The Oracle Forms Server is a component of the Oracle Application Server that enables developers to deploy Forms applications across the Web. A Forms Server can be centrally deployed and managed to provide a thin client implementation across an enterprise.
To invoke an Oracle Form, enter the URL (web address) of the Forms Server. The Forms client (downloadable Java applet) will then be downloaded to the browser and the application will start within the browser window.
Forms Server was previously known as WebForms. Some people also refer to it as the Forms Services.
