Statement of Direction: Oracle Forms, Oracle

Good news for all Forms & Reports users: There will be 12c versions. Migration path is clear. But there is no need to hurry at the moment. Maybe we talk about strategic options for the future?


Oracle says:

Oracle remains committed to the support of Oracle Forms and Reports. The support cycle is

aligned to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g for Forms and Reports and Oracle Developer Suite 10g

for Oracle Designer. This continuation of support will allow customers to easily upgrade their

applications to the web and benefit from the centralized deployment and shared services that the

application server provides.

Given the rapid growth and adoption of Java/Java EE technologies in the industry, Oracle’s

strategy is also to provide a productive Java EE development environment (JDeveloper, Oracle

ADF, and BI Publisher) allowing Forms, Reports and Designer customers to embrace Java EE

development while still using a familiar RAD, visual and declarative approach. 

Oracle recommends customers to web-deploy their existing Forms and Reports applications,

consider the opportunities of new development in Java EE using JDeveloper, Oracle ADF, and

BI Publisher, and integrate these applications together on Oracle Fusion Middleware, sharing

common services and business logic. 

With this strategy, Oracle allows customers to continue to leverage their existing investments for

many years while offering a path to incrementally move to Java EE, at their own pace, using a

productive and familiar development environment: JDeveloper and ADF, and BI Publisher.
