Packaging project built in Oracle 9i/Forms 6i

How to package a project built in Forms 6i/Oracle 9i? Is there an alternative to Oracle File Packager?

How to package a project built in Forms 6i/Oracle 9i? Is there an alternative to Oracle File Packager in Oracle 9i release 9.1.0.1.0.0?

Unfortunately, Oracle does not include a packaging utility for deploying Oracle Forms applications. So you'll have to rely on your own distribution methods or third-party software (such as Install Shield).

One reason Oracle does not have a package utility is that Oracle's direction is towards Web-based deployment. The only software needed on the client is a Web browser. Oracle Forms applications can be deployed via the Web if you desire.
