8.1 About Forms Trace

Forms Trace allows you to record information about a precisely defined part of forms functionality or a class of user actions. This is accomplished by defining events for which you want to collect trace information. For example, you can record information about trigger execution, mouse-clicks, or both. From the Enterprise Manager Application Server Control Console, you can use trace output to diagnose performance and other problems with Oracle Forms applications.

Forms Trace replaces the functionality that was provided with Forms Runtime Diagnostics (FRD) and Performance Event Collection Services (PECS), which were available in earlier releases of Oracle Forms. Forms Trace allows you to trace the execution path through a form, for example, the steps the user took while using the form.
