  • How to create a session by AppsLocalLogin.jsp

    first, in auth.jsp we check fnd_global.user_name against "ANONYMOUS" to see whether user is logged on.
    if not, we invoke AppsLocalLogin.jsp to create a session.
    the login page shows, page re-directed to report.jsp.
    however fnd_global.user_name doesn't work. it still returns "ANONYMOUS".
    if user logged on OA normally, then the whole thing worked. it seems fnd_global.user_name doesn't like the way we login.
    how should we invoke AppsLocalLogin.jsp so it'll create a proper session?
    part of report.jsp:
    WebAppsContext ctx =WebRequestUtil.validateContext(request, response);
    conn = ctx.getJDBCConnection();
    sql = "select fnd_global.user_name from dual";
    (we tried to invoke RF.jsp instead.
    doesn't work because we don't know how to pass the param1 to report.jsp thru RF.jsp)

    This is variable what is working in my aplication
    String variable;
    if(user == null){
                   user=new String("");
         }//if you don'y do this you will have null pointer exception
    session.setAttribute("user",user);//put value

    hi ram,
    as i mentioned i m creating hidden variables & i m doing some validation on form submit.
    The following is js code snippet for validation.
    for (var i = 0; i < document.forms[0].admissionRank.length; i++)
    admissionRank = document.forms[0].admissionRank.value;
    for(var j = 0; j < document.forms[0].allAdmissionRank.length; j++)
    //alert ("admissionRank : " + admissionRank + " document.forms[0].allAdmissionRank[" + j + "].value : " + document.forms[0].allAdmissionRank[j].value + "\ndocument.forms[0].allApplicantID[" + j + "].value : " + document.forms[0].allApplicantID[j].value + " document.forms[0].applicantID[" + i + "].value : " + document.forms[0].applicantID[i].value);
    if(admissionRank == document.forms[0].allAdmissionRank[j].value && document.forms[0].allApplicantID[j].value != document.forms[0].applicantID[i].value && admissionRank != "" && document.forms[0].allAdmissionRank[j].value != "")
    flag = false;
    if (flag == false)
    In this validation i want admissionRank to be removed from the original arraylist if following condition gets satisfied

  • How to use a session variable in Conditional Format?

    Hi Gurus,
    I created a session variable , called Actual_date,
    using the following SELECT:
    In a report title the following expression worked fine:
    I red in a reply in this forum, under the
    "Oracle BI EE Variables Overview"
    that we can use the above format in Cond.Format.
    However I got an error:
    "The value entered msut date and Time..."
    Any tips?

    It's because when you fired
    SELECT SYSDATE FROM DUALYour variable have a LONGVARCHAR type (if I remember)
    Check here how to find the data type.
    If you just need to get the current date, you can try the system presentation variable current time as :
    @{system.currentTime} Good luck

  • How to create a global variable in forms 6i

    How to create a global variable in forms 6i

    :GLOBAL.my_var := 15; Well, this statement is not correct! Global variables
    stores a character string of up to 255 characters in
    length. Thus, valid statement for Khurram example
    :GLOBAL.my_var := TO_CHAR(15);
    :GLOBAL.my_var := '15';
    But numeric values are implicitly converted by oracle so there's nothing in fact wrong with the statement...
    :GLOBAL.my_var := 15;

    How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
    Eric Steven Raymond
    Rick Moen
    Write in clear, grammatical, correctly-spelled language
    We've found by experience that people who are careless and sloppy writers are usually also careless and sloppy at thinking and coding (often enough to bet on, anyway). Answering questions for careless and sloppy thinkers is not rewarding; we'd rather spend our time elsewhere.
    So expressing your question clearly and well is important. If you can't be bothered to do that, we can't be bothered to pay attention. Spend the extra effort to polish your language. It doesn't have to be stiff or formal ? in fact, hacker culture values informal, slangy and humorous language used with precision. But it has to be precise; there has to be some indication that you're thinking and paying attention.
    Spell, punctuate, and capitalize correctly. Don't confuse "its" with "it's", "loose" with "lose", or "discrete" with "discreet". Don't TYPE IN ALL CAPS; this is read as shouting and considered rude. (All-smalls is only slightly less annoying, as it's difficult to read. Alan Cox can get away with it, but you can't.)
    More generally, if you write like a semi-literate b o o b you will very likely be ignored. So don't use instant-messaging shortcuts. Spelling "you" as "u" makes you look like a semi-literate b o o b to save two entire keystrokes.

    Can you please explain me how to create a Text variable...
    In my Cube i had 3 different date fields....
    and as per my requirment i need to create a rolling report for which will display data for 6 months rolling.
    As the date field which i need to use is not mapped to Time Char's (Cal Year,Cal Month...etc)
    For that reason i created below customer exit variable and used offset variables to achieve the rolling 6 months report
    Code used for Customer Exit VAriable:
    WHEN 'ZC_Cmonth1'. " Current Cal Month Car Expiry
    IF i_step = 2.
          CLEAR l_s_range.
    determine date
        LV_SYDAT     =  SY-DATUM.
        LV_YEAR_ACT  =  SY-DATUM+0(4).
        LV_MONTH_ACT =  SY-DATUM+4(2).
    Set begin date of intervall
    Set end date of intervall
    Fill ranges-tab with: include all values between beginning of year
    and actual date
      L_S_RANGE-SIGN = 'I'.
      L_S_RANGE-OPT  = 'BT'.
    Now i need to create TEXT VARIABLE that will display the Month Name in the column name
    Please update in detail step how to create a Text Variable

    In your specific requirement select the which ever the keyfigure you want  to analyse, go to edit mode of keyfigure propeties there select the newvariable type and create the Text variable by maintaining the proper offset start and length and also maintain the in whcih format u want see the month name in column headers.

  • How to set a session variable

    I would like to know how to set a session variable for the following purpose.
    At the top of my application I have a "Welcome <username>" I'd like it instead to have "Welcome <firstname> <lastname>".
    So the concept would be after the user logs in succesfully this session variable is dynamically set so it can be displayed.

    Hi Scott,
    I realize that I can set items etc in pages. The case I'm referring to is a reference in a template. My template has a "Welcome <user name>" ... so the code looks like "Welcome &APP_USER." Anyway to make it say "Welcome first_name last_name" in the template? Note I'll have to get the first/last names from a query
