Frank Nimphius talks about disabling Forms builder security in 10g

Frank has added quite an - (broken link) interesting entry to his web log early this morning. This entry discusses an issue with Forms Builder in 10g. Now when a Forms application is run from within the IDE the URL no longer contains the database username and password. This was a security issue for customers in previous versions. Frank suggests a way for allow the old functionality to be used if customers so wish.

For those of us who are interested in securing Oracle, applications and developer tools then its worth adding the registry variable Frank suggests to our check lists.
