3 Converting Forms 6i FMTs to Oracle Forms FMBs

Because some properties are obsolete in Oracle Forms, you cannot directly convert Forms 6i FMTs and MMTs to Oracle Forms FMBs and MMBs using Forms Developer.

3.1 Converting a Forms 6i FMT to an Oracle Forms FMB

To convert a Forms 6i FMT or MMT to an Oracle Forms 11g FMB or MMB, do the following:

  1. Use the Forms 6i Builder or Compiler to convert the Forms 6i FMT or MMT to a Forms 6i FMB or MMB.

  2. Then, use Forms Developer to convert the Forms 6i FMB or MMB to an Oracle Forms FMB or MMB. Open the Forms 6i source files in the Oracle Forms Builder, save them, then recompile them; or use the Oracle Forms Compiler.
