CIT recommends adding a security site exception for the production Banner Forms service in Java to prevent problems associated with expired certificates for Oracle Forms.


These steps are not necessary for Banner 9. Banner 9 no longer requires Java on the client computer.

As of 5/22/2019 there are a half-dozen or so Banner 8 INB forms that haven't yet been converted to Banner 9. So some users are still using Banner 8.

  1. Read the following java.com article for steps to add a security exception.
