Forms 10.1.2.0.2 with WebUtil is very slow to start up

Forms 10.1.2.0.2 with WebUtil is very slow to start up

APPLIES TO:

Oracle Forms - Version: 10.1.2.0.2 to 10.1.2.2.0 - Release: Oracle10g to 10.1.2.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

SYMPTOMS

Users find that their initial connection is VERY slow when starting a form using webutil. On forms without WebUtil, the initial connection is very fast.


 

CAUSE

This is caused by Bug 5116235 WEBUTIL STARTUP IS SLOW IF THE CLIENT MACHINE DNS IS NOT CONFIGURED
that is fixed in Forms / Webutil 10.1.2.3. When a java method used in webutil tried to resolve hostname with IP address, if the hostname is not registered with DNS server it took more time, as documented in a Sun Bug 5092063, fixed in Sun plug-in Java version 1.5.06.

SOLUTION

Upgrading to Forms and Webutil version 10.1.2.3 (or above if available) will solve the issue . This version corresponds to  Patch 5983622. 

Also, one-off patches are available on top of either version 10.1.2.0.2 or 10.1.2.2 (choose your release in the drop-down list) at:  patch 5116235.
As usual, apply and confirm that the patch resolves the matter on a test system before applying in Production.
