<servlet_comment oa_var="s_forms_servlet_comment"/>

<forms_connect oa_var="s_frmConnectMode">https</forms_connect>

B)In Socket mode the context file values looks like the following:


<server_url oa_var="s_forms_servlet_serverurl"/>

<servlet_comment oa_var="s_forms_servlet_comment">#</servlet_comment>

<forms_connect oa_var="s_frmConnectMode">socket</forms_connect>
