Working With Oracle Forms Applications - Overview

Oracle Forms, previously called “SQL*Forms”, is part of Oracle’s Internet Developer Suite (iDS). It is a 4GL Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment that allows forms to be deployed across the Web via Oracle’s Internet Application Server (iAS) Forms Services.

Because Oracle Forms is based on Java technology, before you can record and replay Oracle Forms transactions, you must configure Java Virtual Machine using Silk Performer profile settings. The Java Just-In-Time Compiler must also be disabled while recording Oracle Forms 6i or higher.

Before proceeding with this chapter, it is essential that you familiarize yourself with TrueLog Explorer basic functionality.
