I recall something about Forms/Reports and installation on 10g OC4J [Quoted] (that would be the minimal install of the App Server) - better contact your Oracle Rep, and make sure to ask specific questions, and point out the consequence: no sale! :)

[Quoted] [Quoted] For new developments: why don't you look at Application Express? Current version does graphics and PDF at no extra cost - can use the Apache by Oracle as delivered with the database - same licence, no extra cost. Received on Fri Apr 21 2006 - 12:05:48 CEST
