How to generate form / library / menu for Oracle Application

Form / Library / Menu generation for Oracle application is a part of Oracle Apps DBA.

And this task we need to perform on frequent basis (depends on environment).

in this particular article i will going to explore how to generate form , library and menu in oracle application.

To generate any form/ library & menu there is executable which we need to use , that executable depends on specific platform.

for r12 oracle application.
we need to use "" (unix) / "frmcmp.exe" (windows)

1. How to Generate FORM Example:
{command line}
{forms executable} module={source form name} userid=APPS/{APPS password} 
output_file={executable form name} module_type=form batch=yes compile_all=special

Example:  module=XXXX.fmb userid=APPS/APPS 

output_file / module_type , batch and comiple parameter are optional to generate FORM.

If you have errors:

FRM-10054: Cannot attach library ...
FRM-10083: Cannot Open ...
FRM-18108: Failed to load the following objects...

check FORMS45_PATH (10.7-11.0.3), FORMS60_PATH (11i) or FORMS_PATH (r12) variable,
it must contain at least resource paths where reside libraries (*.pll, *.plx files)
and directories where reside form source files (*.fmb).

2. How to generate LIBRARY 
same executables used to generate the forms but command line changes:

{command line}

{forms executable}  {library name}  {{APPS/{APPS password}}
module_type =library  compile_all=special

Example: module=/TEST/testappl/au/12.0/resource/APPCORE.pll userid=APPS/APPS
output_file=/TEST/testappl/au/12.0/resource/APPCORE.plx module_type=library compile_all=special

3. How to generate MENU

{command line}

{forms executable}  module={source menu name}  userid={APPS/{APPS password}}
output_file={executable menu name} module_type=menu  batch=yes  compile_all=special


f60gen  module=FNDMENU.mmb  userid=APPS/APPS  output_file=FNDMENU.mmx
module_type=menu  batch=yes  compile_all=special

Notes :

1. If you have to generate many forms in Oracle Applications you can run
adadmin, menu 'Maintain Applications Files' => 'Generate form files'.

2. You could also run Forms Designer to generate a particular form, you need
to be connected to the database and must verify that you have access to dependent
modules where objects may be referenced.
