS.

    • Kevin,

      Good point – that looks like a reasonable assumption given this phrase “Oracle Forms is not compatible with Java 7”, although it’s then a little odd that the subsequent content of the article seems to downplay, or even ignore, the relevance of Forms itself.

  2. eBS will probably get a FRM-92095 just like Forms.
    This is because some genius at Oracle thought it was necessary to change the vendor string from ‘Sun Microsystems Inc’ to ‘Oracle Corporation’ – unfortunately Forms checks this string to know if it is running Jinitiator or the Java Plugin.
    There are some workarounds as explained here :
