How to make a bot that enters data into oracle forms launched from IE

  • 1.  How to make a bot that enters data into oracle forms launched from IE

    Hi,

    I have a client that requires a POC for IBM WDG to help in entering data into oracle forms system.
    The bot should be invoked via REST API to enter data into oracle forms, the trick is that this oracle form is launched by JInitiator plugin in Internet Explorer, so URL is entered into IE which launches the oracle forms through the JInitiator plugin, therefore my question is how to access the oracle form and how to select and access its fields using IBM WDG, even if I try to use the Windows utilities in the WDG, it requires a normal executable path for the windows desktop application like "C:\\Windows\\notepad.exe" for example which is not the case here.
    Anyway, any ideas or directions to follow?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Mahmoud, I believe you can automate the steps using the attach window command or find and attach window command. Let me know if that is able to move you forward.
