i have developed a small application in forms 6i and reports are generated in report 6i.now i want to make a executable file to run my application.
is it possible?if possible how it can be done ???
plz instruct me step wise because i am fresher in this field.
what do you mean executable? I guess a way to start your application.
The simple way is using shortcuts. Create a shortcut that calls the forms runtime executable ifrun60.exe passing parameters.
You can pass several parameters (run the Forms Runtime program to see what parameters you can use).
Example shortcut with parameters:
Destination: C:\path_to_oracle6i\bin\ifrun60.exe MODULE=your_application_form.fmx USERID=SCOTT/TIGER@DB_NAME
Start from: Your application's FMX path
the meaning of my question is that say i have to deliver my application to my client and i want to give my source code.then how to make it complete package to deliver and make the application run.plz help
...now i want to make a executable file to run my application.

No, Oracle Forms is similar to Java in that it requires and executes within a "Runtime." In order to run your Forms 6 application you must have the Forms and Reports Runtime installed on the client computer. Take a look at the following document (Chapter 1.5) for information on "Deploying Completed Applications." Oracle Forms Developer and Oracle Reports Developer: Guidelines for Building Applications
how can i make the shortcut??using a batch file or something else??i mean to say that if i run the ifrun60.exe file then every time it asks for path of fmx file.
can i make it to run the start form by double clicking it??plz help if you dont mind??i am so worried about it.
