The first question is what skill set are you bringing to the party? Do you already know SQL and PL/SQL or are you a complete novice?
If you don't know SQL and PL/SQL a realistic time frame is six months without an instructor and probably 2-3 months with one.
Do you understand object oriented development concepts? Oracle Forms is intended to be used in a manner in which inheritance and polymorphism and the foremost concept. Unless one wants to make a mess of things one starts about by defining visual attribute groups and pproperty classes. Then one creates a form consisting, perhaps, of multiple windows with multiple canvases, then creates objects inheriting and morphing from the attributes and classes.
A decent form will also, undoubtedly, involve extensive use of record groups, LOVs, and triggers and just learning the various triggers and when they are appropriate and their firing order is a topic unto itself.
So in answer to your question ... months of constant study. Can someone build a form in less time? Absolutely. Will it likely be inefficient and "dangerous" undoubtedly.
