The best feature we've found is the ability to capture and display exact values in the database. That's exactly what the end user wants to see, because if they store something in the database that they want to retrieve later on, Forms is on the front end. This makes it easy to retrieve whatever was entered into the database before.
Improvements to My Organization:
It's allows end users who don't have technical backgrounds to capture, edit, and later retrieve data in the database.
Room for Improvement:
You can customize it way too much and it becomes confusing to control. You have different users who want to customize it for their purposes, so everybody is doing something different. Then you write a code, and somebody else has to maintain it, which presents challenges.
We've had no issues with deploying it.
It's stable and we can do whatever we want to do.
When you purchase Oracle Forms, you purchase a certain number of licenses, and so it works for a certain number of licenses. We have been able to add more users and licenses without any problems.
The initial setup is complex because our network is private.
Cost and Licensing Advice:
Let's say that we spend a lot of money, but it's useful. We're willing to pay for that.
Spend time playing with it prior to purchasing it, and then make the decision.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
