How to configure Oracle Forms Standalone Launcher – FSAL

Quick Guide to Oracle Forms Standalone Launcher - FSAL

Today I would like to highlight 2 new runtime options to start your application. Oracle definitely looked ahead towards the future with new operating system issues e.g. new browsers and their new behavior in Windows 10.

The Oracle Forms Stand-alone Application Launcher (FSAL) offers an alternative way for end-users to run Oracle Forms applications. FSAL offers a browser-less, more client/server-like interface. As a result of not using a browser, FSAL does not use the Java Plugin component of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Developer Kit (JDK). All that is required to run FSAL on the end-user machine is a Java installation. This can be either the JDK or the JRE. To determine which Java versions are supported, please contact your administrator.”

Starting from the fsal.htm you can load the associated frmsal.jar to the client.

So quite simply, this method even works without a browser! But again with JDK or JRE on the client machine.

Sample Call in a command box:java -jar C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home\forms\java\frmsal.jar -url “http://w7x6412c-rdbms:9001/forms/frmservlet?config=daylightstandaloneapp&form=lab_540&userid=

Conclusion
We see that the classic way to start a Forms module still works. But with the discontinuation of java plug-in support in recent bowsers, Oracle was forced to react and to break new ground. Keep it up!

In addition if you want to run Forms without an applet at all from HTML or mobile apps you can checkout AuraPlayer for more details.
