Outlining Oracle Forms/Oracle Applications Projects

Before you begin testing an Oracle Forms application, ensure the following:
  • The Oracle Forms client can be started on the recording machine.
  • Know which version of Oracle Forms you are testing. Currently supported versions are Oracle Forms 6i, 9i, 10g, 11g, 12c and Oracle EBS 11i, 12.x.
  1. Click Start here on the Silk Performer workflow bar.
    Note: If another project is already open, choose File > New Project from the menu bar and confirm that you want to close your currently open project.
    The Workflow - Outline Project dialog box opens.
  2. In the Name text box, enter a name for your project.
  3. Enter an optional project description in Description.
  4. From the Type menu tree, select the application type that matches your Oracle Forms/Oracle Applications version (Application Server/Component Models > Oracle > Oracle Forms <version>, or ERP/CRM > Oracle > Oracle Applications <version>).
  5. Click Next.
    Note: If you need to add additional resources to the project, right-click the project icon in the Project menu tree view. It is particularly important that all the user data files (.csv), random data files (.rnd), and .idl files needed by Silk Performer are set up for your project.
The Workflow - Model Script dialog box appears.
