Oracle Forms has been around for almost 30 years and in that time companies have built large applications consisting of hundreds if not thousands of individual forms. Now with customers demanding a modern web interface, the sheer size of these legacy FormsĀ  applications makes that difficult if not impossible to achieve.

Enter Oracle Application Express (APEX). Now you can eliminate pain points seamlessly extending your Forms by adding key business processes or task flows written in APEX. It allows you to run in the same database, use the same security policies, use the same data model, the same developer skill set and best of all no additional licensing. We will show you how to start building these extensions immediately.

Objective 1: Explain how it is possible to have Oracle Forms and Oracle APEX coexist in the same database

Objective 2: Compare application security configurations between Oracle APEX and Oracle Forms and show how Real Application Security can be used for both

Objective 3: Describe how Oracle APEX can be used to extend the functionalities of Oracle Forms while keeping the Oracle Forms applications in place
