Sun JRE instead of Jinitiator with Forms and Webutil

Running Forms and Webutil with Sun Java 5.0.6 instead of Jinitiator.

And you know what:  it’s faster and has more functionality I’ve been told…
First you need the java-file. In this case: jre15006.exe.

Initially I found it hard to find on the site of Sun – didn’t even know the name of the file I was looking for…
Found it at http://www.muangyacctv.com/download/JAVA but if you keep searching the Sun-website, you will find it here:
