Sun Java Plug-in 1.6.0_10 Certified with the E-Business Suite

Regular readers know that you're now free to use whatever version of the native Sun Java plug-in with the E-Business Suite as long as you meet certain minimum requirements.  Nonetheless, the latest Sun JRE is a bit of a new animal, so my team performed an explicit set of certification tests to ensure that it's as compatible as previous releases.

Based on those latest test, we've confirmed that the latest Sun Java Runtime Engine (JRE) native plug-in release 6u10 (JRE 1.6.0_10) is compatible with both Oracle Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 on Windows-based desktop clients.

mzFormsArch:

Prerequisites

This is the first release from Sun to incorporate the 'Next Generation Java Plug-in' architecture.  This architecture can be used with all previous JRE plug-in releases, and provides an option to continue use of the 'classic' java plug-in architecture if required.

The new architecture is supported on:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 6 and later on Windows XP and Windows Vista desktop clients

JRE 6u10 can be used with Firefox 2.0, however it will not use the new architecture and will simply default to the 'classic' java plug-in by default even with the new architecture turned on.

Note:  JRE 6u10 is also compatible with Firefox 3.0.  However, we're still working on our certification of the E-Business Suite with Firefox 3 right now.  Some bugs have been identified that require some OA Framework layer patches, which we're testing now.  I don't have firm schedules for our Firefox 3 certification yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available. 

Which JRE Versions Are Certified With Which Browsers?

This depends on your Windows operating version and the browser that your firm has deployed. Various combinations of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 6 and 7, and Firefox are now certified with JRE 1.5 and 1.6. To review the new minimum certification levels, see:

We are not able to open multiple Jinitiator based forms on Firefox 3.0 of Oracle eBS 11.5.10.2, while it works fine with Internet Explorer.

Are there any settings which require to be configured ?
I have not tested it on Firefox 2.0 but does it support opening of multiple forms like IE?

Hi, Pankaj,

We're working through a number of compatibility issues with Firefox 3 and EBS right now. Our OA Framework team has provided us with a few patches which we're testing.

Until we've released those patches, I'd recommend on sticking with Firefox 2 for the time being.

I don't have a firm schedule for this certification yet. You're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as possible.

Regards,
Steven

Hi, Pankaj,

One of my team members looked into this.
We verified that this works with Firefox 3.0.3 and JRE 1.6.0_10.

You can enable this feature from the Forms Navigator Menu by unchecking the option Tools -> Close Other Forms.

That said, we still recommend waiting for our certification before using Firefox 3 with EBS, since you'll need some OA Framework patches from us for full compatibility with this latest browser.

Regards,
Steven

Hi Steven

I'm glad to hear this. As I expect EBS to be based on the current Forms 10.1.2.3, I hope this means, that this plugin can now be considered fully certified for 10.1.2.3.

However, I'd like to ask you regard 2 critical issues I've found with 1.6.0_10. See Metalink bugs

7396079 RENDERING OF WINDOW IS 'PAINFULLY' SLOW WHEN USING JRE 1.6.0_10

7485019 SUN JRE 1.6.0_10 RC2 : RESIZING THE FORMS APPLET WINDOW HANGS THE FORMS SESSION

Both these bugs are specific to 1.6.0_10, ie. they do not reproduce with any earlier JRE version. 7396079 has a workaround, which involves disabling the new Direct3D accelleration, which is broken with Forms, since Forms renders its windows with XOR rendering, see this Sun bug:

http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6635462

However, bug 7485019, which apparently only is encountered with separateFrame=true, does not seem to have any workaround. This bug is currently preventing us from upgrading to 1.6.0_10. I reported this bug and have had it escalated, but so far, Development have not given any info, whether this is a Forms bug or a JRE bug, and has not given any schedule for a fix.

Are you aware of these 2 issues with 1.6.0_10, and do you have any further information regarding an upcoming fix/workaround to bug 7485019?

Hope you can help us by providing some more information, since you appear to have been testing 1.6.0_10 in-depth with the latest version of Forms.

Thanks in advance,
Jacob Madsen

Hi, Jacob,

Both Sun and Oracle Forms Development are aware of bug 7396079. Sun has indicated that this will be resolved in a future release of the JRE (but not in 1.6.0_10 itself).

Bug 7485019 is in the Oracle Forms Development team's queue right now. They haven't posted any substantive comments yet.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on November 17, 2008 at 04:13 AM PST #

Hi, Jacob,

We have testing 1.6.0_10 with the E-Business Suite and have not encountered this issue so far. That doesn't mean that the problem report is invalid, of course, but the fault appears to trigger in specific conditions which may not occur in the course of our usual testing.

It's taken a bit of time for our Forms team to reproduce this issue reliably. They just managed to reproduce this issue today, Nov. 24.

They're tracking your SR as well as bug 7485019, which is now escalated. They're working on a standalone testcase of EWT to reproduce this issue now.

I am tracking this closely to see whether there are any implications for E-Business customers using this JRE version. I will ensure that my team updates the base EBS recommendations for using this JRE release with new guidance, as needed. Feel free to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as possible.

Regards,
Steven

Hi Steven

FYI: Sun has acknowledged Oracle bug 7485019 as a problem in the JDK. Sun bug 6784816 has been logged on this issue.

See http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6784816

For the technical details on this issue, see this Sun forum thread:

http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=318793

I hope you will do what you can to get Sun to fix this issue ASAP, hopefully to be included in the upcoming JRE 1.6.0_12 update, since this problem is currently a major showstopper for us, since a component we made for Forms can't be deployed correctly on Vista on JRE's less than 1.6.0_10.

Thanks in advance,
Jacob

Hi Steven,

I'm getting some push back from ATG support for asking questions related to JRE 1.6u7. They are suggesting these questions would be better answered by Sun. We pay Oracle to support us. Are you saying we now need to pay Sun to support us as well?

For example, most recently I was testing the case when JRE 1.6u7 (which we will deploy February 2009) and 1.6u10 are on the same client. A pop up occurs which states, "The application requires an earlier version of Java" and provides two buttons "Run" and "Cancel". I would like to make that pop up invisible to my users.

ATG responded that we should uncheck the update tab box that permits Java from launching a scheduled automatic update. But this does nothing for the other 2 situations: Application downloads update or user downloads update. It only stops Java itself from downloading newer updates. We are still talking, so this is a snapshot of the conversation thus far.

We are using static versioning based on 1.6u7, with Oracle Applications 11.5.10.2.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Steven,

I plan to deploy Sun JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in our Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.(11.5.10.2)

Hi, Kevin,

I hear you -- multivendor support discussions are a reality in our operating environment, and they can be frustrating to work through.

There's a fine line that we try to walk here. On the one hand, it's a requirement that people use other vendors' products with EBS. For example, someone will be running the Sun JRE within Internet Explorer on Windows XP on a Dell Latitude.

Oracle Support will do their best to isolate EBS problems to the root cause. If those problems are found to exist in an Oracle component (e.g. the Oracle database or EBS itself), we can work on providing you with a fix.

However, this doesn't mean that Oracle can provide a carte blanche commitment to fix all problems with other vendors' products used in the process of accessing EBS. Advanced support for those products may be needed from those vendors themselves.

Back when we released our own Oracle JInitiator product (the predecessor to our use of Sun's JRE), Oracle had complete control over how that Java client worked. Our move away from Oracle's proprietary client to open standards means that Oracle no longer controls all aspects of the user experience.

The Sun Microsystems is responsible for providing support for their Java Runtime Engine. Oracle doesn't have any control over the behaviour of this particular popup, since all of this happens within the JRE itself and not Oracle software. If you'd like the JRE's fundamental behaviour to be changed, that may require a code change that only Sun can provide.

Regards,
Steven

Hi, Jacob,

Our Forms team has escalated this with Sun. Key staff from Oracle Forms and Sun Java are now meeting weekly on this issue.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on December 16, 2008 at 06:51 AM PST #

Hi, Thiru,

As noted in the article above, you can use any version of the Sun JRE above the minimum levels specified in the Notes for each of the respective JRE and EBS codelines. You no longer need to wait for an explicit certification statement from us in Oracle E-Business Suite Development if you're above that minimum JRE level.

For example, the R12 Note shows that you can use JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher. Since 1.6.0_11 is higher that 1.6.0_03, you're free to use the later release whenever you wish.

Regards,
Steven

Thanks Steven,

I deployed Sun JRE (Native Plug-in 1.6.0_11) for Windows Clients in our Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.(11.5.10.2).

After this the Java Console is showing this (I have cut and pasted the error section only)

Then I deployed 1.6.0_10 on another instance. Here also the same problem. But the Forms based applictions are working fine,

Should I raise SR for this issue? Plz advice.

Posted by Thiru on December 16, 2008 at 07:48 PM PST #

Hello Thiru,

The issue sounds similar to one already reported after applying Forms Patchset 19, which is fixed by patch 7156414 However patch 7156414 is listed as one of the required patches in Note 125767.1 so you may already have applied it.

If you are not on Forms patchset 19 or have already applied 7156414, then I would suggest you do raise a Service Request for your specific issue to be investigated

Hope this helps

Mike

Posted by Mike Shaw on December 17, 2008 at 03:39 PM PST #

Hi Mike,

I upgraded to Developer 6i Patchset 19 and also applied patch 7156414 as mentioned in that note.

Just wondering if its a SUN JRE issue or Forms Issue.

Ok . I will raise SR to resolve the issue.

Thanks
Thiru

Posted by Thiru on December 19, 2008 at 04:15 PM PST #

Hi Mike,

I raised SR and I was asked to apply patch 6327405 which delivered FormsMouseWheelHandler.class which was missing earlier.

I suggest Oracle development include applying this patch in Note:125767.1 or in Note:290807.1.

Hi,
After Deploying Sun JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i in our Test Instance, we find that there is general slowness in loading Oracle Forms compared to the Jinitiator.
Also PDF reports are opening in a minimized fashion in Browser..

We have ensured that Browser and OS compatibilities are as recommended in Note 290807.1

Do I need to do any further configuration?
Rgds,
Thiru

Posted by Thiru on December 22, 2008 at 09:18 PM PST #

Hello Thiru,

There is no specific tuning and is not expected that Native JRE would be significantly slower than JInitiator, so will need to analyse the specifics of your case. The best way to do this is for you to raise a Service Request.

I would suggest you create a test case and take specific timings, repeat it two or three times with Native JRE to ensure it is consistant, then also do a couple of testcase iterations with Jinitiator as well. Then raise Service request with this data for us to take a look at.

regards

Mike

Hi,

Our users are ok with the performance.

Actually our problem now is if we open any concurrent requests in PDF then the new browser window opens but is minimized.

This also happens when we open any HTML based program like Oracle Applications Manager-->Hosts from Forms Navigator.

What I mean is the new browser window opens but is minimized. This is not acceptable to the users. This was not the way it was working with Jinitiator.

This is happening in 10 PCs running XP and IE6 or 7. But very strangly it ok in ONLY one PC running XP and IE7.

Really dont know if its a Dev6i patcset 19 issue or Sun JRE issue or IE setting.

I have raised SR (7259590.994) and the analyst asked me to apply patch 7594318. Still the issue is not resolved.

Plz advice.

Thanks
Thiru

Hi, Thiru,

There's not much additional advice that I can provide right now. Rather than turning this blog into an alternate Support channel (which isn't really feasible), I'd recommend pursuing the solution through your open Service Request. Support knows how to engage us here in Development for issues that turn out to be real bugs.

Feel free to drop me a private email if your SR gets stuck in some way.

Hi Steven,

Is there any update on the java bugs mentioned in the earlier posts by Jacob?

We recently upgraded our 11.5.10.6 Production environment to 6i Forms Patchset 19 and ran into a problem where users forms crashed whenever they cancelled out of LOV's (see SR 19965544.6 and bug 7644749 FORMS FAILURE WITH FRM-92100 WHEN CANCEL A LOV).

We were directed by support to upgrade to JRE 6 which corrected the crashing problem, however we were unaware of the aformentioned rendering and hang problems with JRE 6.

7396079 RENDERING OF WINDOW IS 'PAINFULLY' SLOW WHEN USING JRE 1.6.0_10

7485019 SUN JRE 1.6.0_10 RC2 : RESIZING THE FORMS APPLET WINDOW HANGS THE FORMS SESSION

Now our users are experiencing intermittent hangs in the application that appear to be related to the resizing issue. Is there any progress on this issue with Sun or a timeframe for a fix?

Thanks, Dawna.

Posted by Dawna Roberts on January 06, 2009 at 11:39 AM PST #

Hello Dawna,

Development regularly update the latest recommended Forms patches in the upgrade notes, either Note 125767.1 for 11i or note 437878.1 for Rel 12. These recommendations have been changing quite frequently recently due to the latest set of focus issues, so is always worth re-reading these notes to ensure you have the latest fixes

In a similar vein, the Support team have recently put together Note 753324.1 "Diagnosing Form Mouse Focus Problems In Applications R11i" This note tries to go a bit deeper into the explanations, rather than just say "apply these patches" and may also flag up known issues or additional patches that should be applied to resolve the focus issues. Again, you should regularly re-review this note to see if your issue is mentioned

For the specific bugs you are asking about, both are still being investigated/addressed with the appropriate Development teams so neither have a code fix available as yet. You can implement a workaround for the issue described in Bug 7396079 RENDERING OF WINDOW IS 'PAINFULLY' SLOW WHEN USING JRE 1.6.0_10 This workaround is documented in Note 757618.1 "Rendering Of Window Is 'Painfully' Slow When Using JRE 1.6.0_10 With APPS 11i" As of today, the solution mentioned in the note is only described for Internet Explorer so will need to get the note updated to be complete solution for Firefox also (give me a day or two to get that changed)

regards

Mike

Hi Mike. Thanks for the update. I am not able to access note 753324.1 is that note publicly available?

Hello Thiru,

The release of this fix is out of Oracle's hands, as it is a fix to Sun's JRE that we are waiting for. I understand it is quite likely the fix will be included in 1.5.0u16 and 1.6.0u12, however this is completely down to Sun and we would be just as disapointed as you if this proves not to be the case.

Hope this helps

Thanks Mike.

Our customer went live with Sun JRE 1.6.0_07 with EBS 11i ( Oracle CRM) and want to revert back to JInitiator due to the following issues:

1. Poor performance over WAN (compared to Jinitiator)
2. Arabic Characters issue (Doc Id 731703.1).
3. Minimizing a Form hangs the Forms Session

Unless the Sun JRE bugs are resolved its going to be difficult to convince customer(s) to move to Sun JRE.

Hi Mike, Thanks for the update. Do you have a timeframe for when the note (753324.1) will be available publicly?

I have had several complaints from our users recently about forms hangs when they attempt to right-click/copy from a form in E-Business. The problem is not limited to a specific form and so far I have not been able to reproduce the issue consistently - other than it seems to happen during the right-click/copy of a field in a forms screen. I am not sure whether this problem is releated
to the bug 7485019 or whether this is something new. I thought maybe reviewing the note might help.

Please let me know when you might be able to share the information with me or whether I should open another new SR on this issue.

Thanks, Dawna.

I thought this was caused by Sun JRE and reverted our EBS to use Oracle Jinitiator 1.3.1.21 and even after that we had the Forms Applet Resize issue.

I applied patch 7594318 and this issue got resolved. This patch is now mentioned in Note 125767.1 (updated on 23rd Dec '08) as additional Developer 6i Patches.

Posted by Jeff Slavitz on February 08, 2009 at 10:25 AM PST #

Support found that a work-around to my problem is to use the dev60cgi/f60cgi url instead of AppsLocalLogin. That does indeed work.

Posted by Jeff Slavitz on February 09, 2009 at 02:14 AM PST #

Jeff,

Running the Oracle Apps with dev60cgi/f60cgi is not the solution.

Since you have upgraded to Dev 6i Patchset 19 first make sure Oracle Apps is working fine with your existing Jinitiator.

Anytime you can switch to Jinitiator with txkSetPlugin.sh script.

Then implement Sun JRE 1.6.0_X.

Rgds,
Thiru

Posted by Thiru on February 10, 2009 at 09:26 PM PST #

Thiru,
The dev60cgi/f60cgi was just a workaround. The solution turned out to be that our profile option 'Self Service Personal Home Page' was set to Personal Homepage. Once it was set to Framework Only the problem went away.

Our only other issue is that when we view concurrent request log and output the window that shows the output opens minimized. Note 760250.1 problem 9 shows this as a problem in JRE update 10 and 11 but for us it is also happening in update 12. To fix this problem you have to disable the Next Generation Java Plugin. It's an easy fix but it does have to be done on every client.

Hi,
We have just upgraded our Production to SUN JRE 1.6.0_14. After the upgrade, one specific form Dispatch center form (CSFDCMAI.fmb) is having issues with rendering the objects and sometimes in opening up. There are different error messages that keep showing up like
-R0625-pure virtual function call
-Multiple JVMs identified. Cannot open.

For some users it freezes up or sometimes completely kicks out the user from the application and they have to re-login

For the same users, sometimes the form works fine and again intermittently gives these errors. We have set JRE runtime parameters on the client PC to -Xms128M -Xmx256M. This seemed to have worked the first time but the issues continue to happen. Any suggestions to help with this issue are greatly appreciated?

Thanks,
Deepa

Hi, Deepa,

Congratulations on your rollout of JRE 1.6. I'm sorry to hear that some of your users are hitting this issue.

I don't have any insight into what may be going on here. These types of intermittent problems can be difficult to debug, so your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.

Thanks for the additional information about your end-users' dual-monitor setups. I would recommend that you update your Service Request with that information, too. I'll ensure that one of our JRE specialists connects with the Support Engineer currently assigned to your SR.

Regards,
Steven

Hi, Srini,

I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue with this.

We can provide general conceptual guidance here, but I'm afraid that this blog isn't the best place to get technical support for specific issues like the one that you're working through.

Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.

Regards,
Steven

hi Steve,
Thanks for quick response.
That was resolved by following solution from oracle.

Solution

Please review Note 125767.1 "Upgrading Developer 6i with Oracle Applications 11i",
and ensure that interoperability Patch 9935935 has been applied correctly

Thanks.
Srini

What java platform do I need to run streaming quotes on Scottrade and where do I download it from? I am running windows 7

Harry,

This blog is focussed on Oracle E-Business Suite. we don't have any expertise with generic Java compatibility with third-party apps like Scottrade. I'd recommend contacting Scottrade for assistance.

Regards,
Steven
