Java web forms using Edge or Chrome instead of IE?

  • 1.  Java web forms using Edge or Chrome instead of IE?

    Posted 24 days ago
    Hello,

    My apologies if this is in the incorrect forum.  We currently use Internet Explorer to launch our Java web forms for Oracle EBS 12.1.3.  Has anyone been able to use Edge, Chrome, or a different browser to launch the Java web forms in a similar environment?  If so, what configurations or patches were needed?  

    Thank you in advance for any advice provided.

    Regards,
    Tim Porterfield

    Hi, Tim.

    Chrome/Edge do not allow Java plug-ins, so unless you use some sort of extension that may be risky or not work quite right, you can only use IE.  However, since IE will be de-supported later this year, I would suggest you switch to Java Web Start, which will allow you the freedom to use whatever browser you wish with Java forms. We made the switch a coupe years back and it works very well for us. We were on 12.1.3 some time ago and are currently on 12.2.7.  

    Please take a look at My Oracle Support Doc ID 2188898.1 for a very good, detailed look at Java Web Start.
