Hi,
Our 'Oracle D2k CUI' application lies on unix box. Now we are gathering information to convert it into 10g Database and 10gDS Gui. I am Posting this topic after doing a good search. I also worked on 9iDS 2 year back. In this application we are using only Key navigation (key mapping) and not using cursor navigations.
# Can we give same look and functionality in 10gDS (to make our users less affected)?
# Can we disable all mouse functionalty on forms?
# If possible, can we hide mouse pointer also?
# can we implement key-mapping on forms (any document link)?
# How we can do remote printing of reports (In existing system a UK person can give print on India offices)?
# Do we need to make a change in Unix calls (by user_exit)?

If any one has idea... please suggest. This will really help us fix our stones.

1. Can we give same look and functionality in 10gDS (to make our users less affected)?
2. Can we disable all mouse functionalty on forms?
3. If possible, can we hide mouse pointer also?
4. can we implement key-mapping on forms (any document link)?
5. How we can do remote printing of reports (In existing system a UK person can give print on India offices)?
6. Do we need to make a change in Unix calls (by user_exit)?

0-Yes. Just try it and you will see that you can make them look very similar.
1-I don't think you can disable all mouse functionality but you can make all fields NOT mouse-navigable.
2-That is more a windows question. I don't think so.
3-Search this forum for 'keybinder.java', 'frmweb.res', and 'frmpcweb.res'.
4-How do you do it currently? If you can do it now then you have probably defined all the printers on your current server. You should be able to do the same thing from your new application server.
5-Probably not but you will have to test.

Oops! I missed the first question. Add an answer zero.

i am satisfied with David's view http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/95584/73200/.

Upd-mod: Link is no longer useful as I split and merged the original questions to this thread.
