Hello to all and Happy Christmas to you all

Where I can find info about installation/deploying on Oracle middleware Weblogic 11g?

How can I deploy Formspider application using Oracle web server, Jboss or Glassfish (not only Tomcat,that I found )?

I think it's very important for Oracle web forms developer (10 and 11g release).

Hi Rosario,

Thank you, happy Christmas you, too.

Formspider Middleware is a small set of Servlets that let clients connect to oracle database. So you can deploy it into any Java Servlet container.

There is a blog post written by a Formspider user, ik_zelf(Ronald), that guides you through installation into Glassfish. Click to the link to see his post. http://ronr.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-setup-formspider-apex.html

There's also deployment information for Weblogic, you can see it in https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lhHeES5uad51JIKm2irRfV89IvHAb5rOT0HLcP4G_ts/edit?usp=sharing

There isn't any documentation for Jboss, however, generally there are three simple steps:

  1. Create a datasource for oracle db connections
  2. Modify web.xml according to datasource information
  3. Deploy WAR file.

Hope this helps,

JBoss EAP (all versions) wraps the datasource and connection implementation classes provided by third party JDBC drivers in order to provide connection pooling and transaction integration. Consequently, the class instances returned by DataSource.getConnection() and other related APIs cannot be directly cast to vendor specific class types.

java.lang.ClassCastException: oracle.sql.CLOB cannot be cast to oracle.sql.CLOB

so it is either needed a .war version for Jboss with kind of workaround (not to use jndi but use direct connection for example)

Sorry, another question

When I try to install when I get the screen that show up:

installation settings of Formspider Middle-tier Components

You can install either a new Tomcat application server or you can use an existing one. First time installers should select “Install new Tomcat server”.

should be it a Tomcat MW? or is possible choose another; something I already have installed; e.g. (OAS 10, or weblogic 11gr2)?

Hi Rosario,

The Formspider Installer can only install to Tomcat MW. If you want to install Formspider servlets toOAS or Weblogic you should download the WAR file at https://www.dropbox.com/s/deru9gojramoel3/formspider160.war and follow the instructions specified in this thread.

To start quickly, I'd just let Formspider Installer install to Tomcat. You can always install to Weblogic or OAS later.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards, Yalim
