R12 - How to deploy form on a server:
We use f60gen in R11i for deploying forms , but f60gen is deprecated in R12. We use frmcmp_batch.sh for forms compilation in R12.
1) Backup the existing form in location $AU_TOP/forms/US
2) Copy the new form ( *.fmb ) to the location $AU_TOP/forms/US
3) Set the forms env var
4) Compile the form using :
frmcmp_batch.sh userid=apps/xxxxxx Module=xxxxx.fmb Module_Type=form compile_all=special output_file=xxxxxx.fmx
5) Copy the generated form ( *.fmx) to the corresponding product top ( $PROD_TOP/forms/US )
6) Check the permission on file *.fmx ( it should be 755 )
