    You can have much better interface with delphi, using the built in components that ship with delphi or with more advanced one from third party companies

    aslo Delphi offers you more technologies to use, if you would add internet, network, webservices, multimedia and any other type of software you can do that easily with Delphi

    also Delphi can use many type of database easily

    on the other side, I haven't used designer, but worked with FormBuilder/ReportBuilder to develop for oracle DB
    it's more easier to build using Oracle developers tools, but you will have more limitaion

    Designer as I heard make the things more easier, but you still have the same limiation

    and one of the big limiations is the delpoying, you have to install form/report run time to be able to run the oracle forms and reports

    with Delphi you can Deploy only the .Exe file and will work without require any other files(depend of the database components that you will use)

    I haven't used Oracle Froms since three years, but still all most of my application developing using Delphi and Oracle database
