Middleware12c Support

By Stefan posted on 17-Nov-2015

Forms12c and Reports12c are now fully supported.


Build 340 of FormsTool and Build 437 of FormsAPI Master now detect Middleware12c correctly and offer access to all the new properties added in this new Oracle Forms release. Please note that Middleware12c is only offered as a 64bit version by Oracle and hence requires the 64bit version of our tools.


FormsAPI Master V3.0 and FormsTool V3.0 final version released

By Stefan posted on 04-Nov-2013

Our brand new Version 3 rewrite of our tools is now officially out of beta-stage and has been released.


It has been a long journey to get it all done, but it's finally done! The V3.0 is a complete rewrite and was needed to support the new 64bit versions of Oracle Forms. I took the opportunity during the rewrite to drop a lot of old legacy code that was hard to maintain. Some of you might miss some old feature here and there (no more propertyset filters, no database compare, etc) but dropping those features helped to clean up and consolidate the code base considerably. The architecture behind the product has been completely reworked and is now much more stable and less buggy.



I am excited about the future of our tools and look forward to implement a lot new features and enhancements over the coming months!

FormsTool V3.0 64bit released

By Stefan posted on 07-Sep-2012

FormsTool V3.0 Beta can now be downloaded from our website. The new version is a complete rewrite and adds a lot of new features as well as long awaited support for Forms11g-64bit. The new version as released as BETA until all major features are included and the tool is showing to run stable.

Now that FormsTool is out of the door i will have time to focus on FormsAPI Master V3.0. The script engine compatible with 64bit was just released middle of August and still has some problems with exception handling (so i've been told). Hopefully I will know more about how that might impact you by end of the month. In the meantime please feel free to give FormsTool V3.0 a try - if you own a valid license key for FormsAPI Master then the new FormsTool version will accept those keys!
