Oracle Forms WebUtil - Production Release The power of desktop integration now delivered, out of the box, on the Web!
Oracle Forms WebUtil
Where can I download WebUtil?
Oracle WebUtil is delivered and installed as a component of the Oracle Developer Suite 10.1.2 and in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g and newer. (May require a third party library, "JACOB". Refer to the Forms documentation for more information about JACOB and which version is needed for the Forms version you are using.)
The Goals of WebUtil?
WebUtil had an overriding goal to produce a utility that any Forms developer could use to carry out the complex tasks on the client browser machines by simply coding PL/SQL. With WebUtil, everything the programmer needs to do is exposed through a PL/SQL library.
What is WebUtil?
WebUtil provides a simple way to achieve client side integration while running Oracle Forms on the web. It simplifies the upgrade of existing applications to the web, and enhances the capabilities of web based Oracle Forms applications.
