Oracle Forms Playback Setup

Oracle Applications 10.7/11.0.x

For Oracle Forms 4.5, the setup required is effectively the same whether the system is NCA or SmartClient . To enable Forms 4.5 recording the following parameter must be added to the Forms command line:


An example of a possible parameter on Windows NT is


or, on UNIX this may be:


For NCA, a new HTM file must be created for recording and another for playback. The HTM file should edited and the following line found:

<PARAM name=serverArgs" value="module=... userid=... fndnam=apps">

The record parameter should then be added to the end of this line, between the "fndnam=apps" parameter and the closing double quote. For instance:

<PARAM name=serverArgs" value="module=... userid=... fndnam=apps record=c:\temp\record.fld">

To get Oracle Forms to replay your forms playback file another HTM file must be created. To this you add a parameter in the same way as before but it is called "play", as in the following example:

<PARAM name=serverArgs" value="module=... userid=... fndnam=apps play=c:\temp\record.fld">

NCA users will require different URLs to access the different HTM files, whereas Smart Client users should add these parameters to their end of their F45RUN32.exe command line(s).
