    Is it possible to convert forms 4.5 to 6i in batch loads, basically I have 200 hundred forms I need to upgrade to 6i.

    I am aware that you can compile forms in batch to the same version, but can you automate the 4.5 - 6i conversion. Manually you have to open the form in the forms builder respond to the conversion dialog box and then recompile.

    DB:3.91:Scm9i For Forms6i ? zp




    If client wants to use forms 6i for version controlling, ie. being able to open/compile/checkin/checkout 6i forms through SCM - then what would be a certified combination - SCM(repository) 6i or SCM 9i

    Is there any way that client can use SCM 9i for dealing with forms6i. Ex. checking out the version object fmb and then compiling on 6i builder. In this case how would dependency manager work out the dependency of forms object.

    Since SCM 9i is bundled with 9i developer / designer, double clicking on form in 9i Repository Object navigator invoked 9i builder. Client does not want to convert 6i forms to 9i.

    Please advise.

    Do you guys know of any document that can be used for utilizing SCM as a part of the Developer Forms and Reports 9i settings. Why do we need to load the FMB file first to the builder before checkin or check out the file?

    You don't need to re-compile anything from the application side. After up gradation check if any invalid objects re-side in the database. Go through the read me file of database up gradation thoroughly. Monitor you database for few weeks at lest for any performance impact.

    Its better to clone your production database in a separate server. Upgrade it to 10g from 9i. Check all the functionality from the application server as well then go for the live environment.

    Christian

    DB:3.31:Experience Porting 4.5 Forms Directly To 9i ?? 3f

    Christian,

    the Forms Migration Assitant simply goes through your Forms Module and searches for changed built-ins or obsolete names. The real crux of migration is a change that happened between Forms 4.5 and Forms 5.0 in the Forms internal architecture.

    MIGrator is a tool offered by companies like Logis, XRSystems and Kybernon (where the second two licenced the product as far as i know) that performs a complete migration, also checking for the architectural changes.

    MIGrator is able to move Forms 3.0 applications to Forms 6i (and possibly higher) and really suited for customers with different versions of Forms.

    There are other companies in the same sector that are worth looking. PITTS.CON does do the same Job.

    For the sake of being neutral, here's a list of all partners offering migration tools:

    http://otn.oracle.com/products/forms/htdocs/partners.html

    The recommendation is to go from Forms 4.5 to 6i and then to Forms9i (you don't have to move to Forms9i first to get to Forms10g (9.0.4)).

    Hello All,

    I am using forms 6i and database 9i. I would like to make some changes in the PLL. This PLL is attached to number of forms. After doing changes do I need to compile the other forms in which this PLL is attached?
    What is the best method to handle this?

    Thanks,
    SUN

    DB:3.21:Forms 6i And Pll f9

    Ok : the public face of a procedure or function or packaged procedure or function are the parameter that you show to the world (the public face) eg:

    function get_total ( p_order_ref in number ) return number;

    If you change the code in the function then as as far as the function is concerned, nothing has changed and it should still run fine.

    If however, you change the function to be :

    function get_total ( p_order_ref in varchar2 ) return number;

    Then the public face that the Form sees has changed and you need to compile the Form again (and maybe alter the call in the Form in this case)

    The same thing will happen to database packages (as a rule I always use packages rather than standalone functions/procedures) : if you change the specification of the package then you'll need to recompile any plls or fmbs (or mmbs) that use it.

    I think that when you compile a form it takes a checksum of the signature of dependent objects and as long as the signature doesn't change (the public face) then you're ok.

How do we run production forms applications (converted from Forms 6i to Forms 9i) without Oracle Application Server. We shouldn't have to buy OAS to get the same functionality we had before, without it.

    Our site hardware standard for servers is to have 2 CPUs. Also, our Forms applications are used by dozens of internal users, but relatively infrequently.

    We are interested in migrating from 6i Forms (Client/Server) to 9i Forms for the Web. I read a document on migrating to 9i but I am unclear where to start.

    I think I need to download Oracle 9i Forms Services. Is this correct? I believe what I want is 9i Forms Builder and Forms Services. Then the Migration Assistant for this as well. We don't want/need the full AS application.

    However, I haven't been able to find a download for 9i Forms. Is it not available on the site?

    Thank you.

    Can I convert a 5.0 Form to Forms 9i without using Forms 6i?

    Is it as simple as a recompile from Forms 5.0 to Forms 9i?

    Our plans are to convert from Forms 5.0 to a support version of Forms and incorporate 9iAS also. Therefore, should I go ahead and convert to Forms 9i or 6i? Any recommendations. I know that Forms 9i does not support any type of runtimes on the client, but we are going to use 9iAS.

    Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Gerry

    DB:3.16:Conversion Of Forms 5.0 To 9i xm

    Gerry,

    support requires you to fisrt upgrade to Forms6i and then continue to upgrade to Forms9i. The reason for this is that there is a slight architectural diffrenec between Forms 5.0 and Forms6i that may cause problems if going directly to Forms9i (like always going directly to Forms9i may work, but also could fail. So the best and safest way to go is via Forms6i)

    The message from Spooner was locked with no replies so I am posting a similar question.

    We are web enabling our client-server forms application and upgrading from 4.5 to 6i. We expect to use a Win NT 9i app server for development and a Solaris 9i app server for production. What differences, if any, would we expect in the appearance (and functionality?) of the forms and reports as we re-compile them on Solaris?

    Are there any specific Forms patch sets or versions we need to use with 9iAS (1.0.2).
    null

    DB:3.14:Oracle Forms From 9ias On Nt Vs Solaris f8

    Functionally and visibly, you should not have any differences between the Solaris and NT versions.

    The Solaris version seems to be ahead of the NT version (porting delay?) so I'd probably go that route.

    Thanks,
    Arun.

    DB:3.12:Migration From Developer 2.1 To Forms 6i/9i p7

    Hi,
    3 things.

    1. The forms 9i is NOT available for the client/server environment. Therefore if your customer insists on client/server environment then you need to upgrade to forms 6i (which is the final client/server version of forms/reports developer).

    2. There are OS patches that you need to apply if you want to run forms/reports developer 6i on solaris 2.6. The complete list is available in the 6i installation documentation (you might find it also on the internet). If you upgrade the OS to solaris 8, then there is no extra OS patches required for forms/reports developer 6i. We are running 6i on Solaris 8 (with no extra OS patches).

    3. The last available patch for forms/reports developer 6i is patch #10 which can be downloaded from Oracle Metalink. I did apply this patch for 6i on solaris 8 client/server environment and has not seen any negative effect so far.

    DB:3.10:Ora Error While Connecting To Forms 6i jf

    Each Oracle home must be configured to connect to a database. Typically, this is done by coping the sqlnet.ora and tnsnames.ora files to the %ORACLE HOME%\network\admin of each installation. However, this means you have to maintain multiple copies of these files. A better solution would to create a TNS_ADMIN variable in the Environment settings or in the Windows Registry. This allows you to share the TNS setup between multiple Oracle Homes. I recommend using an Environment variable over the Registry.

    Hope this helps,

    we only support migration to Oracle9i Forms through Forms 6i.

    that said, migrating from Forms 5.0 to Oracle9i Forms will almost certainly work. So give it a go, and if something doesn't work, just do that part through Forms 6i.

    Bear in mind that you are going from client/server to Forms on the web. So it might be beneficial to do it in 6i by migrating your application to the web first, and then upgrading to Oracle9i Forms on the web.

    Thank u so much for your replay.

    Exactly requirement is : I need t load .DBF data into Oracle database 9I.
    Once data will load into Oracle database then it will be easy to sent SMS using Cygwin gateway.

    For this task firs of all I need to get data from .DBF file into Oracle.

    So for loading .DBF data from Foxpro database into Oracle I try the package from

    http://asktom.oracle.com/pls/asktom/f?p=100:11:0::NO::P11_QUESTION_ID:711825134415

    Tom's solution is perfect , I can easily load .DBF file data into oracle database.

    But , we have a three .DBF files . out of that .DBF files, one DBF file has a 102 columns and 44,408 rows , now this package is taking so much time around 1 hour to load 44,408 rows.

    So , we are thinking to connect .DBF files using ODBC connection of microsoft.

    So that Oracle d2k Forms can direct read data from .DBF files.

    Our hardware specification is :-

    Server - 2003 - 32 bit , Oracle Forms 6i , Oracle Database 9I

    Client Specification :-

    Windows Xp - 32 Bit - PRofessional Edition.

    So is there any solution which can load data easily with minnimam no of time into Oracle From Forpro .DBF file.

    Currently we are running forms 6i and reports 6i on oracle 9i. Now we want to migrate to developer suite 9i.
    We have so many reports which are generated using 'delimited'format.

    So, i would like to know whether these things will be affected or not? can we just compile the 6i reports on 9i and execute them? do we need to do any changes in the report if we are using parameters?

    (i came to know that button objects and oracle graphics are obsolete and we will loose them if we have any in 9i). Are there any more which will affect in this migration? can we overcome the patch problems which we have in 6i if we migrate to 9i.

    any one can plz through some light on this?

    Try using delimiteddata format. Thing to note is that delimited desformat used to place output as defined in reports layout but delimteddata would be like a data dump and not layout information will be considered. However you will not face the crash issue with delimiteddata when using a large volume of data. Delimteddata format is available from Reports 6i patch-21 or so. Please refer to patch release notes for more infomarion on this new format.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Bardeny

    Sorry,

    You can not run forms without "Oracle AS Form Service"
    and to run form or any application using "Oracle AS form service" u must need any browser e.g. IE,Netscape,Mozila

    so without browser u can not run fomrs!!!!!

    Hint : from Oracle 9i forms onwards you can not run client server technology

    DB:3.06:Using Forms 6i With 9i As fc


    Hi

    Is it possible to use Forms 6i in 9i environment i.e. Oracle 9i and 9i AS without converting (or migrating) it to Forms 9i.

    I know forms developed in 6i can be migrated to 9i easily. But I am having a unique situation where the client wants web-based application but rigid about use of Forms 6i and not 9i.

    Can anybody help me on this. This is very urgent.

    Regards,

    Ritesh

    DB:3.06:Using Forms 6i With 9i As fc

    Hi,

    Forms 6i only runs within Oracle Application server 9.0.1 while Forms 9i uses Oracle Application Server 9.0.2. It is not supported to configure Forms 6i woth Oracle Application Server 9.0.2 and above. To use the Forms 9i web runtime environment the Forms modules must be upgraded first.

    DB:3.06:How To Batch Compile Forms In 11g c8


    We are upgrading our 10g R1 forms to Forms 11g.

    We have about 1000 forms.

    How to batch compile the forms (in Windows XP)??

    What is the script to batch compile all the forms?

    We also need to find out which forms gave errors and which ones did not. Is there a way to log this information to another file like a log file?

    Hope this helps

    If someone's response is helpful or correct, please mark it accordingly.Hi, this is good, but since we have 1000 forms, some will give errors. How to find those error ones only, so that we can open them in the builder and correct the errors???
