Documentation for migration from Oracle 7.3.4 to 9

I'm planing to migrate from Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 9. Is there any documentation online for that? Also, I'm using Forms 4.5 -- will this work with Oracle 9?

I'm planing to migrate from Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 9. Is there any documentation online for that (on the Internet)? Also, I'm using Forms 4.5 -- will this work with Oracle 9 or should I regenerate all of them? Thanks.
The official Oracle documentation is available on Oracle's Technology Network Web site. Click on Documentation, then Documentation Index. This should display all the documentation sets for the various Oracle products and releases. Specifically with respect to your first question, look at the Oracle9i Release 2 Database Migration guide which provides detailed information on how to migrate to release 9.2. According to the documentation, a direct upgrade from 7.3.4 to 9.2 is supported. You can also choose to upgrade using other methods, such as exporting your 7.3 database and then importing it into a newly created 9.2 database. Whatever method you choose will depend on a number of factors such as the size of the database and outage length. Be sure to test the upgrade process several times in a non-production environment first.
