After an upgrade of Oracle Enterprise Manager from 184.108.40.206 to 13.2, I wanted to deploy a new version of the plugin oracle.sysman.db. Downloaded the new version and got to the plugin-management page to apply the patch. But all I got was a blank page. Cost me quite a while to figure out what the – almost humiliating – workaround / solution eventually was.
Problem: when running form modules using Internet Explorer and JInitiator 1.3.1.x, the browser window opens and crashes immediately before the applet starts. When using Mozilla Firefox, there’s no problem at all.
Several notes on Metalink about this: 602001.1, 430359.1, 550301.1
The issue does not occur when using Sun JRE version 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.
