Adding a New Java Bean to a System Classpath

Oracle Forms applications can be pushed using Java Beans components. Java Beans, in this context, are Java archives that contain applications that can be run inside Oracle Forms applets. Examples of such applications are calendars and clocks.

There are requirements for testing Oracle Forms applications that make use of Java Beans. Ensure that the Java archives containing the Java Beans are also in the system classpath. To add a new Java Bean to a system classpath, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Start > Control Panel > System.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. Click Environment Variables. This launches the Environment Variables dialog box where you can edit the environment variables.
  4. Select the CLASSPATH variable in the System variables box and click Edit.
  5. In the Edit System Variable dialog box, update the Variable name and Variable value to add the Java archive that contains the Java Bean.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Restart the Oracle Forms server.
