Utilities for Oracle Forms developers
FormDiff features editable profiles that allow developers to ignore objects they are not concerned with. Preferences allow developers to control how the FormDiff output is saved: Text, HTML or XML. Users can print the entire difference output or selected navigator nodes.
Using FormDiff, development team can build its own Forms version control tools.
Automate Changes to Forms with Formalin
Product Description: As a developer or administrator of Forms applications you are often faced with the task of making the same changes in a lot of forms. This is not only a teadious job, but there is also a great risk that some forms are missed or that changes are not made in the same way in all forms. Formalin is a tool to automate this type of work.
Formalin is mainly used to make the same type of changes in a large number of forms, e.g. when upgrading to a new version of Oracle Forms or when a new common standard for Forms applications is introduced. Formalin can also be used to find the forms that meet certain criteria. This can for example be used to produce a report of which forms will be affected by a specific change. Furthermore Formalin can also be used to test if a form complies with the coding conventions and standards that apply in a project. E.g. that all forms should have a When-New-Form-Instance trigger or that all visible items should have a visual attribute.
Migration from older versions of Oracle Forms
The tool accepts Oracle Forms source files as input and delivers an output that runs on a browser, based on application code and conditions. It migrates all embedded code (e.g., PL/SQL) to the latest versions of PL/SQL. The output will also be optimized as an object for better scalability and also makes it independent from data access.
The tool in its initial phase aims to migrate Oracle Forms applications to a Web environment, thereby helping application users to take advantage of the Web, while maintaining the strengths of client server computing.

Presently the most frequent case is the migration from SQL*Forms 3.0 to Oracle Forms version 6i. Each old Form is migrated to the target Form with its full functionality and features; moreover MIGrator enables to define new required features related to the target Form and afterwards automatically generates the target Form with the required features. No manual work is needed after the conversion.
