Access Oracle Apps 11i/R12 forms from Linux Mozilla Browser

How to access Oracle Apps 11i/R12 forms from Linux Mozilla Browser?

My configuration is:
Oracle Apps 12.1.1 64-bit Installed on OEL-5.7 64-bit
Mozilla Firefox Version 1.5.0.12

When I tried to open forms through Mozilla, it says unknown plugin.

We need to follow below steps to install Oracle Apps plugin for Mozilla browser:

1. Check which version of JRE your application is using:

[applmgr@apps classes]$ grep plugin $CONTEXT_FILE
<!– JDK plugins –>
<sun_plugin_ver oa_var=”s_sun_plugin_ver”>1.5.0_10</sun_plugin_ver>
<sun_plugin_type oa_var=”s_sun_plugin_type”>jdk</sun_plugin_type>
[applmgr@apps classes]$

In my case, it shows 1.5.0_10 that means I need to download JRE Version 5 and update 10.

2. Download JRE by going through below link:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javasebusiness/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase5-419410.html

Click on “J2SE(TM) Development Kit 5.0 Update 10” and then Accept Licence Agreement and do download jdk-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin

3.  Once it is downloaded, change the permissions and install it by following commands as a root user:

[root@apps Desktop]# cd ..
[root@apps ~]# cd Desktop/
[root@apps Desktop]# ls -ltr
total 46648
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 47706388 Apr 13 11:43 jdk-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin
[root@apps Desktop]# chmod 755 jdk-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin
[root@apps Desktop]# ./jdk-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin (You will be asked to accept license agreement, click enter)
