When I am running a form in Forms 11g


I'm getting an error:

Failure of server APACHE bridge:
No backend server available for connection: timed out after 10 seconds or idempotent set to OFF. 

Products installed:

  1. Web Logic 10.3.5
  2. forms&reports&portals

Can anybody help me fix this problem?

Sorry for providing you with very little information.As a newbie I have very little idea about the Oracle Forms.So could you tell me how to check the log files for the Oracle Forms Output? – Rahul Singh Jul 15 '12 at 18:33
Here is the Database Config Enterprise Manager Database Control URL - (orcl) : RahulSingh-PC:1158/em Your database configuration files have been installed in C:\oracle\product\10.2.0 while other components selected for installation have been installed in C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1. Be cautious not to accidentally delete these configuration files.

This is Weblogic. The FORMS services are actually answered by a Weblogic Java Server. It is named WLS_FORMS and you can start it via the web logic management console (available by default as http://localhost:7001/console).

Click on the servers link on the left, then on the main pane, select "Control" tab. Select the checkbox next to WLS_FORMS and select "Start listening".

Even though the AdminServer is running, the other servers (WLS_FORMS, WLS_REPORTS, etc) are not started by default. You can correct this with batch scripts, or following the Oracle supports notes on creating Windows services for these items. – REW Jul 16 '12 at 6:05
