Good morning ..

we are using oracle application server forms & reports services standalone release : 10.1.0.4.2,
developer suite 10g release 10.1.0.4.2
and database 10g release 10.2.0.1.0.

We can use the imp/exp utilities in our application to imp/exp certain data (specified in the form
built with forms builder) to dump files when connecting using oracle developer.
These dumps are sometimes needed & used later.

I was wondering if we can call these utilities through the application server
knowing that the bin of the app server doesn't contain these excutables (ie. imp.exe,exp.exe)
We tried copying them into the bin folder but calling them through a form didn't work & doesn't seem
to call the executables though their full path is specified in the form.

Is there a way to do it , imp/exp data through the application server?

Thanks in advance

These should be available in INFRA_HOME/bin.
If you are talking about exporting metadata from IASDB, I would
rather stick with built-in functionality like the one you have mentioned.
OAS has specific scripts to copy/move metadata.

That I have no Idea.
Forms/Reports folks could help exactly.
A quick search in Google for "calling OS commands from FORMS"
could give a headstart.

How did you do that? Did you use HOST built-in? Where did you put the DMP file? Was it accessible?
