Planning to migrate your Reports application from 6i to a newer version? Or already in the process of migration? Here are some documents that will help you in the process.
Note: If you are planning to migrate from 6i (or any earlier version), it is strongly recommended that you migrate directly to Oracle Reports 10g, instead of migrating to Oracle Reports 9i or any other intermediate version.
Visit this page to get answers to the main questions you have about the migration process, for example, which executables you need to change, and whether you can run your existing 6i applications in the new Reports version.
The objective of this white paper is to provide one-stop information about the availability of features from earlier releases (6i, 9i, and 10g (9.0.4)) in Oracle Reports 10g Release 2 (10.1.2).
This article summarizes Oracle's Software Development strategy for Oracle Forms, Oracle Reports and Oracle Designer.
Oracle Application Server Forms and Reports Services installation allows you to install and configure Forms and Reports Services without the need to install and configure all components of Oracle Application Server 10g. This is a new installation type introduced in Oracle Application Server 10g. This is a light-weight install type, and cannot deliver all of the features and functionality of the Oracle Application Server Enterprise Edition. The link above answers all the questions you may have about the Forms and Reports Services install type.
