This month of May 2013, we had the pleasure of receiving the well known Oracle Expert Mr Tom Kyte here in Montreal. The presentation lasted almost two hours with the main emphasis on the upcoming Oracle 12c database. Most notably, Mr Kyte described the various new features including those for PL-SQL.

However, the most striking new feature is the change in the Oracle architecture. From now on, there is one instance that controls a number of databases. Better get used to the Catalog and container concepts.

On a personal level, I was lucky to receive two tickets to the upcoming soccer game between the Montreal Impact and the Houston team (MLS). As a bonus, here is my picture with Mr Kyte and the Oragec president. What a day …

Migrating from Oracle Forms to APEX


Posted by Hafed | Posted in oracle | Posted on 28-05-2013

Yesterday, I  gave an impromptu talk about migrating from Oracle Forms to APEX. The aim was to highlight the different options or paths to follow when deciding about a migration strategy. I also touched upon migrating from Excel/Access to Forms. Here are the screenshots from that presentation. A translation of  each one is given below the screen capture.
