Is there an API associated with the camera?

Doesn't the camera start when the PC is turned on? You could either start the camera as boot time, or use a 'bat' file to start the camera and then start the form, or use the api start routine, or maybe webutil's 'client_host' command (I don't think you want this last one).

I believe (I haven't done it) that you can use the API interface (ora_ffi?) to cause an image to be saved in the 'tmp' directory, then you get the Forms application to save it as a 'blob' into the database. Search this forum for 'blob' and see what you find. Many people have asked about storing 'blob' items.
