Do Forms 6i and Oracle 9i play nicely together?

Is it possible to use Oracle Forms 6i Release 2 with Oracle 9i database? Do we need a Oracle Application Server to connect to the database using Forms 6i? If so, what version of Oracle Application Server is needed?
You do not need Oracle's Internet Application Server (iAS) for Forms 6i. You will need iAS for Forms 9i, though. Forms 6i will work against your Oracle 9i database.

One thing to consider is that Forms 6i is no longer receiving Error Correction Support. This means that Oracle will not fix any new bugs in Forms 6i. You can continue to receive support for known issues until Jan. 31, 2008 but experience has taught me that Oracle Support's first comment on any issues will be to upgrade to a fully supported version. I would highly recommended starting with Forms 9i instead.
