I am trying to play an audio file (as part of the new Oracle 12c forms feature using PLAY_AUDIO built in) for a specific form that is launched. This is for Proof of Concept.

This is what we have done:

a) recorded a file and named it as po.mp3
b) gave the file to middleware who then signed it into a jar file (as mentioned in the new features document). These were his words "The file is accessible from /apps/retail/base/12c/icons on the server, or http://srv-fm1:7777/forms/icons/audio.jar"
c) based on the above, I called the file in WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE as :

 PLAY_AUDIO('po.mp3'); 
This resulted in no luck.

so tried:
PLAY_AUDIO('http://srv-fm1:7777/forms/icons/audio.jar/po.mp3'); 
Even this resulted in no luck.
Is there anything else that needs to be done that is missing? Please advice.

Thanks in advance!

Did you turn the speakers ON?



Just kidding.

Oracle says that "this feature is not fully supported when using early versions of Java 7 on the client tier. Therefore, using Java 8 is recommended.". So - do you have Java 8?

There is Java 8 at work and also at home.

One good news is that I tried all the steps mentioned by Oracle (on my home computer this morning) and I was able to play back the audio file. Unfortunately this is not the case at work. Not sure why?
Anyway I have mentioned all the steps taken at the following URL:

Thanks a lot Littlefoot!

I'm glad you made it work; though, it would be better if you succeeded it at work as well. I hope you will!
