Oracle Forms vs. Microsoft's .Net

January 6, 2004
Mark Rittman

There's an interesting thread going on at that compares Oracle Forms to Microsoft's .Net. The original poster asked;

"I need to make decision on which development tool to use: Oracle Forms or Visual Studio .Net. I am new to Oracle and hope those who have gone the decision path could advise the pros and cons. We have Oracle 8 database in a AIX unix box (plan to upgrade to 9i in future), MS SQL Server and MS IIS. We do not run any Java web server or have any java programs. Mostly VB and ASP stuff.

If I use Oracle Forms for form-based app and web-based app, then I would need the resource and skill to run Oracle AS right?

Will there be any issues or problems I might faced if we standadised on .NET and Visual Studio as platform and development tool and Oracle as the database? Are there any company doing this?"

There's some good arguments made for either side; take a look if you get a chance.
