Hi,

I'm preparing for an interview. I found these from some of the topic questions. The last time I used Oracle Forms/Reports was more than 2 years ago. My computer does not have a Personal Oracle so I can at least see the Help file, nor do I have yet the books to refer to.

5. What is the number of records buffered and Query array size properties of data block
6. What is the difference between object libraries and object groups
7. What is the difference between PL/SQL library and object library
8. What is the difference between pre-text-item and when-new-item-instance triggers

16. which are the triggers will fire in the following situation:

I have three text items

1. Pre-text-item
2. When-validate-item
3. When-new-item-instance
4. Key-next-item
5. Post-text-item
6. Post-change

If I press tab or enter key at text-item1 what are the triggers will fire and order of firing during the entire navigation.
