Opening ceremony by Wim Coekaerts & Janny Ekelson. Nothing much to say about this… First keynote session was brought by Chris Leone about Oracle Fusion applications. Applications is not my thing, but it was nice to see how everything in Fusion apps is integrated like BI and collaboration. My first session was “The best way” […]

Grant Ronald has just published three references for Oracle Forms upgrades to 11g. Those references can be found on his blog. As Grant writes, it’s pretty easy to upgrade, just recompile and deploy.
