Unanswered: Compatability of Forms 6i with Oracle 9i
I downloaded and installed Forms 6i and Reports 6i on Windows 2000 Server. Along with it, SQL Plus 8 is also installed even though I did not specify it. If I install Oracle 9i Enterprise Edition in my system, will it work. Can anyone tell me the reason for this and also whether Forms 6i and Reports 6i are compatible with Oracle 9i.
We're running forms and reports 6i along with our 9i db so yes are compatible.
As to the sqlplus 8, I think it depends on what you selected to install - I usually only install the runtime components and that doesn't usually result in sql being installed.
One other thing to mention - if your forms application uses boilerplates (which ours does) you may need to appply a patch (depending on which version of forms you have downloaded and installed) - i think its called 6a (if you think you may need it, let me know and I will check it).
Thank you Keith for your reply. But can you please tell me do have boiler plates in Forms. I have used it only in Reports.
Can you also please help me regarding the object library. I have created an object library. But I am not able to drag the object(example a push button) from the object navigator to the object library. How to do that. When I click an object, say push button and right click the mouse for viewing the pop up menu, the smart class menu and smart trigger menu are disabled. How to use that.
