Oracle Java Recording API

The Java Recording API is comprised of two elements:
  • HTTP recording rules
  • Instructions regarding which Java classes implement recording logic

HTTP recording rules are necessary to prevent the recording of certain HTTP/ HTTPS traffic when HTTP/HTTPS is the transport protocol of the client/server communication channel. Not all HTTP/HTTPS traffic is ignored-only the traffic that sends/receives messages is ignored.

This means that if your Oracle Forms application is embedded in a normal HTML file with embedded objects or frames, the calls that request those pages will be scripted and therefore they will be requested during replay.

In terms of scripting the necessary OraForms API calls, all communication between the applet and the server is handled by the Java Recorder.
