Hi Friends,
I am basically a PL/SQL developer but now I am going to work with Forms 10g in a few days. Long back I have worked with Forms 9i but I have never worked with Oracle 10g forms and so here to take your help in addition to the google work I do.


Can any one of you let me know the basic architecture difference in any between Oracle 9i Forms and Oracle 10g Forms.

Can any one of you tell me in detail the basic difference that we can observe when working with Oracle Forms 9i and Oracle Forms 10g.

Any material where I can learn and have some basic knowledge of Oracle forms 10g.

It will be helpful if you can explain me in detail else if you can send me the links where I can find some details of the above said topics. Hope you would do the needful.
Thanks,
Vamsi K Gummadi.

Pretty much anything you want to know about Oracle Forms 10g can be found on their website at http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/forms/index.html

Others may have a different idea, but for me, the only difference between 9i and 10g is that webutil is builtin and the whole product, in terms of web stuff and Java, works better. That is, getting 9i to run in 2003/2004 was a bitch but running 10g in 2008 is okay.

Hi David,

I can add little to that which I have already said.

Oracle Forms 9i shipped without the webutil product and it had to be downloaded and installed manually. It is now downloaded and installed with Forms 10g as part of the installation process. You still have to do a bit of configuration setting but the documentation for 10g is way more comprehensive than that which shipped with the first version of 9i.

I can't give an illustration as it was mainly due to not having documentation saying what to do with the new configuration of Developer Server and Application Server. The documentation that did not exist with the initial version of 9i now exists and as such is no longer 'not there'.

Perhaps the main problems we had were 'cyclic' references in PLL files (no biggy) and that Oracle directed developers to convert 'run_product' to 'run_report_object' instead of 'web.show_document'.
