Hi all,

We have an application written with Oracle Forms 5.0 and report builder 3.05. We are using Oracle 8i as a database. We have around 50 forms and 10 reports.

I'm in a process of analysing and evaluating to upgrade/migrate or rewrite this application with a new tool in order to convert it on a web application.

I have made few search and i found these 2 choices:
- Migrate this application to Oracle Forms 9i or 10g


- Convert this application to ASP.NET with a tool provided by ATX Software: http://forms2net.atxsoftware.com/site/Welcome.do

Based on your knowledge and experience, I would like to have a better idea about this issue.

Which method is the best in matter of cost (time & effort) and performance ? and what do you recommend ?

Please, do not hesitate to give me any another recommendation.

I really appreciate your help.

There's a company that will covert Forms to Java and give you UML to boot. They did for the USAF. See www.aftermath-inc.com.
They use full automation and guarantee same functionality. Use code CM705 if you contact them. It tells em how you got their name.

Converting to Forms 9/10 will also work. If you have PL/SQL experience in your shop then you will be able to use them in the future. If you go ASP .Net then you either have to get new people or retrain those that you have currently.
