Using and Securing Forms Standalone Launcher (FSAL)

Alexandra David
Principal Technical Support Engineer

The Forms Standalone Launcher (FSAL) offers an alternative way for end-users to run Oracle Forms 12c applications. FSAL provides a browser-less, modern client/server-like interface. As a result of not using a browser, FSAL does not rely on the Java Deployment technologies (e.g. Plug-in, Web Start, etc) and therefore is not dependent on a browser.
However, it does require Java on the end-user machine.

A new paper has been released containing basic usage information for the Forms Standalone Launcher.
