Friday Tips #27

Happy Friday! If you're been following this blog, you saw last week's tip on accessing applications and desktops with Oracle Secure Global Desktop over a cellular connection using just HTML5 on an iPad. This week's question concerns HTML5 in desktop browsers:

Question:
Does Oracle have plans to support HTML5 when using desktop browsers for Oracle Secure Global Desktop?

Answer by Mohan Prabhala, Product Management Director, Oracle:
We can't discuss possible future directions. But if you want to get a feel for what it would be like to use Oracle Secure Global Desktop with HTML5 on a desktop browser (specifically the Chrome browser on a Mac, a Windows 7 PC, or a Linux based PC), you can try the following workaround.

Please note: that the workaround below is provided AS-IS, is NOT a supported configuration, and, at Oracle's sole discretion, may not be supported within Oracle Secure Global Desktop. Accordingly, this workaround must NOT be used for production deployments.

1) On the SGD server:

vi /opt/tarantella/webserver/tomcat/7.0.37_axis1.4/webapps/sgd/WEB-INF/web.xml

2) Inside the web.xml file you should see a parameter

<context-param>
      <param-name>clienttype</param-name>
      <param-value>AUTO</param-value>
</context-param>

Change the param-value to “H5C”

<context-param>
      <param-name>clienttype</param-name>
      <param-value>H5C</param-value>
</context-param>

3) Restart the SGD server:

/opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella restart

That’s really it. Let us know what you think, either via your Oracle sales rep or via this blog or our Twitter and Facebook social media channels.


Thank Mohan!

We'll see you next time with another tip. Have a great week!

Friday Tips #26

Happy Friday! With the exciting release of Oracle Secure Global Desktop 5.0 this week, we though we'd do something a little different with our Friday tip.

Since access via iPad with HTML5 is a big part of this release, a question that has come up a few times is what performance is like over cellular connections. So, we recorded some video of an iPad using an iPhone 5 on LTE as a mobile hotspot, connecting back to an Oracle Secure Global Desktop server. You can see the real world cellular performance in the video below:

See you next week!
