Why do we need Oracle 10g Forms to be hooked up to Oracle 11i application server.
Posted on 2008-10-04
I have doubt and I thought of getting a clarification from you guys.
The problem is as follows:
My company earlier used to maintain records for display and storage purpose using Oracle portal. But now it seems Oracle support to Oracle Portal is being limited. Hence my company asked our team to develop a strategy to face problems that would arise.
My manager said we will upgrade the entire system using Oracle 10g forms (i,e., using Oracle 10g database) and he says once the system is upgraded by using Oracle Forms and Oracle 10g database we shall hook up these forms to Oracle 11i Application server.
Now my question are :
1. Why to upgrade the system by using Oracle 10g forms when we have Oracle 11i apps server with us which already have built in forms ( as per my understanding) that can be used for this purpose?
2. When database is on Oracle 10g Server and Forms are also on 10g Server, how he will hook up the forms to Oracle 11i Apps Server?
3.Why he is not going on with 10g server alone and why is he bringing 11i apps server into picture?
It would be very helpful if you can explain me in detail and also rpovide me with relavent links where I can find the materil on the net. Please I need the explanation on this because I am a starter and I am not able to understand what my manager is exactly going to do.
Hope to get a reply from you soon.
