Forms Compatibility Cheatsheet

Oracle Forms Certification with Databases and Operating Systems

Ready to FINALLY upgrade your Oracle Forms applications? As you start planning the initiative, do you feel you a bit lost on how to begin? You may think it is a scary, complex effort, but once you break it down it is not. 

Today we are going to highlight answers to the two main questions our clients, session attendees, and many fellow Oracle Forms community members are frequently asking when thinking about upgrading their Oracle Forms application.

Question 1: What databases and operating systems versions are compatible with my proposed upgraded version of Oracle Forms?

Question 2: In order to upgrade, do I need to invest in an upgraded database version and operating system?

 

This cheat sheet hopes to help simplify these common certification questions for the Forms community and to get you one step closer to obtaining your Oracle Forms Ph.D 😉 .
