    Hey Frank,

    Hope you're doing well; We're planning to migrate oracle forms 11gR2 to 12CR2 on-premise; I believe you would have done this already; Could you please share the issues,fixes or best practices to focus on?

    Raj,

    the upgrade from 11R2 to 12cR4 does not require much work on the modules. A recompile will do the work in most cases. Make sure you keep a copy of your 11g source because once you migrated to 12 the sources are not backwards compatible. 12cR4 has a lot of new features you might want to add. See the latest Version to get a nice overview.

    https://www.oracle.com/a/tech/docs/oracleforms-1221-newfeatures.pdf

    I have some papers to do the step by step installation with Forms 12 - but they are all iin GERMAN so they will be no big help. The Installation process of the latest Version is nearly 100% equal to 12.2.13. If you find some useful papers with this Version you could use them.
