    well..

    I think pearl would work. Coldfusion works too, but not open source = $$
    if you wanted to, you can run ASP on chilisoft/apache. I think it's called chilisoft anyway....

    I dont know about the other q, sorry!

    Alternatively you could program in PHP.

    >they have a different version of forms and reports for unix and windows ????
    If done "correctly" the same source files for Forms & Reports
    can be used by both 6i & 9i versions and both client/server & web.
    The source files simply need to be (re)compiled for both versions of the tools.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    If you want a really easy solution, run Apache that is included with Oracle, and use the OWA Toolkit. The Toolkit is written in PL/SQL, so create all of you web pages in PL/SQL... It provides print statements (HTP and HTF packages) to display Oracle data in web format... so what you have is:

    HTP.print( '<html>' );
    ....
    FOR cursor_var IN cursor_rec LOOP
    HTP.print( '<td>' || cursor_var. column1 || '</td>' );
    ...
    END LOOP;
