(simply enable in Extension Options)
And its simple - just click here go to the Chrome Web Store and install the Extension
Chrome uses the ThinForms Java Host App to run your Forms Applications - all required files will be downloaded for you by the Chrome Extension. Alternatively, you can directly install the ThinForms Java Host application from here
How the ThinForms Chrome Extension Works
In order to run your Forms Applications from Google Chrome, you need 2 main components:
ThinApplet Google Chrome Extension (available here)
ThinApplet Java Host Application (available here)
The ThinForms Chrome Extension keeps an eye out for Oracle Forms and Oracle EBS Applets.
ThinForms uses Native Messaging to communicate with the Java Host Application
The Java Host Application will download (and cache) all Forms JAR files,
and then start your Forms/EBS Application
The ThinForms Chrome Extension and the Java Host Application are tightly integrated, and support SSO and cookies (e.g. for Oracle Reports authentication).
