STORET logo Oracle Forms Runtime 6i Patch


The SIM application was developed with a product known as Oracle Forms. During the testing of SIM version 2.0.2 there was an issue discovered where the application would abnormally exit intermittently after closing or transitioning to a new form. This doesn't appear to be a critical issue as it doesn't corrupt your data, but it can be frustrating if it occurs frequently. This issue was traced to a bug in the Oracle Forms product itself, rather than SIM. To ensure that the SIM v2.0.2 software runs correctly on your machine, it is highly recommended that your version of the Oracle Forms Runtime be properly patched to patch level 18. If you see this type of behavior in your SIM v2.0.2, then you may want to run this patch.
