Oracle Forms 12c: Install

Oracle Forms 12c: Install
Dec 16, 2015 by Gert Poel

I can go explain the full installation, but to be honest, I followed the guides of ORACLE-BASE.  


These are the guides I followed to install Forms and reports:

  1. Oracle Linux 7 installation
  2. Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) 12cR2 (12.2.1) Installation on Oracle Linux 6 and 7
  3. Oracle Forms and Reports 12c (12.2.1) Installation on Oracle Linux 6 and 7
  4. WebLogic Server 12cR2 (12.2.1) : ADF Application Development Runtime - Repository Configuration Utility (RCU)
  5. Forms and Reports Services 12c (12.2.1) : Create a New Domain


So all credits go to Tim Hall!

After the install I faced two problems when trying http://localhost:9001/forms/frmservlet

The first problem was "Cannot find base HTML file basejpi.htm".  This was solved by putting the full path($ORACLE_HOME/forms/templates/config/basejpi.htm) to the basejpi.htm file in the Web Configuration(default section) of the parameter "baseHTMLjpi".

When trying the test form again, I received the following screen:

The solution to this is to copy the file $ORACLE_HOME/forms/templates/resource/F/frmweb.res to $ORACLE_HOME/forms/ and add frmweb.res to the term parameter in the Web Configuration.
