Hello everyone !

We have a software, which uses an ORACLE database (19C), and an Oracle Forms interface which runs on an Oracle Fusion Middleware server (12.2.1.4).
All this works on an internal network, but we want to develop mobile applications (for smartphones, tablets, ...) in order to add new
features to our software. For this, we have chosen to study the possibility of using WINDEV MOBILE.
On the other hand, we are beginners in the field of mobile applications, and we ask ourselves the question of the servers to be put in place to develop this solution.
In order to access the Oracle database from an application, for example on Android, what do we need? Oracle Database Mobile Server? The WINDEV WEBSERVICE program?
Both ?
Can anyone shed some light on this? Smile

Thank you !

Welcome to the forum.
Please read the OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.

The developers I work with would probably say that you should expose the application to the internet as a web service. Or if all you need is SQL access to the database, use REST-enabled SQL:

This may be a long read, but very much worth the effort of reading them all (start with the linked one and read them in order of posting dates)
http://thehelsinkideclaration.blogspot.com/2009/03/helsinki-declaration-observation-1.html

In this, Toon explains the role of the database in applications, how to use it and how to prepare for the fact that in two years time you will move away from <whatever UI framework you choose now> to <the then hot UI framework>
