Java 7-Auto-Update Warning

It looks like, that all forms-applications run into a huge problem, starting next week, July 3rd 2012.

Oracle's Java 1.6-Updater will automatically update the JRE to 1.7 on all PC's, where auto-update is activated. And Java 1.7 is not certified with Forms 10g, Forms 11g or the E-Business-Suite (EBS-forms-components)

I try to find all relevant informations to that topic and blog them afterwards. So feel free to share this blog to all customers who may have this problem next week.

Mia Urman started with the next presentation: "To infinity and beyond: Extend the life of your Oracle Forms application by running your existing Forms from next generation technologies/platforms without migration"

She demonstrated "next generation forms" with oraplayer. A tool, which recreates a form into a mobile version.

In the first step OraPlayer records a forms business scenario.


Then you publish it to the web. In the last step you create an UI in the technology of your choice.


While you playback the scenario you work and interact with a running forms-runtime in the background.

Future of Oracle Forms conference, part 2

While Lucas Jellema was presenting his keynote, he had a time slot for Grant Ronald, live from UK via skype.



Grant told us about how we should develop in forms today, how to migrate today to Forms 11 and Forms 12 in the future. One sentence was very clear: "There are no plans to desupport Oracle Forms".



In the next presentation Francois Degrelle spoke about "Modernizing Forms using Pluggable Java Components and the Forms Look and Feel project".


He started with "Why should we use Java Beans in our Forms"

He demonstrated interesting java beans like a java calendar, a (more...)
