Oracle Forms 12c (12.2.1) first impressions

As I already posted over the weekend, several new Oracle Fusion Middleware Components were released by Oracle.

One of this new Components is Oracle Forms & Reports 12c (12.2.1).

I have been playing around a little bit with the latest release:

  • Oracle Forms & Reports 12c is now requiring a configured Meta Repository
  • Don't try to use as the underlying Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.2.1) the "standalone" WebLogic Server, you NEED to install the Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Option (1.4 GB download) or else you can not install the Forms & Reports Part on top of your WebLogic/Infrastructure
  • The new Enterprise Manager is really cool now :-) can be reached under http://yourserver:port/em

The Look'n Feel is completely redesigned, my personal feeling is that the Oracle ALTA UI from Oracle ADF was the base for this really cool redesign.
