    I will try to answer, even though I'm not a specialist.

    you said 6i is not free , is that mean that there is a free release of forms or all are not free ?
    I said 6i because you told us 6i, but you are right, none of the Forms version is free.

    i think i can work with this small business without OAS or IAS ? right ?
    If you use Forms 6 in Client/Server mode, you don't need any Application Server.

    +3- is apex a free tool for production use ?+
    APEX is part of the database, and, as far as I know, the database is not free.

    I don't know your country name.

    My advice is , look for any oracle office in your country. And contact with them. Forms 6i isn't supported by oracle any more and they don't sale it now.

    So your native oracle office can say, you can use forms 6i (available version at web) without/with any cost.

    If you didn't, you can mail or call any oracle support /sales office. But every country have different license rules ,as per i know.
    You can use database 10g XE free of cost.

    you said 6i is not free , is that mean that there is a free release of forms or all are not free ?
    For learning purpose and practicing oracle provide free release of every new version. But when it's upgradable issue, you need support account and paying customer can have access at support site.
    and please answer me , i think i can work with this small business without OAS or IAS ? right ?
    Only web deployed version need OAS or IAS. Client server doesn't.
    3- is apex a free tool for production use ?
    Apex is a free tools from oracle.


    Hope this helps....

    NO. François Degrelle didn't say anything about XE. Said about General Database.

    Answer is
    What christian Erlin says just earlier post.
    christian erlin...      
    
    I don't know what those users are doing and if this qualifies as production usage (if you are earning money with it then I'd say it is production), but if you use XE you don't have to worry about the situation.

    Yes
    2- every database is not free too except xe and sure apex because it comes with the database(xe) , right ?
    Yes..
    If you use XE and apex, so far i know client didn't pay.

    Oracle didn't know. Because oracle people didn't go door to door to check, does anybody uses their product.
