Running Banner Forms using JNLP - Runaway jp2launcher.exe Process

Explains how to run Banner Forms using JNLP.

What is the Cause of the Problem?

The current version of Oracle Forms that is supported by Banner Forms in our production environment has a bug, that does not properly close out the Banner JNLP process that runs after the Java Web Start launch on local workstations when you exit the application.  Restarting your machine daily will clean up these runaway processes, or you can do the steps below.


Step 1:  Start up the Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and choosing the "Start Task Manager" option from the desktop.


Step 2:  In the Windows Task Manager, click on the "Processes" Tab.  Click on the "jp2launcher.exe" to highlight it.  Then click "End Process".


Step 3:  You are then prompted "Do you want to end 'jp2launcher.exe *32'?  Click "End process".


Repeat Steps 2 and 3 as many times as needed to end the Banner Forms processes that are still running.  Click the Red X, in the upper-right corner to close the task manager.
