Accessing Oracle EBS from linux client...

We cloned an Oracle EBS enviroment to a laptop for demo purposes. We installed Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, and cloned an excisting EBS environment.
After I got the EBS running, I tried to access the application from the linux laptop. But there was one problem, Jinitiator only works with windows. So, I was able to download the jini.exe, but could not execute it. Another way to work with the Oracle EBS (11.5.10.2) is using the sun java plugin.
I found out no plugins were installed in Firefox yet, so I had to download the sun java plugin.
I decided to download version 1.5.0.12. After installing the downloaded file, the plugin has to be noticed by Firefox. You can do this by creating a link in the FIREFOX_HOME/plugins directory.
Create a link to the libjavaplugin_oji.so from the installed jre...
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_12/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ./libjavaplugin_oij.so

After the link is created, the java plugin is recognized in Firefox.
Next step is to let EBS now, you can also use the sun java plgin instead of the default jinitiator. This can be done by adjusting the $OA_HTML/bin/appsweb_sid.cfg and change the following lines.

sun_plugin_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.5.0_12
sun_plugin_version=1.5.0_12

After bouncing the webserver you can use the sun java plugin, but also the default jinitiator.

Should be. I thought Firefox was supported with eBS R12.
I have not tested it yet.
