Last updated on NOVEMBER 30, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.2.2.0 [Release 11g]
Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.2.2.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to illustrate - via a simple case study - the steps required to 'upgrade' an Oracle Forms / Reports application from OracleAS 10g Rel 2 to Fusion Middleware 11g.

As you are interested in this upgrade, you would probably get interested in the following "Upgrade Advisor" document also :

<Note:252.1> "Upgrade Advisor: OracleAS 10g Forms/Reports Services to Oracle Middleware 11g Rel 1"

Scope

This document will focus on the specific actions required to make an OracleAS 10g Rel 2 Forms / Reports application work in a Fusion Middleware 11g environment.  The installation of Fusion Middleware (FMW) 11g and/or running of the FMW 11g Upgrade Assistant is not discussed. For more information regards these generic aspects of upgrading review the advice given in

<Note:854117.1> "How to Install Fusion Middleware 11g Forms and Reports Only"
<Note:853029.1> "How to Upgrade OracleAS 10gR2 Forms/ Reports "Standalone" to Fusion Middleware 11gR1?"
<Note:1392340.1> "Forms/Reports 11g R2: How to Upgrade AS 10gR2 or Forms/Reports "Standalone" 11g to 11g R2"

The case study described in this document uses:

1. A slightly modified form of the standard "Summit" application available through Oracle Technology Network (aka OTN). An example of Reports integration is added to the application. This modified version of the summit application is attached to this document - reference "modified_summit.tar.gz"

2. This document uses the standard webutil demo application attached to this article.
