If ever Oracle had a synapse-free brain-dead product that deserved to be buried in an unmarked grave ... Oracle Graphics was it. I built one application using it back in the 90's and after treatment for post-traumatic stress and a 12 step program gave it up.
Oracle's newer reporting products are a huge improvement. Heck almost everybody's reporting tools are a huge improvement.
