I've an application that developed by Oracle 6i and Oracle Forms Developer.
I'm planning to convert the application to MySQL with php.
I found a migration tool to migrate the database.
But i'm no idea to migrate the interface that developed in Oracle Forms Developer to php and html.
Is it possible to do it?

Thanks your helpful.

    Hello Silmeria,

    I am not sure if it is possible to convert Oracle Forms to PHP / MySQL but you can use your Oracle database directly with PHP and Zend is currently offering Oracle Core for PHP at no charge that provides an optimized PHP enviroment for working with ORACLE. I have been using this with Oracle XE.

    Good Luck,

    I have not done this sort of a port. Have you looked for some help in the Oracle area as well?
