FRM-92095 Error with Oracle Forms on Apple Mac Safari after JRE update

Since many readers have been commenting on my blog about having JRE problems on Mac Os X and Safari. I decided to try and help BUT to give full disclosure I do not own a Mac so I have not actually tested the tips in this note. I wanted to give you all some direction with the hopes that it will help. So I’d appreciate any feedback if I got it wrong :) and I’ll do a follow up post.

The Mac Support note that is the most helpful can be found here:
How to re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6 applet plug-in and Web Start functionality

For ERP Oracle EBS users the note to solve the issue can be found here:

How to Reenable Apple Java 6 Plug-in for Mac EBS Users

In addition, I found this note on Oracle Support Cannot Access Forms on Apple Mac after updating JRE to 1.6.0_33 [ID 1473672.1] which sheds some light on the subject although it seems most people have errors currently with a higher version of the JRE.

Macs are pretty aggressive when it comes to java. It seems that if the Java version does not meet the criteria for the minimum safe version, Java is updated daily, as needed. It seems Apple intentionally blocks Safari from running older java code for fear of  virus.

I hope this sheds some light on the subject.

  1. Hello:

    Mac ! Great Machine ! but not all the time ! It’s a Machine !

    Don’t try to get back to version 6

    Just to the next in your Mac:

    In Control Panel of Java

    click Java
    click view
    in version7 Parameters write:

    -Djava.vendor=”Sun Microsystems Inc.”

    It works !

  2. Yes, it does work but not always. After opening of Form, it sometimes allow and sometimes does not allow to write in the Forms. If you go out of R12 and then again re-log, it does not work and one can not write in the Form. Only when you shut down and restart your MacBook that it again allows you to work. Any solution, why this is happening and how can it be resolved ??

  3. I’m using Firefox !
    Are you using some difrent ?
    Chrome and safari I just get a gray screen !
    Some one know why ?

      • Safari:
        The applet doesn’t started !

        Chrome:
        “Install Plug in” and when you tried to install it, appears “Chrome does not support Java 7″

        Bi-direccional ? can you explain ?

  4. It seems you are using Java 7 which is unsupported either for your browser or for your Forms version. Did you try this?
