    Angry Trying to start the Forms server in Oracle DS 10g


    I have installed Oracle DS10g on my Windows2000 sp3 pc, and when I try to run the test form, after starting the OC4J server:

    04/04/21 13:18:13 Oracle Application Server Containers
    for J2EE 10g ( initialized
    04/04/21 13:18:45 FormsServlet init():
    configFileName: c:\ODS10g/forms90/server/formsweb.cfg
    testMode: false

    I get a gray rectangle with the message:
    java.lang.classNotFoundException: oracle.forms.engine.Main

    What am I missing here ?
    There are a number of .jar archives in C:\ODS10g\forms90\java, and this directory IS in the classpath (I added it manually).

    I noticed that the web page attempts to load the following URL:


    However, I do not have a f90servlet.jar or any f90servlet.* in the forms90 directory (that is, C:\ODS10g\forms90)

    Shouldn't I have had this installed by the full ODS10g install (which completed with no errors) ?

    Any ideas ?
    Thanks !

    There is a good article on how to install by Steven Callan


    and he's probably the only one who could answer your question if it still doesnt work.

    Thanks for the plug, but it was for UNIX. I answered this question in the MetaLink Forms forum. Haven't done any cookbooks for Windows because the products almost always install without a hitch and are usually pretty straightforward. For a Java-related error, check the classpath created in the default.env file (as a start).

    The c:\ODS10g/forms90/server/formsweb.cfg makes me wonder because of the switcheroo in "\" to "/" in the path. And most of those parameters you pass in don't have to be - they're all configurable in the formsweb.cfg file.
