      Is Oracle forms 11g completely Java based ?

          Define "completely Java based"

          But, if I were to answer this, I'd say "no" - there are components that are written in C, the Forms programming language is still in PL/SQL

            You should read
            1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oracle_Forms
            2. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/forms/downloads/index-092941.html

            Hope this helps...

              Completely Java based means if i develop a form in oracle forms 11g will i be able to access that forms from any OS ? without any dependencies ? will i have complete functionality of forms when i access that form over the internet ?

                Well, the client side of Forms runs via a Java Applet. If you read the Forms documentation, it will tell you what platforms are certified on the client side. There's always going to be a dependency of having a compatible JRE installed on the client you are using to access Forms.

                  what abt the look and feel of forms ? will it be similar to forms 6i or Oracle apps when deployed over the internet ?

                    Almost from any OS. JRE should be there or any JAVA runtime, over internet same functionality.
                    but not from Mobile.

                    Lot alike forms 6i, look and feel.

                    better read the documentation.

                    Hope this helps

                        Please look at
                        1. {thread:id=924297}
                        2. {thread:id=2260070}
                        3. {thread:id=2132611}

                        And finally Integrating Oracle Forms into Oracle ADF Faces

                        Hope you will get answer.

                              ADF is not Forms. Forms is not ADF. They are completely different. No, you cannot change an Oracle Forms form in ADF.
