Oracle Application Development Tools: Statement of Direction: Verdict: Alive, On Life Support, Six Feet Under

Hey everyone, so the Oracle Statement of Direction 2012 for application development tools is out. Basically its the one time a year when I hold my breath to see what they will say about Forms.  And the verdict is drum roll please ……  LIFE  for forms. The other tools did not fair so well.

But the basic rundown is …

Oracle Forms – ALIVE AND WELL (for now 🙂

Oracle has no plan to discontinue support of Oracle Forms. Furthermore, a new version of  Forms, Oracle Forms 12c, is planned for delivery as a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c.

Oracle Reports – ON LIFE SUPPORT

The last major changes to Oracle Reports were in the 10g release. We are planning to release Oracle Reports 12c as part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c. However, Oracle’s strategic reporting solution is now BI Publisher. While Oracle’s support of Oracle Reports will extend well into the future, customers should begin planning their migration to BI Publisher.

Oracle Designer – SIX FEET UNDER

Oracle Designer was not released as a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, nor is it planned to be a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c.

You can see the full statement here.

I also suggest you get all the information straight from the hourses or product managers mouth when me and Grant Ronald talk about what to do with your forms investment in our ODTUG Webinar on March 29. If you have not registered yet do it now! To Register
