1 About Oracle Forms for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Use Oracle Forms for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to create a Forms environment in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in a fraction of the time it would normally take to do so on premises.

Oracle Forms for OCI is available as an application in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace. It supports Bring Your Own License (BYOL) and Universal Credits Model (UCM) images.

If you use BYOL images, you will need a valid and current license that includes Oracle Forms entitlements. A Support agreement with Oracle is also recommended but not required. Cloud usage is obtained and billed separately.

Oracle Forms for OCI BYOL is available in Marketplace at: https://cloudmarketplace.oracle.com/marketplace/app/OracleForms.

If you use Oracle WebLogic Suite for OCI UCM Image with Forms, you are billed per OCPU per hour for the entitlement and support to use Oracle WebLogic Suite which includes Forms.

The Oracle WebLogic Suite for OCI UCM Image with Forms is available in Marketplace at https://cloudmarketplace.oracle.com/marketplace/en_US/listing/70277452. Follow the steps to create a WebLogic Suite UCM Image, selecting from the Version list a version that includes “Forms” and the desired Linux version in the name. For example, 23.3.1-ol7.9-Forms- The Forms version names use this format:

<release date to Cloud>-<OS>-<Forms-version>_<build date>.


This periodic billing does not include the general use of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and other Cloud services that may be required to host this environment.

After launching this application, you can connect to the instance for the first time using SSH. Upon first connection, you will be presented with a series of questions that will be used to help configure the environment. Once the instance and the software on it have been provisioned, you can customize it to meet your needs.

The default settings for this VM image provides enough basic operational scope for most user cases. However, if you want to emulate something more typical of a true enterprise deployment (like hosting hundreds or thousands of concurrent users), you may need to adjust the VM shape, operating system, and/or your server software settings accordingly.

While this image can be used for production purposes, Oracle recommends that you perform a thorough testing and a security review before doing so.
