Oracle Forms and Javascript, how to marry them ?


Posted by Hafed | Posted in oracle | Posted on 11-02-2009

For quite some time, I was trying to figure out a way to get Javascript to work within Oracle Forms.  As usual, I use the common denominator as far as the runtime is concerned and that is JInitiator.

While that seems to be near impossible, I guess that with JAVA everything should be possible. So, after a quick search for an easy bridge, I came across the Mozilla Rhino project available here.

Here is an excerpt from the Mozilla website: “Rhino is an open-source implementation of JavaScript written entirely in Java. It is typically embedded into Java applications to provide scripting to end users.”

That says it all.  I think I need to try out Rhino and see what it can do for Oracle Forms.
