On Monday I had my session at Oracle OpenWorld 2009 about Oracle Forms to Oracle Application Express conversion. When I was writing my book about this subject, I noticed that the most important priorities during a conversion project are management of the team and monitoring their productivity.
Conversion projects tend to be complex, enormous in size and full of dependencies. That’s why we need to make them smaller and create a situation where the functionality we try to create is the most important steering mechanism, not the complexity of the Oracle Forms we need to migrate.
During his Oracle OpenWorld presentation, David Peake, product manager Oracle Application Express, emphasized the same thought. Oracle Forms to Application Express projects are complex and large, so see this tool in APEX 3.2 as the way you can jump-start this project, but mainly to manage the complexity. David especially knew how to put the Framework that will be created during conversion: “All the Plumbing You Need!”.Oracle OpenWorld 2009: a.s.a.p. APEX - Productivity in Forms to APEX conversion,
