Navigation very slow and not able to enter in memory a sequence issue

Hello,
we have a big problem with oracle forms performance since we deployed our
application to the web. all our customers are not confortable with this new
environment because the sytem are very slow and working it's very difficult.
our application is very slow in point of when the user use very quickly the key
functions it doens't work.
I explain :
for example, we have a button &Verifier (alt+v : acces key to this button) and
when clicking to button we have a dialox box that contains 2 buttons:
Oui(alt+O:access key) and Non(alt+N:access key) and if we click Oui(alt+O) it
popup as an information box and we must click Ok(alt+O: access key).
then if we click quickly alt+v after alt+o after alt+o it doens't work and it
wait to click againt alt+o.(like the system doesn't follow or has not yet enter all the sequence in the memory)
before in client/server it work's fine.
it's like our application in the web it's not able to entered in memory a
serial of access key.
please can you help me the problem is always occuring in the production
environment.
our environment:
- oracle jiniator :1.3.1.22
OAS 10G (9041)
DATABASE 9206
- the complete version of forms : 9.0.4.0.19
- we have 23 USERS.
any help are welcome, the problem are urgent.
thank you.

Hi
Lets analyse and hope to narrow down your issue
We have used the Pick and Pack Manager to release goods from Sales Order through to Invoice. The functionality offered is good,
> Slow performance could be triggered by multile issue  , so lets wait
> Do you know PICKand PACK manager is only for status ,but it actually doesn't affect inventory level .
but in practise the system is so slow it is taking 2 to 3 times longer than copying to a Sales Invoice.
> You need to do delivery first and transfer the delivery into invoice .
Is there any way of cutting out part of the process to speed things up? What we really need is to be able to create an invoice(s) straight from the Pick and Pack manager.
>> It basically depends upon your business process . but by software , You can bypass Pick and PACK Manager process. You can transfer  your sales order into A/R invoice  and while posting A/R invoice , inventory will be reduced .
Hope this help to narrow down your issue
thank you

  • Why is my (old) macbook pro so very slow and not able to receive gmail?

    It seems to have given up.  I have deleted spam, old messages etc.  Any other ideas to speed it up?
    Very slow to start up, seems unable to think...does that mean it is out of RAM?  How would I check that?
    Thanks for any help
    G

    Try removing Dropbox from your startup items. Go to System Preferences / Users & Groups. Click your name and choose login items. You can remove it there. That won't delete it from your machine, just stop it from loading automatically. Reboot and see if that helps.
    I'm not sure what "store monitor" is. I don't think that's for the App store, as I don't have it running on my machine. See if that loads from Login items while you're in there.

  • IPhone 4 very slow and not very responsive

    Hello - ever since updating to ios5 my phone has been significantly slower. I close my open apps regularly and don't have a crazy amount (about 6 pages worth) but the phone is just very slow. For example, if I get a text message and go to open it, and then try to click in the text box to start typing, nothing happens. It takes a good 6-8 seconds before the phone even recognizes me touching the text bar which is incredibly annoying. The camera is often slow too, having a shutter lag of 10 seconds sometimes. I would wipe my phone and do a restore, but I think that will just restore all of my backed up data which will probably not work, and I really would not want to start from scratch and lose all of my 4 years of text message history, etc. Any ideas?

    Very few apps run in the background since there is no reason or benefit for nearly all apps to do so. The overhwelming majority of apps are quit or suspended with leaving the app. An app being available in the recently used apps bar or dock does not mean the app is running in the background, and removing apps not running in the background from the recently used apps bar or dock doesn't accomplish much if anything.
    How often do you power your iPhone off and on?
    Try a reset, which is done by pressing and holding the home button and the sleep/wake or on/off button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo and then release.
    If no change after this, try restoring your iPhone with iTunes as a new iPhone or not from the backup to see if this makes any difference. If not, you can restore again from the existing backup.

  • Why are most of the apps (anything that has to search) on my iphone4 and ipad (1) running very slow (or not at all) since iOS5 update...esp google. Search seems to go quickly, but then when I try to open a link..nothing. I have turned off icloud.

    I am having the same problem. Did turning off iCloud work? Did you just turn everything off or did you actually delete the account off your iPod?

    wen6275,
    It looks like you're actually using a camera or phone to take a photo of your monitor.
    That's not what is commonly known as a "screen shot". 
    It looks like you're on a Mac.  Hitting Command+Shift+3 places a capture of the contents of your entire monitor on your Desktop; hitting Command+Shift+4 will give you a cross-hairs cursor for you to select just the portion you want to capture.
    I'm mentioning this because I fear I'm not construing your original post correctly when you type "I am working with a large files [sic], currently it has 149 layers, all of which are high resolution photographs", so I'm wondering if there's some similar use of your own idiosyncratic nomenclature in your description of your troublesome file.
    Perhaps I'm just having a major senior moment myself, but I'm utterly unable to imagine such a file.  Would you mind elaborating?

  • I am not able to enter the password and also can not able to open any application in my Mac Book Pro;to log in I have to force shutdown.

    Hi
    My Mac book pro is behaving strangely. I am not able to enter the Password and can't open any application/folder. To log-in I have to give forced shutdown. When ever I try to open any application the screen turns grey (some times) and the window pop up " --------- quit unexpectedly".
    I updated the OS too from the available updates but the problem persists. I have reasonable amont of data in it, which definitely I do not want to loose.
    Kindly let me know how can I come out of the above scenario?

    Hi Susan,
    In that case I will recommend that you consult a local technician/IT team and see if there is some network connectivity issue with your machine.

    1. upgrade to lion, which should over write previous software and the reasons for it being slow.
    No, you don't want to upgrade over a buggy system, Lion has issues of it's own that will only complicate matters, plus Lion is slower than Snow Leopard.
    Learn all the pitfalls before you upgrade to Lion, like all your Rosetta/older programs will no longer work and more.
    Leave Lion for a new hardware purchase is my advice, it's still got plenty of security and other issues.
    For your performance, your likely better off replacing the hard drive with a 7,200 RPM model and maxing the RAM, download the free MacTracker to find out your specs, and OtherWorld Computing is good for videos, tools and parts.

    2. Format the hard disc and reinstall snow leopard.
    That will work, provided your data is off the machine first.
    Now how do i reinstall snow leopard as it was an online purchased upgrade from leopard.
    The 10.6 Snow Leopard disk that you upgraded 10.5 Leopard from actually has the full OS X 10.6 on it.
    All you have to do is stick the disk in and hold the c key down while booting, use Disk Utility to erase the entire drive, quit and install 10.6.
    Of course your not going to get the free iLife that came with the 10.5 grey disks, see if you can first install 10.5 with the same methods, then setup with the same user name as before, then upgrade to 10.6
    I think Apple nulled booting off the 10.5 disks, but it won't hurt to try.
    Another method would be to install 10.6 fresh by itself, then use the program called Pacifist to extract iLife from the 10.5 disks.

    Need Help Ye,
    boot your MacBook Pro into Recovery mode by holding down a Command key and the R key as it starts up. Once the Mac OS X Utilities menu appears, select Disk Utility. On the left-hand side of the Disk Utility window, select your internal disk’s boot partition (typically called “Macintosh HD”). On the right-hand side, press the Verify Disk button if it’s not greyed out; if it is greyed out, or if it reports that errors were found, press the Repair Disk button. Once the verification/repair is completed, exit Disk Utility and select Restart from the Apple menu to restart in normal mode. Is it still very slow?

    Hello,
    I have very similar problem. Suddenly Firefox stopped work - It was working few days after ver. 4 update. I was looking everywhere for some solution but nothing worked.
    - uninstalled firewall - did not worked
    - added full exception for Firefox into the firewall - did not worked
    - Firefox reinstall - did not worked
    - Firefox complete reinstall (registry included) - did not worked
    - IPv6 diseabling - did not worked
    - diferent proxy options (no proxy, system proxy, autodetect proxy) - did not worked
    - new firefox profile - did not worked
    - complete coockies, history... deleted - did not worked
    - there is only one solution which partly works - I have used public proxy addresses for Firefox but the ping is (750ms), down/up (0.8MB/0.2MB originaly (10MB/2MB) and yes I have tried different proxy server from different countries from my included.
    - IE is working perfectly and without proxy
    - other companies browser - did not worked too
    - only IE is working
    - I have used three different malware, trojans, spyware, anti-virus programs and nothing
    It seems to me as hopeless situation or very clever move from Microsoft, I am forced to use IE - at least this works
    Any ideas, solutions?
    System Windows 7, firewall Comodo Internet security

  • My MacBook pro is running very slow and unresponsive.

    My MacBook pro is running very slow and unresponsive. I have mid 2010 model running on lion. Past few days it looks very unresponsive. Tried to reinstall lion as clean copy. Still no luck. Any help on this is much appreciated !
    My model has 4 gb ram.

    Things That Can Keep Your Computer From Slowing Down
    If your computer seems to be running slower here are some things you can do:
    Boot into Safe Mode then repair your hard drive and permissions:
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions Pre-Lion
    Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    Repair the Hard Drive - Lion
    Boot from your Lion Recovery HD. When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported, then click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu. Select Restart from the Apple menu.
    Boot to the Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Restart your computer normally and see if this has helped any. Next do some maintenance:
    Suggestions for OS X Maintenance
    For situations Disk Utility cannot handle the best third-party utility is Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption; Disk Warrior 4.x is now Intel Mac compatible.
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.) If this isn't the case, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced since Tiger.  These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard or Lion and should not be installed.
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive. As for virus protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. You can protect the computer easily using the freeware Open Source virus protection software ClamXAV. Personally I would avoid most commercial anti-virus software because of their potential for causing problems. For more about malware see Macintosh Virus Guide.
    I would also recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc.
    For emergency repairs install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. There is no confirmation that this version also works with Lion.
    When you install any new system software or updates be sure to repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand.
    Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    Data Backup
    Deja Vu
    SuperDuper!
    SyncTwoFolders
    Synk Pro
    Synk Standard
    Tri-Backup
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance, optimization, virus protection, and backup and restore.
    Additional suggestions will be found in Mac Maintenance Quick Assist.
    Referenced software can be found at CNet Downloads or MacUpdate.
    Additional Hints
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity as free space.
    Add more RAM. If your computer has less than 2 GBs of RAM and you are using OS X Leopard or later, then you can do with more RAM. Snow Leopard and Lion work much better with 4 GBs of RAM than their system minimums. The more concurrent applications you tend to use the more RAM you should have.
    Always maintain at least 15 GBs or 10% of your hard drive's capacity as free space, whichever is greater. OS X is frequently accessing your hard drive, so providing adequate free space will keep things from slowing down.
    Check for applications that may be hogging the CPU:
    Open Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder.  Select All Processes from the Processes dropdown menu.  Click twice on the CPU% column header to display in descending order.  If you find a process using a large amount of CPU time, then select the process and click on the Quit icon in the toolbar.  Click on the Force Quit button to kill the process.  See if that helps.  Be sure to note the name of the runaway process so you can track down the cause of the problem.
    Often this problem occurs because of a corrupted cache or preferences file or an attempt to write to a corrupted log file.

  • Since I updated to os X 10.8.4 Safari is very slow and crashes

    I just updated to os X 10.8.4, and since then safari 6.0.5 is very slow, websites like youtube take forever to load, and I have problems opening new tabs.
    I hope someone can help me.
    P.S. Sorry for my english, not my first language.

    Do you get a notice that Safari has quit unexpectedly? If so, please do the following.
    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.
