Compiling JSP files automatically and manually in R12

In R12 Application we can compile JSP files
1)Automatically or
Below are some useful steps to do the compilation of JSP files:

1)Automatic JSP files compilation:

Command to complie jsp files automatically has some changes compared to 11i (See metalink notes 458338.1):

2)Manual JSP files compilation:
Preparatory Step: Set the Oracle Application environment.
# su - applmgr
$ cd /oraAPP/apps/apps_st

We can follow below steps to compile a single jsp file (seeded or custom) in Oracle Applications 11i/R12.

1)Copy the jsp file to $COMMON_TOP/webapps/oacore/html (this location translates to $OA_HTML):

Note:We can use 'winscp' to copy the jsp file from windows to linux in a frequent manner each time.

Placing the file under $OA_HTML enables end users to access the file using the url http://hostname.domain:port/OA_HTML/[jspfile.jsp]

2)Give ownership and permission for 'applmgr'(Application file system owner) to compile jsp file.

#chown applmgr:dba /oraAPP/apps/apps_st/comn/webapps/oacore/html/test1.jsp
#chmod -R 755 /oraAPP/apps/apps_st/comn/webapps/oacore/html/test1.jsp

3) Flush and Compile the jsp file using 'applmgr' user:
# su - applmgr
$ cd $OAH_TOP/html =>location of all jsp files

-bash-3.2$ /oraAPP/apps/apps_st/appl/fnd/12.0.0/patch/115/bin/ --compile --flush -p 2
logfile set: /oraAPP/inst/apps/VIS_kor300949v20ebs/logs/appl/rgf/ojsp/ojspc_error.log

cd $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin
perl --compile --flush -p 2

cd %FND_TOP%\patch\115\bin
perl -x –compile –flush

4)Restart the Middle Tier(applications) services:

For Stopping the Middle-Tier services in R12:

-bash-3.2$ cd $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME
-bash-3.2$ ./
Enter the APPS username: apps

Enter the APPS password:
The logfile for this session is located at /oraAPP/inst/apps/TESTDB_TESTNODEebs/logs/appl/admin/log/adstpall.log

For Starting the Middle-Tier Services in R12:

-bash-3.2$ ./

You are running version 120.15

Enter the APPS username: apps

Enter the APPS password:
The logfile for this session is located at /oraAPP/inst/apps/TESTDB_TESTNODEebs/logs/appl/admin/log/adstrtal.log

Once the Middle-Tier services are started successfully,We have to check the URL for JSP file.

5)Verify the URL:

The URL format will be as given below:

Hope it helps...

Happy Apps DBA learning.
