A brief note on Form Integration & Migration:

Does your organization have an Oracle Forms application that you'd like to migrate to ADF? Or, perhaps you're an

Oracle Forms Developer and want to modernize your application development skills? If so, you've come to the right place!

This section will strive to answer common questions that arise as you move from Forms to ADF.

Our Oracle Forms

Statement of Direction
points out that Oracle is committed to
the long-term support of Oracle Forms and Reports. However, many
customers feel

they are outgrowing their Forms applications. Users are demanding
more sophisticated and interactive users interfaces. Executives

are requiring SOA-enabled applications that integrate with
peripheral services. Development leads are encouraging a more

modern approach to application development, including adherence to
design patterns like MVC. So even as Oracle still supports

Forms, the list of reasons to move off of it is becoming more
compelling and is only gaining further momentum by the fact that

Oracle's own Fusion Applications are using ADF.

and organizations looking to align with both the technology stack and

look-and-feel of Fusion Applications are choosing ADF, and thus
reaping the benefits of years of best practices in enterprise

application development that are baked into the ADF framework. So,
if you decide to migrate off of Forms for any of these reasons,

ADF is the way to go. Grant Ronald has published a video of our position on the subject, along with an ODTUG article explaining

our direction
. These materials explain that there are other migration tools/frameworks/paths, but the best choice is usually to

follow Gartner's recommendation that if you are going to migrate off of Oracle Forms, ADF is the least risky and least costly

migration path.

For details around OAF as used in E-Business Suite (EBS) and when to use ADF with EBS you can review the following blogs from Shay Shmeltzer.
