New Year, New Look – Get a New UI on Us!

Looks DO matter! Today’s users are fed up with the current look and feel of their Oracle Forms / EBS System, many of which were developed last century.  We know how hard it can be to take the first step towards modernization. As Forms administrators/DBAs, your management may not want to believe there is any life left in these applications and won’t want to move forward. They probably think it’s wiser to move on, but you know that you can’t just toss aside two decades of development work because of how much money and work it would take to redevelop these complex business processes.

Well now you can WOW everyone and begin modernization for FREE. Show them just how fast and easy it is to reface Oracle Forms and EBS to web and mobile for a fraction of the cost and time with zero risk – on us!

Let our experts give your tired looking “back-office” applications a much needed “facelift” into the digital world while avoiding extreme investments of time or money.

Simply choose any use case from your existing Oracle Forms/EBS system* and we will show you how you can achieve an easy, low-risk, digital-first user experience in days!


Hear from others who have already been successful in doing just this. It’s a new year and it’s time for a new look. Click here to begin your mobile transformation today.

AuraPlayer takes Barcelona by Storm at the Mobile World Congress

AuraPlayer was thrilled to attend Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. It was our first time attending this epic conference, and we can assure you it lived up to all the hype.


Suhas Uliyar, Oracle’s VP Mobile Strategy, visits the AuraPlayer Booth

The conference emphasized the mobile revolution occurring throughout all industries and how organizations need to mobilize their business practices or they’ll be left behind. This further reinforces what Grant Ronald always says, “If you don’t have a mobile strategy, you have a strategy.”

At MWC we continued our partnership with Oracle and Samsung; as a member of Oracle’s Mobile Cloud  Ecosystem and Samsung’s Enterprise Alliance Program. We have been joining force since October to help companies mobilize their legacy systems and modernize their IT infrastructure without redevelopment or migration. Our collaboration with Oracle and Samsung has also been featured in Forbes and ZDNet. (more…)

Repository Database License Cost for Oracle Forms 12c Explained

Michael Ferrante, the Oracle Form Product Manager, has been asked to clarify the database repository licensing for Forms 12c. He was generous enough to share his response with the Oracle Forms Community as the second post in our Oracle Forms 12c guest series.  If you’re a Forms guru and want to contribute click here for more information.

Be sure not to miss our webinar with Michael on 2/29 at 1pm EST: Oracle Forms 12c: New Features Unveiled and Explained. Register now; space is limited!

Please contact Oracle to get the latest and most accurate information and don’t solely rely on a blog posting like this to make final decisions on how to leverage their licensing. But the answer to this FAQ is as follows:

 How can users who want to upgrade to 12c buy a new Database License for their Weblogic repository?

The current licensing doc (URL below) states that if you have an iAS-Enterprise or WLS Suite license you are entitled to run RCU against its own (separate) database.  Currently, this does not apply to customers with “Forms and Reports” licenses.  Additional DB licensing may be required for user with “Forms and Reports” licenses.

 This means that if you use the Forms and/or Reports products under an iAS-EE or WLS-Suite license, you are entitled to install the Repository in a separate database or your existing database at no additional charge and under certain restrictions (refer to doc mentioned below).

For customers with only a “Forms and Reports” license, they have the option of using their existing database or purchasing additional licensing if they choose to use an alternative database.  I have illustrated this in the table below for clarification.

For customers working in design-time (with an “Internet Developer Suite”), they can install the Repository into the restricted use database that is entitled as part of their iDS license.

Oracle Forms 12: New Runtime Options for More Flexibility Without a Browser  BY Holger Lehmann, Opitz Consulting

Today I would like to highlight 2 new runtime options to start your application. Oracle definitely looked ahead towards the future with new operating system issues e.g. new browsers and their new behavior in Windows 10.
1. The default case (as a browser plugin)
The normal way Oracle provides to start the Forms application out of the browser. Here, the client browser must support the Java Plugin
