Could you provide a tutorial on how to call a formspider application form an Oracle Form? This should include passing in the username password so that the user does not have to log in again.

Hi Joseph,

This can be done easily using the api_application.getBookmark API. Using this API you can read parameter/value pairs in a URL string.

Below is a link which explains how to use this API:

However, when calling a URL from Forms, don't pass username and password as values in your URL string. Instead create a random string (a Token if you will) save this token to a database table and pass this token in your URL string. Next, use the getBookmark API to read the token. Validate it against the table and continue with the application flow if the token is a valid one. You can even restrict the time a token is valid.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
