Oracle Forms

WebUtil

The power of desktop integration delivered out of the box, on the Web!

Where can I download WebUtil?
Oracle WebUtil is included with all Oracle Forms 11g and newer installations.  
(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 end-user 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 from a web application server like WebLogic. It simplifies the upgrading of older client/server applications to web deployment, and enhances the capabilities of web based Oracle Forms applications.
