I know, there were NOT much to post throughout last few months about Oracle as I am nose down into one of the development platforms that I hardly desired for developing business applications.
For me, it was always Oracle forms and reports. The easiest, the most robust development tools for BUSINESS applications which is supported by the ease of SQL, PL/SQL
I am doing loads of research with C# & SQL database, which will be the main technologies behind our next proposed ERP suite. After spending almost 15 years with Forms and reports, I don’t see Oracle is too keen about modernizing their most loved development tools & the latest release lacks loads of features those would have helped to reclaim the desktop based business applications.
Wondering whether there is still room for desktop applications, especially for businesses? dude! there is, and there will be!
So stay tuned, I will start posting my “findings” about C#, who knows may be some sample applications using Windows forms or WPF & Oracle database in near future!
