Install Weblogic 10.3.6 64Bit using JDK 7, Configure Forms & Reports 11gR2 on Windows 8 64Bit


A wonderful article about setting up Weblogic Server 10.3.6 64Bit using JDK 7 is available here(Install Weblogic Server 10.3.6 64bit)

Once you installed the product, installing forms and reports 11g should be as easy as installing any software bundle on Windows platform.

However, one of the nasty errors we came across multiple times were related to JAVA

While the forms & reports 11gR2 reaches 19% installation, it stops and java errors are thrown in the log file, without giving any prompts over the GUI. If the installation stops @ 19% for a long time, cancel the installation and restart. That deals with the java error

Once you completed the forms and reports installation, you can invoke the configuration as described with our earlier post

and you should be online within 20-25 minutes!

    After all the installation and configuration, I now have problem logging into the DB. I tried to compile form and it was giving me error tns error listener does not currently know the SID giving in the connect indicator

    How do I resolve this?

    1. Hello Hakay

      You need to update the tnsnames.ora file usually found under …asinst_1\config folder with your database service details. For example, my asinst_1\config path is like following:
      D:\Weblogic\asinst_1\config, where I have the tnsnames.ora file. Make a copy of the file for rollback purposes, the copy the service details from the database tnsnames.ora file or replace the ora file with a copy from the database/developer network folder.
