Oracle Forms & Reports in Docker by Dirk Nachbar


As Robert Crames and me has developed some times ago a script set to install and configure Oracle Forms & Reports completely silent and unattended, the next step was for me to port this all to Docker 😉

§ Part 1:

§ Part 2:

Oracle has a really good GitHub Repository ( with several Oracle Products, but no Docker Image for Oracle Forms & Reports 😦 So I spent some time and managed to port our above mentioned script set for Oracle Forms & Reports to build a Docker image for Oracle Forms & Reports.
The complete set of Docker build files and a docker-compose sample can be found under my GitHub Repository
My solution is mainly based on Oracle Images, but very modified:

§ OracleJava:

§ instead of pulling an oraclelinux:7-slim, I am using an oraclelinux:latest.

§ instead of using an Oracle Server JRE, I am using an Oracle JDK

§ OracleFMWInfrastructure:

§ within this Image, which is based on the above OracleJava Image, I am installing all required RPM’s for Oracle Forms & Reports, eg. motif, compat-libstdc++-33 and so on and implementing the fix directly for Oracle Reports
