Windows and Android certified

Chrome 35 is certified for web-based content with Oracle EBS 12.2.4 and 12.1.3 on the following platforms:

  • Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Android 4.1 and higher

Java / Forms not supported

This certification covers web-based (OA Framework / HTML) E-Business Suite product modules only. 

Google is expected to phase out Chrome's support for Java "before the end of 2014."  Once that occurs, Forms / Java-based EBS product modules and applets will not be compatible with Google Chrome.  

For details about Chrome's upcoming inability to run Java, see:

You can contact Google directly if you have questions about their plans for Google Chrome.

 

Support implications of Google Chrome's rapid release cycle

In 2011, Mozilla switched Firefox to a rapid release cycle with a new release coming out every six weeks.  Most enterprises (including Oracle) can't keep up with that deployment rate, so we switched our E-Business Suite + Firefox certification track to Mozilla'sExtended Support Release (ESR) channel. Mozilla's ESR releases come out every 12 months.

Chrome is also released on a rapid release cycle.  Chrome updates average out to a new release every six to eight weeks. Google does not offer an equivalent of Mozilla's annually-updated ESR option for Chrome. 

Oracle is unable to test every new version of Chrome with every EBS release every eight weeks. We expected that we will certify selected Chrome releases on an ongoing basis.

We are also unable to test Chrome on all Android versions on all Android devices.  We primarily test Chrome on Samsung and Nexus devices running Android 4.1 and higher.

If you report an issue with a later version of Chrome that we have not documented, you may be advised to:

  • Use IE or Firefox as a backup browser (Windows clients)
  • Wait for the next version of Chrome (Android clients)
  • Consult with your device vendor (e.g. for issues that cannot be reproduced on Samsung or Nexus devices)

Pending certifications 

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates.  Customers can monitor or subscribe to this blog.  Updates will be posted as soon as soon as they're available.

    Hi Steven,

    Is Oracle addressed for the typical forms error(FRM-92120 Registry file http://url/forms/oracle/registry/registry.dat is missing) when try to launch forms in Chrome?

    Thanks,

    Moshe.

    Hi, Moshe,

    See the section in the article above: "Java/Forms not supported."

    You're welcome to raise your concerns about Google's lack of Java support to Google directly.

    Regards,

    If you want to run Oracle EBS on Chrome 48+ (on new versions 2016+, without NPAPI), you can use a new extension available in the Chrome WebStore:

    It's a shame that Oracle Cannot support on Chrome. Where can find the Google Chrome version 35?

    Thanks

    Thameera,

    This is a very old article published in 2014, and Chrome has now at version 56. You can obtain that at Google's Chrome site. As with prior versions, this version will continue to work with E-Business Suite OAF/HTML content.
