Oracle FORMS migration TO APEX Services


Oracle APEX applications are usually created for business purposes – for data browsing, editing and analyzing. Developers of APEX applications focus mainly on the essential functionality, pushing the appearance of the application into the background. This is a strategic mistake!

Functionality and appearance of an application should always go hand in hand. Applications that work well but look clumsy are considered poor by the users. In such a case, any changes in forms, processes or validations are of no use – a good theme is the only solution

Oracle Application Express (APEX)

It helps you Build applications using only your web browser.

Application Express enables you to design, develop and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven applications using only your web browser. See how you can take advantage of this fully-supported, no-cost feature of the Oracle Database.

Oracle FORMS Migration TO APEX

Oracle Apex is now on version 4 and has matured and developed as a product over the last few years. While Apex can’t do everything that Forms can do, it certainly matches a fair proportion of the Forms functionality.  It also provides a much cheaper method of delivering the interface to the user as you don’t need the expensive Application Server/ Weblogic server license.

While there is an Oracle migration tool, it doesn’t do the whole job and it’s a significantly more complex conversion than upgrading to a newer version of Forms.  This means that it is more expensive and requires more testing, but with the change in licence requirements, it might still be a cheaper option.


  1. A maintained and Oracle supported platform.
  2. A simpler environment in production with less costly Oracle infrastructure licencing.
  3. Protection of your investment in your pl/sql code which is taken straight across into the Apex environment
  4. Easy to maintain and update.


  • Cost Effectiveness of Oracle Apex Technology (which is FREE), and can be installed in your existing Oracle Database or the freely available Oracle XE Database.
  • Application Access using Oracle Apex is suitable for Intranet, Internet and Extra-net deployment through the use of Web Browser ONLY with NO client software, WebUtil and/or Java Plug-In needed for development, deployment or run-time purposes.
  • Simpler Deployment mechanism using ONLY one Application Technology Stack on a 2-tier architecture offered by Oracle Apex makes it easier, cheaper and faster to get your applications implemented to meet your business requirements, and coupled with our Application Foundation Framework; it will be excellent at building custom or bespoke web-based applications.
  • The need to integrate with other web applications and functionalities may not be possible with the existing Oracle Forms & Reports applications.
  • The need to have more control over the information that is displayed & generated through various Report output formats (HTML, PDF, CSV, XML, TXT) is simpler with Oracle Apex.
  • Easier to find Oracle Resources with PL/SQL, HTML, CSS & JavaScript knowledge, and enhanced functionalities in Apex 4.0 & higher versions simplifies Application Development even more.
