Automate Changes to Forms with Formalin
Product: Formalin
Partner: Sigma

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.
