  7. 7.  toolssod-3-129969.pdf toolssod-3-129969.pdfWhat Oracle say:  The cost of shifting current and legacy applications into ADF is huge, so don’t worry about existing application just shift on latest release of Oracle Forms, so companies can avail latest benefits.  Build New applications in ADF  Develop new reports using BI Publisher EE  Both can run on Weblogic Fusion Middleware AS.
  8. 8.  Oracle Forms and Reports, components of Oracle Fusion Middleware, are Oracles long established technologies These are used to design and build enterprise applications quickly and efficiently Oracle remains committed to the development of these technologies and to their future release as components of the Oracle platform Oracle Forms and Reports enables you to leverage your existing investment by easily upgrading and integrating existing Oracle Forms and Reports applications to 11g to take advantage of web technologies and service oriented architectures (SOA)
  9. 9.  Oracle’s Classic Development Tools  Oracle Designer  Oracle Forms  Oracle Reports  PL/SQL Java Development Tools  Application Development Framework, (Oracle ADF)  Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BI Publisher)
  10. 10.  Standards-based environment Oracle ADF provide a set of tools and technologies Application delivery channels  Mobile  Web Services or Web2.0,  Oracle’s own Technologies
  11. 11.  Extensive business rules or UI control logic in the application itself Need integration with and access to Fusion Applications or other 3rd party applications Need access to features provided by Oracle Fusion Middleware, such as BPM, BIP, WebCenter, and SOA For larger scale deployments where most of the processing time is in the application, and scalability is achieved by adding multiple middle tiers General preference to use Java/JEE technologies

  13. 13.  Integrate Forms in SOA & BPM Environment Embed Forms in WEB 2.0 –UI Integration with ADF, and others modern Web technologies Render Forms to new platforms (render existing forms as they are to new platform such as mobile browsers) Migrate Forms to ADF, JHeadStart Pluggable Java Components PJC and Java Beans, third party widgets

  17. 17. External Events.This new feature is, in essence, support for the featurecalled Advanced Queuing (or AQ) available in alleditions of the Oracle Database since 8i. AQ is a verypowerful and robust asynchronous event solution. Thisfeature brings the possibility to communicate with aForms module from outside of Forms.
  18. 18.  WHEN-EVENT-RAISE Client Refresh (MAX_EVENT_WAIT) DBMS_AQ (Publish External Events) Variable := Get_event_object_property(‘myCustomEvent,EVENT_PAYLOAD)
  19. 19. Oracle Forms can now subscribe and react to externalevents that are published to the databases AdvancedQueuing (AQ) feature. Since many other technologiescan publish events to AQ (examples include JMS andBPEL), Forms can now interact with those technologiesin an asynchronous manner. Your Oracle Formsapplications can react to events outside Forms, as well asinteract with other Forms applications.
  20. 20. JavaScript.With the help of this new feature Forms can invokeJavaScript code available in the page from which theForms applet resides The reverse is also possible, that isyou can call into Forms from JavaScript..
  21. 21.  WEB.JAVASCRIPT_EVAL_EXPRWEB.JAVASCRIPT_EVAL_EXPR, is a procedure which takes two arguments: an expression and a target,both of data type varchar2. WEB.JAVASCRIPT_EVAL_FUNCTIONis a function and returns a varchar2 value. This call can be used to create a JavaScript function on-the-flyby passing in text that is legal JavaScript in the context in which the Forms applet executes.
  22. 22. New Enterprise Manager User interface andfunctionality.Oracle Forms support for EM has been improved with anew user interface and new features. Its now possible tocorrelate a specific Forms sessions activities withactivities seen in the database. A function that associatesa Forms instance with a SSO instance has also beenadded.
  23. 23. Events in Pluggable Java Components.Oracle Forms support for Pluggable Java Components(or PJC) has been augmented by adding support fordispatching events to the Forms server in PJC code.
  24. 24.  Tracing improvements.The tracing present in Oracle Forms can now log thenames of called PL/SQL functions and procedures andthe names, types and values of parameters used in thosecalls.
  25. 25. Oracle Diagnostic Logging.Support for Oracles standardized logging architecture isat the heart of this new feature.
