Like comedy reruns from the '80s, Oracle Forms is still out there; refusing to be relegated by a faithful following who should know better and who have invested many years of energy into it. Its partner in client/server crime Oracle Reports has now retired to its hobby farm, but Forms - that silver-haired old fox - can still be seen at the bar, embarrassing itself among the hipster crowd of contemporary developer frameworks.
Come and hear all about Forms 12c; Oracle's latest incarnation, and what you need to know should you need to keep 'old faithful' in milk and honey for a few years yet. Some of it may surprise you. Some of it may amuse you. At the very least you may get a free lunch.
Dennis Remmer - Principal Consultant for LogicalTech, Oracle ACE in Fusion Middleware, and former National President of the Australian Oracle User Group - is more commonly engaged in integration and development using SOA, BPM, WebCenter and cloud-based iPaaS, but he continues to discover pockets of Oracle Forms, Discoverer, Reports and Portal which - not unlike the Short-tailed Albatross - were thought extinct but are in fact very much alive.
