Hi,

I have extensively worked on forms 6i and reports 6i. Now a days everyone is talking about developing applications in Java and .Net.

<QUERY>
If I have to submit a proposal so what product suit should I propose if I have to develop the web applications in Oracle Forms and Reports.

Thanks in advance

I work in DB admin. I hate developers! Actually, no - I hate developers who (a) don't talk to their DBA or (b) insist on working with Java. Java applications are slow to develop, impossible to maintain, and (for reasons that I do not understand) often use the database in the most horrible ways possible. Use Apex instead. The developers I work with say that the Apex environment is more productive and more functional than anything else available. The only aspect of Apex that worries me is that since the ORDS listener appeared, I'm seeing people invoking web services in their Apex applications, and I do not see the need for this.

I can't comment on .Net.

Apologies, my question is misunderstood. I am trying to make it more clear:

I want to develop a Web Application in D2K is it possible with the new version of D2K.

Tx in advance

It is possible in your current version, release 6i. For a new deployment, you'll need to use the Fusion Middleware forms implementtion.

Have a look at this message I posted a while ago; it contains links to documents that describe how to deploy your Forms 6i application to web. Personally, I'd still use Apex (and not .Net or whichever other technology you think of) because you already know Oracle so taking a step from Forms to Apex takes MUCH less effort than learning any other (new) technology.

Note that it will still be the old Forms application; it'll only run in your Internet browser, instead of being a client-server oriented. It'll look like Forms, it'll feel like Forms. Apex, on the other hand, looks much more like a "modern" and "up to date" application once you make it.

If you're interested in it, create a free account at apex.oracle.com and try it.

On the other hand, it's entirely up on you. We can only share our thoughts, while the final decision is yours.

If you already know Oracle Forms, stick to it and upgrade to the latest 12c release.

PS: Unlike earlier releases, Forms 12c doesn't require a web browser any more. With Java Web Start it can be deployed as a fully browser-less solution.
