Thanks Mark.

We have contacted Steven Chan through our management in the past and his answer was, which is also Oracle's official answer, that jintiator is not and will not be certified for Vista. So officially, only Sun's JRE plug-in is certified with Vista and currently only build 12 and 13 are certified.

The problem is that if a desktop has a higher version of JRE installed than what the apps is configured with then regardless of what JRE the apps is configured with, it (apps) will fire up that (higher) version for forms access. Oracle has provided a workaround where an entry can be added to the registry to enable static versioning but this is not a feasible solution from deployment standpoint for a large and widespread user-base. Ideally, Oracle apps should recognize and execute the same JRE version that it is configured with, like jinitiator, but that is not the case.

I was wondering how other Oracle clients with large user-base are addressing this issue.

I think this is valid tech content, and besides I have a short answer from Ahmed Alomari, formerly or Oracle, and now a key member of both and

Vista is supported if you use the Sun native Plug-in. JInitiator can be made to work, but it is not officially certified. I am running 1.1.8 and
1.3 JInitiator on my Vista system and I can access EBiz systems without issue.

Refer to the URL for Vista
(Ebiz) notes.

The only thing I would add is to check whether your client side has reached a release that is certified to no longer require jinitiator such that it will work correctly with the Sun native plug-in. I'm pretty sure that is covered in the schan blogs, but I'm not sure whether it is in the particular note Ahmed referenced.

Are there folks who are running Oracle EBS Applications with jinitiator on the Windows XP client and planning to migrate to Microsoft Vista OS? Can you please contact me offline? We are currently analyzing migration to Vista and finding out limitations from the Oracle side and would like to know how other Oracle customers are addressing these limitations.
