By: Scuba Fri, 29 Jul 2011 14:58:56 +0000 /?p=121#comment-602 I finally got around the jdapi error by setting the oracle home and path:
I also used a newer pldoc since I had that installed too.

set ORACLE_HOME=C:\DevSuiteHome_1
set PATH=%ORACLE_HOME%\bin;%ORACLE_HOME%\jdk\jre\bin;%ORACLE_HOME%\jdk\jre\bin\classic;%ORACLE_HOME%\jlib;%ORACLE_HOME%\jdk\bin;%PATH%

Sorry, can’t help you there (haven’t used it in 6 years). But on the FoReDoclet page you can submit a bug report:

By: Maurizio Tue, 21 Jul 2009 14:59:18 +0000 /?p=121#comment-599 Hi all,
I’m testing this product using client configuration as point 19. It’s working fine but I ‘ve still problem reading PLSQL Code from my forms such as sample forms (core.fmb).

DEBUG nostran.foredoclet.util.TemplateHelper – DEBUG WARNING: A package body was tried to be parsed (unknown PL/SQL object type)

appears in foredoclet.log file.
Any ideas?

By: Alex Nuijten Mon, 20 Jul 2009 07:18:27 +0000 /?p=121#comment-598 It’s been quite a while that I have used this tool, in fact I have changed laptops since and haven’t installed it on my “new” machine – which is due for replacement soon. You can’t deinstall it the regular way you deinstall Windows applications?

By: charlie Mon, 13 Jul 2009 18:22:36 +0000 /?p=121#comment-597 this tool is throwing errors for me…

any idea how to de-install?

thanks in advance.

The jdapi.jar file name varies from version to version.

For oracle forms version – 101202, the name is “frmjdapi.jar”, in the same way search
for this file for other versions in the folder where oracle forms installed.

Ex : in my machine oracle forms has been installed in the path of
” D:\DevSuiteHome_1\forms\java\frmjdapi.jar “.

Have you selected the same path while installing FoReDoclet tool? If not please do that it will solve many problems…:-)

I am not aware of GAFORMS.fpp file and no other setup has been done my side while i was using this tool.


By: supriya Tue, 02 Jun 2009 05:30:34 +0000 /?p=121#comment-595 Hi Alex,

Thanks for the reply. I got the answers for my questions after some investigation. ForDoclet 1.1 got worked on the below versions.
oracle database – 10201
D2K – 101202
Java Runtime Environment – 1.4.2

Only point to remember is fordoclet installs only the folder (with some sample projects) in whatever the path we give at installation time.everything has to process from this folder.

anyway i need one more information on this.

Is tehre any competitor tools available in market for this FoReDoclet Tool?


By: Alex Nuijten Wed, 27 May 2009 10:56:44 +0000 /?p=121#comment-594 Supriya,

From what I understand from the Sourceforge page, is that FoReDoclet only works with Forms 6 and 9. And you would have a newer version, so it would appear you’re out of luck.
The last update to the SourceForge page was done in 2006, more than 3 years ago…

By: supriya Tue, 05 May 2009 10:43:28 +0000 /?p=121#comment-593 Hi,

oracle database – 10201
D2K – 101202
Java Runtime Environment – 1.4.2

and then tried to install ForeDoclet – 1.1
followed the below steps for the same
1)Downloaded set-up.jar file and
2)Run the set-up.jar file and it was asked for “F90JDAPI.jar ” file.
This jar file i find in but not in oracle home. I selected this and continued withthe installation.
got the message of installation finished and i clicked on quit button.
Hmm…but nothing has been installed related to Foredoclet.

Could anyone help me in this installation process?

By: nilesh Wed, 26 Nov 2008 06:54:51 +0000 /?p=121#comment-591 I installed foredoclet but when i am trying to execute it it is showing error that “didn’t find f90jdapi.jar file”
I have changed path of f90jdapi.jar file in GAFORMS.fpp but it is still showing error

Thank you for your comments. I’m sorry but I can’t help you with this. Maybe the comment by Lucas (comment no.3) might give you some clues.
