J-2 before the new Oracle forms 10g application move to Production


Posted by Hafed | Posted in oracle | Posted on 27-11-2008

Everything is now in place for the move to production. This is scheduled for this coming Saturday Nov 29, 2008.  There were several hurdles along the way and adjusting the printing functionality we had in the C/S version to the new 10g web version were not that easy.

In fact, I had some sleepless nights the last two weeks. I can say that I mastered the way reports server works on UNIX (AIX).

I wrote the following paper which explains what you need to do in order to implement some printing requirements such as duplex printing, tray selection etc.

I used a scenario that might be of interest to a number of implementers. Please note that the solutions I outlined work at the present time and are specific to the platform we use, namely report server on AIX. You might have to make some adjustments if you are on a different UNIX platform.

If you do use this info, please leave a comment or suggestions so that I can improve the document for others to use.
