Mix of Old & New style buttons in OA Framework pages

After some heavy patches applied on our system we noticed that some buttons in OAF pages looks like the old style gray buttons while the others are fine new style yellow buttons.

For example:


(The "Advanced" is the old style and all the others are the new style)

Trying to clear cache ($COMMON_TOP/_pages) and bounce Apache didn't solve the problem.

The solution is hiding within

  1. Edit $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/
  2. Change the following to TRUE:
  3. (optional) Clear all content from $OA_HTML/cabo/images/cache (e.g rm -rf $OA_HTML/cabo/images/cache)
  4. (optional) Clear all content from $COMMON_TOP/_pages
  5. Bounce Apache

And the problem will be resolved...


In order to make this change permanent, you should update the Application context file as follow, otherwise next run of AutoConfig will overwrite your change.

  1. Edit $APPL_TOP/admin/$CONTEXT_NAME.xml
  2. Change the following to:
    <java_awt_headless oa_var="s_java_awt_headless">true</java_awt_headless>
  3. Run AutoConfig on Apps Tier.
  4. Bounce Apache
