JInitiator uses the JRE 1.3 version. This excludes the use of all the new Java features available in the next versions of the JRE.
This is the reason why, it is a good think to stop using JInitiator and replace it with the Sun Java Plugin.

Here is a short explanation about how to do this:

 - Download the Sun JRE (I've downloaded the last one : JRE 1.5.0_06)

 - Prepare your /forms/server/formsweb.cfg file

instead of the archive_jini tag, use the archive tag

add a special section (including the Webutil configuration)


If you don't use the Webutil library, point to the basejpi.htm start page:

 - Configure the Forms Builder to use this section:

   Menu : Edit -> preferences...
   tab : runtime
   item : Application server url : http://my-machine:8890/forms/frmservlet?config=javaplugin

 Then run your forms !

Here is my Java console content after these modifications:

I am interested to know if you ever discovered how to use a newer runtime with JInitiator. I have tried changing the runtime in the JInitiator properties in the control panel, but it just results in an error when Oracle forms is ran.
If you have any information, please let me know.

Hi,there is also a Way to use new Java Features in JInitiator by simply setting the CLASSPATH to a newer JDK/JRE Version.This way you can use 1.4 or 1.5 Features in an "old" JInitiator.Rag

Hello Rag,This looks very interesting. Could you provide more information and tell what configuration file to change with what values ?

Hi Francois,You might also want to take a look at two of my postings on using Sun JRE with Oracle Forms:http://www.oratransplant.nl/2005/06/16/how-to-configure-forms-to-use-sun-jpi/ which shows how to configure Oracle Forms to use Sun JRE much in the same way as you demonstratedandhttp://www.oratransplant.nl/2005/05/24/settings-for-dynamic-versioning-with-sun-jpi-and-oracle-forms/ which explains how to use Dynamic Versioning of Sun JRE if you do not want to demand a very specific version of the JRE to be installed.
