A number of good questions were asked during the live webcast. See the questions and Answers below.
Question: What new features will be included in the version 12 release of forms?
Answer: We are considering many new features but are not at liberty to provide any specifics at this time. What we can say is we plan to add more features in the next release than ever before.
Question: Can forms that are integrated with the OID component be upgraded with minimal changes required?
Answer: OAM/OID is currently supported in Forms version 11. Basically speaking, what you had in a previous version can be used with the current version. As long as you remain on a version which was deemed certfied then upgrading OID should be mostly straight forward.
Question: How is our current IAS licensing affected by Weblogic and Fusion Middleware. We currently use Forms, Reports and Discoverer on 10.1.2.3

Question: What will be the cost of moving the forms application into cloud environment?
Answer: It really depends on the type and configuration of your applications, the number of applications etc. Typically on WebLogic with Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder, it becomes very easy to turn applications into assemblies and then virtualize them, which is step 1 to take to a cloud environment.
Question: Is it difficult to upgrade to the current version of Forms?
Answer: Upgrading is fairly easy. Please see the Installation Guide for Oracle Forms and Reports.
Question: It'll be great if you could share this slide. Would you?
