Ho hum, here I go again. Now at our esteemed University we are looking to have Windows Vista as our desktop environment. Oracle have kindly released a database version that works ok on Vista but I've not found an updated version of the Developer suite. This to me is a bit unusual as surely it will be the Developer suite that would be used more on the desktop systems than would be the database itself. I've tried installing the latest developer suite but I get an error telling me that the O/S version is 6 and developer needs 5xx etc. I tried using the compatibility mode in Vista but that doesn't work either. I've posted a request on the Oracle forums and although its been viewed several times no one has answered. Am I missing something? Can anyone help?

OK, I've got it all working including running the forms in IE7.
I set the machines pagefile to manual setting and put something similar to what the system recommended.

I ran the Developer suite setup.exe file in compatibility mode and checked the run as administrator option. onnce installed I ran a test form and then found that Firefox would run the form I created but IE wouldn't. I installed the latest Java (1.6) from the Sun site and then copied/pasted the jvm.dll file from the new install to Program Files\Oracle\Jinitiator 1.3.1.22\bin\hotspot after renaming the original jvm.dll file so's I didn't lose it. Anyway, everything seems to work now and I'm posting this message to give my findings to others in a similar position.Hope it helps, ta,
Phil.

If I'm correct is the Oracle Jinitiator software not compatible with Windows Vista. You can change your iAS/iDS (formsweb.cfg) so it makes use of the SUN Java plugin (jpi). So the java plugin will be downloaded to your file system in stead of the oracle jinitiator.

Thanks Phil. I just followed everything you said here and I was able to install Dev10g on Vista. I was able to run a Form in Firefox. However, with Reports, I encountered a problem. I was able to run a Report on "paper layout" but not on "web layout". The error mesg was "ERROR: Failed to locate the browser. Try connecting again...", even if a new window of Firefox was opened by the Report. Do you have an idea why this error occurred?

Have you solved your problem?

Is the default location for the browser specified somewhere in the report server definiton?

Is firefox your default browser?

Not yet.

Actually, I'm kinda new at this. I've used DevSuite 6i before in a client/server setting. This is my first time to try DevSuite 10g. Where do I find the report server definition? Is it a flat file which can be modified manually?

>Is firefox your default browser?
Yes.

Have a look at http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/229682/67467/?srch=forms.conf#msg_229682 I know it is long and not completely on topic but there are bits and pieces in there that may help you.

Get back to us with how you are progressing.

Hi David,

I followed the links you suggested, and got some bits and pieces of info as you have mentioned.

I also followed your suggestion there to use
web.show_document


So, now I have a Form with a button that calls a Report. When that button is pressed, a new browser window is opened, and an error message appears on the page:

REP-52005: The specified key scott/tiger@devt does not exist in key map file.

Any suggestions on how solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Please post your code.

I assume that you have access to scott/tiger in the 'devt' database and that you have proved this by using SQL*Plus and also Oracle Forms. Please confirm.

Yes, I have access to scott/tiger@devt.

I continued to read further on orafaq and found out that I can conceal the connection string from the URL by using the key map file (cgicmd.dat)

And so, I modified the key map file, I added this line:

myconn: scott/tiger@devt


I modified my code to include the myconn key. My code for calling the report is now this:

PROCEDURE test_report IS
   v_repid               report_object;
   v_rep                 VARCHAR2 (100);
   v_show_document       VARCHAR2 (2000) := '/reports/rwservlet?';
   v_connect             VARCHAR2 (30);  
BEGIN
   v_connect := 'myconn';
   IF GET_APPLICATION_PROPERTY (user_interface) = 'WEB'
   THEN
      v_show_document := v_show_document
         || 'report=emp'
         || '&userid='
         || v_connect
         || '&destype=CACHE'
         || '&desformat=PDF';         
      web.show_document (v_show_document);
   ELSE
      v_repid := FIND_REPORT_OBJECT ('emp');
      v_rep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT (v_repid);
      web.show_document
                (   'http://address:port/reports/rwservlet/getjobid'
                 || SUBSTR (v_rep, INSTR (v_rep, '_', -1) + 1)
                 || '?'
                 || 'server=mylocalrepsrvr',
                 '_blank'
                );
   END IF;
END;


The above code is called from a button in the Form that I created. When I click that button, another tab opens up in Firefox.

The tab's name is OracleAS Reports Services - Servlet, and this error is displayed on that page:

REP-51002: Bind to Reports Server mylocalrepsrvr failed

The URL displayed on that page is:

http://127.0.0.1:8889/reports/rwservlet?report=emp&userid=myconn&destype=CACHE&desformat=PDF


mylocalrepsrvr is supposed to be my report server. I am running the AS, the database, Form Builder and Report Builder on one machine. From this setup, how do I know that the report server is up and running? Is the report server down that is why I get the REP-51002 error?

Any suggestions/comments?

Thanks again!

Try changing the '8889' to '8888' and see what happens.

I recommend NOT running the AS on your PC, just use the DS.

Aaargh. I can't get this to install either. I've changed the setup file to run as administrator and changed to compatibility mode to windows xp sp2 and it gets a little further, but says that there is no swap space and does not continue.

My immediate answer is 'then create some swap space'. I assume that you have some swap space but it either can't or won't use it. Have you defined the environment variables 'tmp' and 'temp' and assigned them to an area to which you have write access?

hi David
what abt installing DS 10g on 64Bit System AMD which specifically design for Window Vista.I think 32Bit version can't support 64bit beside 64bit system can support 32 bit.
