We're in the exact same situation as you. We're also in the process of migrating from Forms and Reports 11g to 12c. We're thereby also forced onto ORDS due to the lack of the mod_plsql module in 12c. My short answer is:
- wpg_docload still works fine with ORDS, as long as you're using version 3.0.5 or newer.
- The PlsqlDocumentTablename parameter for uploading files to the database has an equal parameter called "apex.docTable". This parameter, however, won't work without a full APEX deployed in the database. We rely on this functionality in our applications, as I suppose you do. But the bad news here is, that it probably won't be possible to run upload files through ORDS - without having a full APEX installation - until probably version 3.1.0. That's at least all the information, I've been able to get out of Kris Rice. In my company, we are still considering, if we should wait for this functionality, or if we should bite the bullet and deploy APEX in our database, even though we really don't have anything to use it for, apart from this functionality. We would rather not have to have a product to maintain, that we don't really need.
Besides this, I would recommend you to take a look at this unofficial migration guide for more details. https://oss.oracle.com/projects/mod_owa/dist/documentation/ords_setup.htm
Hope this helps,
