Deploys any combination of Menu, Form, Library, Report, and other files to a Forms and Reports server. Source files are copied to Stage directory and compiled in to Destination directory. Compiled and source files can be kept in different or the same locations based on project property values.
Deploy operation must be executed on Forms server as it copies files to destination folders and performs compilation.
For partial deploy, files will be moved under the directory specified include path that is part of File Name. For example, if your File Name is /forms/employeedetail.fmb and stage directory is /u01/app, then final file path will be /u01/app/forms/employeedetail.fmb.
Oracle Forms Source Script
Path to an Oracle Forms environment file (e.g.
/u01/app/oracle/middleware/user_projects/domains/ClassicDomain/config/fmwconfig/servers/WLS_FORMS/applications/formsapp_11.1.2/config/default.env). On Linux environment, this property is required.
On a Windows environment, the environment must be set manually before running the plugin.
|Oracle Forms Database User|
|Yes||DB User to connect with privileges. (e.g. apps).|
|Oracle Forms Database Password|
|Yes||DB Password for Oracle Forms Database User.|
|Oracle Forms Database TNS Name|
|Yes||TNS Name for the DB. May need to be defined in |
|Oracle Forms Custom Classpath Additions|
|No||Additional classpath to add when compiling Forms, Menus, and Libraries.|
The following properties are
DESTINATION properties. They set where the (compiled for Forms, Menus, and Libraries) files are placed on the deploy server.
STAGE properties are set, the Forms, Menus, and Libraries source files will be placed in the same folder.
|Oracle Forms Destination Directory|
|No||Target directory for compiled Form files (fmx). (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/forms)|
|Oracle Libraries Destination Directory|
|No||Target directory for Library files (plx). (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/libraries)|
|Oracle Menus Destination Directory|
|No||Target directory for compiled Menu files (mmx). (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/menus)|
|Oracle Reports Destination Directory|
|No||Target directory for report files (rep). (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/reports)|
|Other Files Root Destination Directory|
|No||Target directory for other files (unknown files). (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/other)|
The following properties are
STAGE properties. They are used to keep the source and compiled files in different locations on the deploy server, similar to how there are src and class folders in Java projects.
|Oracle Forms Stage Directory|
|No||Stage folder where uncompiled Form files (fmb) are kept. (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/forms)|
|Oracle Libraries Stage Directory|
|No||Stage folder where uncompiled Library files (pll, pld) are kept. (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/libraries)|
|Oracle Menus Stage Directory|
|No||Stage folder where uncompiled Menu files (mmb) are kept. (e.g. /u01/app/oracle/middleware/FR_home/menus)|
This operation consumes artifacts from the BuildForms operation
This operation delegates endpoint selection to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default the selection to "All", which selects all available endpoints associated to the environment instance. Selecting a specific resource will result in selection of endpoints associated to the environment instance which have that resource defined.
This operation delegates endpoint execution to the workflow developer. The workflow editor will default to "Any", which will execute on any one of the selected endpoints, which will be randomly picked from selected endpoints or a specific endpoint where previous step may have executed. Changing this value to "All" to will result in execution on all selected endpoints.
