Oracle HTMLDB vs. Oracle Forms
This project is almost finished. More and more details will
be added to this site as time passes. I have finished creating the same
application using both Oracle HTMLDB and Oracle Forms to demonstrate the
differences between each process. The documentation will be posted here as
soon as it is ready.
Oracle Forms has been around for a very long time and it is a
mature product. Its architecture is solid, but seems to be a bit dated
when asked to rapidly develop PL/SQL web applications. Oracle Forms has
the capability, but many times it takes a good developer to accomplish this.
Oracle HTMDB has been designed to fill the void left by
Oracle Forms. It is a totally new product designed to enable a power user
to rapidly develop web applications that are connected to an Oracle database.
A "power user" with general knowledge of PL/SQL will be able to use this product
to create great looking effective web applications. Existing IT staff at
smaller companies should be able to utilize Oracle HTMLDB without the need for
an army of professional Oracle developers.
Screenshots and info will be available soon.
