Oracle Open World is around the corner – with all the latest about Oracle products. In het hubbub of the latest and greatest, flashiest and news-worthiest, you may not expect Oracle Forms to play a major role. And to be fair: it will not have a major role at OOW. However, Forms is (still) a very important technology for many of Oracle’s customers and (therefore) for Oracle itself. On Tuesday 2nd October, a special Forms community event will take place at Oracle Open World. Under the theme “What should we do with our Oracle Forms going forward ?“, you are invited to come meet the Oracle Forms product management and worldwide leading Forms experts to answer your burning questions, discuss modernization options and hear Oracle’s vision for system development moving forward, as well as attend two OOW sessions at the beginning and the end of this event:
11:45 AM ”Give Your Forms a Face-lift: Tips and Tricks for Oracle Forms GUI Modernization” by Mia Urman from OraPlayer
in between – we will have an “Ask the experts” Oracle Forms experts panel. Here we will answer questions from the audience with Grant Ronald – Oracle Forms product manager as our moderator and a panel of experts More >
Tuesday May 15th, Nieuwegein – The Netherlands: During an intense day and evening, close to 120 Forms developers and architects gathered for discussions, explorations and exchange of experience around the use of Oracle Forms and more importantly: the future of the current Forms applications, Forms-using organizations and Forms developers. Various scenarios, approaches and tools and technology stacks were discussed, hybrid landscapes sketched and pros and cons evaluated.
An interesting line up of international experts on Forms had joined their collective forces and minds to present the most complete overview of the Future of Forms available anywhere in the world today. From relatively new and specialized solutions such as OraPlayer and Yo!Forms to more proven (OraFormsFaces) and mature, architecturally driven future scenarios from PITSS and Oracle Consulting complemented with Forms modernization and integration stories as well as the official strategy from Oracle product management.

During the Oracle Open World conference going on this week I was asked by one of the attendees to one of my sessions for a little guidance on the following challenge in ADF:
“We currently have an Oracle Forms application that we are rebuilding in ADF 11g. One of the features in this Forms application, is that whenever a field can contain a really large block of text, it will automatically be shown in a popup when the user clicks on or otherwise enters the field. Inside the popup, the entire field and its contents can be shown. Could you show me how to do this in ADF 11g?”
And that is a type of question I quite like. It is tangible, it is something I can easily help out with and by doing so promote ADF a little. So here it goes.
