I'm not familiar with Oracle Forms. Is there a demo app on the Internet that we can play with to test login macro recording? Have you tried using a session-based macro? How does the browser applet communicate with the server? Is it using standard HTTP or some other out-of-band socket traffic? It's possible, you may need to manually crawl the site and let WebInspect audit the site from that point.
I am in a similar situation where I have to record a macro for the login/logout site which requires java plugins. When I try to record a macro it uses the default firefox to record a macro and asks to download the plugin. WOuld you advice if there are any settings that needs to be done for the macro recording for the site that requires java plugins?
When the browser requires plugins, you will most likely have trouble using either the Firefox-based (3.x) or the IE-based Web Macro Recorder that comes in WebInspect 10.10. Future releases should update that Firefox to use a modern version. For sites requiring plugins, I would switch to the Web Proxy and record the macro from your actual browser with that.
