Developer Server 1.6.1 for Banner Web Forms
Currently SUNY is not licensed for Developer Server. We have
received certain versions in the past due to Oracle shipping errors and we
now receive current versions due to the fact that Oracle now sends us
software "bundles" which include the Developer Server.
This software is being made available for testing purposes only!
For Alpha OpenVMS the code is in GetSoftware. The filename is
For Alpha NT the code can be downloaded from: ftp://lofft3.itec.suny.edu/ftp1/alphant_developer_server_1.6.1.zip
For Intel NT we have a Developer/2000 version 188.8.131.52.1. This is
a special version that was packaged with Oracle Applications which we
received by mistake. I installed this and it installed Forms / Forms
Server 184.108.40.206.0. This can be downloaded from: HERE
Version 1.6 can be downloaded from: http://ng.itec.suny.edu/oracle/Windows95%26NT/intelnt95_developer2kserver1.6.zip
Database Security Patch - Oracle found out about a security
problem on May 7th of 1999. The problem effects Oracle
versions 8.0.3, 8.0.4, 8.0.5 and 8.1.5 (8i) on UNIX ONLY. If you are
using one of these versions and have the Oracle Intelligent Agent running,
then you will be interested in getting the fix.
