I am trying to connect Oracle Forms 10g version (9.0.4) to the Oracle 10G Enterprise Edition.

At first I tried to connect to the db without setting the "Local Net Service Name Configuration" in Oracle Net Configuration Assistant.I got the errorenter image description here

After setting the "Local Net Service Name Configuration" in Oracle Net Configuration Assistant, I am still getting an error

enter image description here

Can anyone explain me how to connect to the database with forms as I am stubbed as of long struggle for connecting the database?

# tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\network\admin\tnsnames.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

ORCL =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 127.0.0.1)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = orcl)
    )
  )

EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SID = PLSExtProc)
      (PRESENTATION = RO)
    )
  )

The following are the listener.ora and tnsnames.ora contents

# listener.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\network\admin\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
      (ORACLE_HOME = C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
  )

LISTENER =
  (DESCRIPTION_LIST =
    (DESCRIPTION =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1))
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = RahulSingh-PC)(PORT = 1521))
    )
  )

The message is an indication of incompatibility of Forms version that you're using with your OS, i.e. Windows 7.

You'll need to install Oracle Forms version 10.1.2.0.2 with patchset 3 to have this corrected.

Else you can also install Oracle Forms 11g R2 which is certified for Windows 7

Add this to both tnsnames.ora or

hr = (SID_LIST = (SID_DESC = (SID_NAME = hr) (ORACLE_HOME = ) (PROGRAM = extproc) ) )

  • It might help future visitors if you explained why this works.
