Good morning to all ranchers,
We are using Forms Listener Servlet for deployment of forms on the web we are able to succesfully deploy the forms on the web using 'Patch 6' forms listener servlet on Oracle9iAS 1.0.2.0.0( on win 2000 server)
when we are calling the form by using a URL like http://ias/servlet/f60servlet?config=servlet&form=test.fmx
a message is shown
"Loading java applet "
after that .. in the status bar a message is shown that "Applet started "
Is it possible in some way to get rid of this message
my thinking is that .. if it is the servlet which are doing all the work then it must be also possible to get rid of this Applet tag.
the problem is that although the processing is done as a servelt but to the client it is shown as an Applet.

What I was initially thinking was that this line must be hardcoded somewhere in the jar files .. and went as far as archiving the and then decompiling using MOCHA( beta version )
to add to my woes there were more then 3000 class files .. A work like finding a statement "Loading java applet" in all these class files is like a needle in the haystack..
If only the browser gets the data as a servlet or a JSP page instead of a applet which fires a jinitiator or JVM ( depending on settings ) then the tag "loading java applet will not be shown.

It really asks for some out of the box thinking .. as I have already tried to elicit information from many people without success
can someone .. give me a new way of thinking ..
anyone.. ..I am really feeling short of ideas ..

Regards
Sunil choudhary
( it really feels good coming to ranch after 3 months ..There has been drastic learning in my first job.. an experience .in itself. )

I'm not really sure what you're asking. Are you saying you have an applet that talks to a servlet, and you don't like the fact that when the applet loads it says "applet loading" or whatever in the status bar? I don't know from your explanation why this would be a problem, but I suppose you could try to use javascript to write some text to the status bar using the setInterval() or setTimer() method to time it properly.
Yet another option to get rid of this offensive message might be to bring up the applet in a window that has no status bar, thereby effectively shielding your users from the dangerous knowledge that the applet is indeed loading.
Have I assessed your problem correctly or am I way off? Hope I've been helpful.
Jason

Thanks Jason ..
you are right on mark .. I will try the suggestions ..given by you ..
( you are right when you think that, I want to shield this info.)
through a forms listener servlet it is a servlet which processes and throws it to an applet .. in hte browser .. I dont want an applet in between )
SOME more info on the probelm .. probably someone might strike upon a brilliant idea
=======================================
You cannot have an HTML front end to Forms. This would be done as a servlet at the back end which generates HTML to be displayed on the client - you can do this using JSP in JDeveloper but NOT in FORMS
