FRM-92095 Oracle Jinitiator version too low: Disable JRE 1.7 Auto-Update for All E-Business Suite and Oracle Forms End-Users

Oracle Support is telling all Forms and EBS users to urgently disable auto-update of the JRE on your end users’ PC. If you have Auto-Update enabled, your JRE 1.6 version will be updated to JRE 7. This may happen as early as July 3, 2012. This will definitely happen after Sept. 7, 2012, after the release of 1.6.0_35 (6u35).

Unfortunately, Oracle Forms is not compatible with JRE 7 yet AND JRE 7 has not been certified with Oracle E-Business Suite yet. Basically, all Oracle E-Business Suite functionality based on Forms — e.g. Financials — will stop working if you upgrade to JRE 7.
