SVG Viewer for Firefox

Patrick Sinke 8

The Adobe SVG Viewer is a viewer for Scalable Vector Graphics like charts and graphics and, as I found out, is used by Oracle in web-applications. It’s downloadable at Adobe downloads.
However, the plugin only works for Internet Explorer.
With some minor tweaks it’s possible to make it available under Firefox/Mozilla. Just copy two files:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\AdobeSVG Viewer 3.0\Plugins\NPSVG3.dll and
C:\Program File\sCommon Files\AdobeSVG Viewer 3.0\Plugins\ in the plugins folder of your Firefox/Mozilla plugins folder and restart your browser. Firefox still complains that plugins are missing, but the graphs are displayed.

  3. Oops.. didn’t see Lucas’ post on that. I’ll search better next time 🙂

  4. Be aware that version 3.03 is not yet compatible with the post reports on this site. Lucas is working on it. Version 3.02 works.

Oracle Enterprise Manager

With Oracle 10g (release 1) the enterprise manager is only available as a web-based application. However, it doesn’t provide all the necessary options yet. Among others, the xmldb and advanced queues administration is lacking, so you still need the java console. Unfortunately this is not installed by default and the […]
