Using a good old Forms application on a brand new mobile? Are you kidding?
Mia Urman and Oraplayer will be presenting the full process in detail in a FREE webinar hosted by ODTUG called Take Your Oracle Forms on the Road Using ADF Mobile
“In our constant effort to show how we can achieve Oracle Forms modernization without re-development we decided to rise to the ultimate challenge and show how we can run Oracle Forms from the
newly released ADF Mobile »
If you are such a Forms survivor aiming to keep in touch with in the new world, it is worthwhile to follow this event.
This version allows the developer to display video clips inside or outside the Forms application.
The video clip can be loaded from the client, an A.S. virtual directory, an Internet URL and, of course, from a database BLOB column. The movie is played through the Quicktime Java Bean, so that the client must have QuickTime installed.
Another solution, that does not require lot of code, is to use the Google Chart tools. It is easy as sending an HTTP Url that
returns a PNG image of the desired chart ;-)
However, this solution requires an image item that can be populated from an Internet URL.
The Forms Look and Feel project can do it, but is a little bit heavy for those who only want to display charts, and nothing more.
So that, the Handle Image Java Beans are the right solution.
During her session - Give Your Forms a Face-lift: Tips and Tricks for Oracle Forms GUI Modernization - she will do the session then they will have about a 30 minute "Ask the experts"
Forms experts panel. Here their will take questions from the audience with Grant Ronald serving as the moderator and a panel of
experts both solution providers and consultants.
