JRE Upgrade on

Posted by appsinfo on February 24, 2009

Why we require JInitiator At All?

Oracle JInitiator was originally released as a licenced version of Sun’s Java client back when specific features were required to support Oracle Forms.
This was particularly necessary for E-Business Suite Forms-based functionality, since the E-Business Suite pushed the envelope of what Forms and Java could
do collectively from a user interface perspective. Sun has since incorporated all of the enhancements needed to support Oracle Forms into their native Sun
Java plug-in. This eliminates the need for Oracle to package its own Java client just for running Oracle Forms-based applications.
