In this post, we will see an overview about all the knowledge learned in the Lisbon summer camp – Mobile section. There we go:

Building AuraPlayer web Services

First, we created REST web services to manage the Forms summit application using AuraPlayer’s Service Manager. We used IE to launch the summit Forms.

We created several services, pushing the button “record services.

Then we defined the service name an the form URL. The URL form is connected to a Forms Server where AuraPlayer is installed. We have some options that we can use on AuraPlayer Manager in the record time. Read the complete article here.

The idea for this OTN ArchBeat podcast was suggested by Oracle ACE Director Mia Urman, a self-described Oracle Forms fanatic. According to Mia, developers have been building mission-critical systems in Oracle Forms for decades, and many organizations have huge investments in these systems. These organizations are now looking for ways to bring these investments forward into mobile, cloud, and other next-generation technologies.

This represents an huge opportunity for experts in relevant Oracle technologies. The discussion captured in this podcast addresses some of the available modernization strategies in order to provide guidance for those who want to take advantage of that opportunity. Mia also selected the panelists for this discussion.

The Conversation

· Listen to Part 1: Many mission-critical applications built on Oracle Forms need to be brought into the 21st century. What are the options?

· Listen to Part 2: A discussion of use cases illustrating modernization strategies for Oracle Forms applications.

· Listen to Part 3: A discussion of how Mobile and other factors that are driving the need for the modernization of Oracle Forms applications.

Listen to Part 4: What factors will affect decisions around the selection of a strategy for modernizing Oracle Forms applications. Listen to the podcasts here

Oracle Forms, as technology, underpins tens of thousands of applications across the globe and in particular in the Nordic region if you pay tax, use the railways, eat fish, use a phone, transport goods by truck, book into a hotel or even if you furnish your home with particular brand of popular furniture then in all likelihood there is an Oracle Forms system keeping that business running.

Whilst we all recognize the importance of stable data-driven enterprise applications we can’t fail to recognize that mobile devices dominate our personal lives; and through a process of osmosis, those mobile demands are more and more finding their way into our day-to-day Enterprise IT systems.

So what might mobile IT bring to the party? Could you improve your business by taking your current, traditional processes out of the back office and into the hands of users at the point they need it? Can you still use the IT assets and services that underpin your core business, but surface them to users in a modern mobile user experience? What are the components of a successful mobile strategy?

I’m pleased to confirm that the Oracle User Groups in Denmark and Finland will be hosting me speaking at dedicated events in November on Mobile, on how you can reuse existing IT assets such as Oracle Forms. Each session will explore the mobile "art of the possible" and introduce the technologies that underpin a successful mobile architecture. The agenda will follow:

  • User Group Introduction
  • Oracle Forms State of the Union (Michael Ferrante, via webinar)
  • Why Mobile is Important
  • Oracle Forms and Mobile: The art of the possible
  • Building a successful mobile architecture
  • Customer stories
  • Open discussion and Q&A

The roadshow will continue in the new year (January) with events in Sweden and Norway. To register to attend this event, please click the link below.

  • 29th November, DOUG, Denmark, Oracle Ballerup
  • 30th November, OUGF, Finland, Radisson Blue Seaside Hotelli, Helsinki

Forms is not dead. 15 years ago I heard that Oracle Forms has no future.15 years later, Oracle Forms 12c is here.
If your strategy is to keep Forms in place for protecting your investments and you are convinced that Forms will continue to support your business, this article could be of interest for you.
Do you have a digital transformation strategy while maintaining Oracle Forms at the heart of your information systems?
For answering the question "How to modernize an Oracle Forms application for my business ?" we do have a lot of approaches and solutions.
In this article I would like to share a "concept" for integrating Oracle Cloud Services within an Oracle Forms application. 
Oracle Cloud Services, however different by functionality and scope, share a common feature: accessibility via REST APIs.
I would like to show how to integrate Oracle Document Cloud Service (DOCS) within my Oracle Forms application. For doing this, I use the REST APIs provided by DOCS.
Forms is a GUI solution using SQL and PL/SQL. When we want to consume some REST APIs from Forms, we often use a PL/SQL approach. The last Oracle Database 12c gained a lot of improvements for exposing and consuming services via REST APIs. In the context of REST APIs we can use an alternative approach for Oracle Forms : Java, for example, or Javascript. I’m using Java for many years but recently I discovered that Javascript is pretty cool to use:
– It’s easy to learn.
– Libraries! Javascript has libraries for everything. Literally. You can build a complete mobile website in a day using JQuery mobile.
– Speed: Javascript is fast. A Javascript client side reduces load on the server.
– Ajax: Every web developer knows and loves Ajax.
For developing with Javascript I chose Oracle JET. JET stands for Javascript Extension Toolkit.
Oracle JET is targeted at intermediate to advanced JavaScript developers working on client-side applications. It’s a collection of open source JavaScript libraries along with a set of Oracle contributed JavaScript libraries that make it as simple and efficient as possible to build applications that consume and interact with Oracle products and services, especially Oracle Cloud services.
I’m using Oracle JET for embedding Oracle Forms and for extending Oracle Forms with the power of Javascript.

Oracle JET makes use of some popular Open Source libraries.

Oracle JET uses RequireJS. RequireJS is a JavaScript file and module loader that makes it easier to manage library references and is designed to improve the speed and quality of your code.
I have created the module "oracleforms" for managing the integration of Oracle Forms inside Oracle JET. Read the complete article here.
