    Unanswered: Forms 10g on Oracle 9i

    Hi,

    Is it possible to run Oracle forms 10g (or for the matter, 10 g developer suite) on Oracle 9i database ?

    If it is possible, please suggest me how to do so.

    On my machine, I have 9i database installed. But if I install Developer 10g, none of the applications like Forms, Reports, Graphics gets past the splash screen !! The applications simply hang !!


    Thanks in advance,

    I've had Forms V9.0.4 operate against V7, V8, 8i, V9 R1 & V9 R2 DBs.
    Why should the forms care about the version of the DB as long as they successfully make a Sql*Net connection?
    Rhetorical question....
    You did RECOMPILE the Forms with the 10g compiler ,didn't you;
    before you tried to serve them with the 10g server?

    I have tried that.
    I installed 9i in c:\DevSuiteHome and 10g Developer in C:\dev10g
    I am able to connect to sql plus and work with 9i database.
    Forms 10g is also opening, but when I try to connect in Forms 10g, I get TNS Listener error.
    I think I am quite close to solving my problem. Can you help me on this.
    I have two oracle homes c:\DevSuiteHome and C:\dev10g.

    You've made two posts and STILL have NEVER specified the EXACT and ACTUAL error message(s).
    I am NOT a mind reader.
    My crystal ball is broken.
    There can be many, many, many reasons why "it does not work".
    Without a clue as to the source of the failure, You're On Your Own (YOYO)!
    P.S.
    Keep in mind that by having two ORACLE_HOME trees
    two TNSNAMES.ORA files exist and are individually used.
