Dear Experts,

We have implemented Oracle Apps (E-Business Suite) in our organization. The server is sitting in the Head Office, to which we are connected through VPN.

I am developing a VB6 application at our office. I want to use Oracle Apps user id and password to be validated from VB. I don't want to create separate table for user id and password. I want to use existing login information for Oracle Apps in my application.

The user will enter Oracle apps User ID and Password in my VB form. The application will use Oracle Apps in-built function to validate it, and return TRUE or FALSE to my VB application.

How to achieve this ?

You can call function fnd_web_sec.validate_login(<UserName>,<Password>). If it returns TRUE => Password Valid.
