From the Oracle point of view, you can use Oracle Forms/Reports or you can use Oracle's WebDB. The first tool is a GUI based development tool like Access/FileMaker. The second tool is a web-based database manager, which includes the possibility to create web-based forms/reports.

To compare, the first tool is used for serious application development, the second one is used for of-the-shelf simple form/report development.
