I am trying to create a file in a directory in the local machine like c:\myfolder and write data to the file
using the below.


when we access the application from a browser, this was working.
We are trying to move away from IE since its being retired.
We are now trying to test the application by invoking the application from a desktop ICON using javaapplet, webstart.
all the functionality works perfectly fine other than using the above client_text_io calls.

I am getting the following error.
oracle.forms.webtil.file.FileFunctions bean not found CLIENT_TEXT_IO.fopen will not work.

Below is the error from the logs.

Please help.

1. Does the webutil.plx exists and is accessable by the forms runtime process (through FORMS_PATH variable)?

2. Are you by any chance using those calls in very early triggers? As this is what webutil help says:

Adding WebUtil Code Once the WebUtil library has been attached to your form you can start to add calls to the various PL/SQL APIs defined by the utility. However, there is an important restriction in the use of WebUtil functions: WebUtil can only start to communicate with the client once the Form has instantiated the WebUtil PJCs. [b]This means that you cannot call WebUtil functions before the Forms user interface is rendered. This would include triggers such as PRE-FORM, WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE and WHEN-NEW-BLOCK-INSTANCE for the first block in the Form[/b]. Likewise you cannot call functions after the user interface has been destroyed for instance in POST-FORM. If you do need to use WebUtil at Forms startup, it is recommended that you create a timer with a short duration (about 1ms) in your WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger, then make the WebUtil call in a WHEN-TIMER-EXPIRED trigge
