How to use gdb command to analyze core file generated from Oracle application

We tried to use gdb -c core but it throws the error message as below :
----------------------------------------
warning: Unknown symbols for 'core'; use the 'symbol-file' command
Core was generated by `f60webmx'.
Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.
-----------------------------------------

This core is generated on Oracle E_busines suite form server. Kindly advice how to use gdb command to already generated core from Oracle E_Business suite ?
Thank you.

Re: How to use gdb command to analyze core file generated from Oracle application

You have to provide both the executable and corefile name to gdb:
gdb executable core

Your executable is f60webmx but you need to find the absolute or relative path.
Once you get that, you can get a stack trace with "bt".

Where there any abort messages to stderr?
