At A Glance

The decision to switch to JEE and Oracle ADF represents an important step towards a more modern, future-proof application, while a major challenge, as it brings entirely new development paradigms with it. At the same time no one wants to write off the investment in Oracle Forms applications. PITSS offers support through proven migration tools, best practices and experienced consultants. This reduces the risks typical of a major technology change and at the same time, the economic implementation.

Why PITSS?

With PITSS.CON each Oracle Forms application can be migrated, partially automated, and modernized to ADF.  This can be done in a fraction of the time it takes for a purely manual changeover. With PITSS.CON-based approaches, coaching and training, your team will be fully productive in Java and JEE in a short amount of time.  This allows for a successful migration to ADF for even the most complex applications.

The Migration Process

The migration process consists of three phases:

  1. Preparation
    • Analysis of the Forms Application
    • Code-cleanup
    • Transfer of business logic into the database
    • If necessary: ​​Building Web Services (SOA-ready ness)
    • Training of employees in ADF
    • Retrieve User Stories
  2. Migration
    • If necessary: ​​migration to Oracle Forms 11g
    • Design and optimization of the architecture
    • Implementation of central functions
    • Carrying out the reaction Oracle Forms to ADF
  3. Fine tuning
    • Adjustments to the model layer and UI
      rework if necessary
    • Redesign of individual components
    • Integration and Test

Continuous quality assurance, documentation and coaching by experienced consultants PITSS ensure the timely implementation of the migration process.

Modules

PITSS.CON ADF Migration Edition comprises the following modules:

Technology Base

The PITSS.CON Technology Base is the foundation for efficient and effective application management. With its clearly structured repository approach, PITSS.CON organizes application information to make Oracle Forms applications significantly easier to understand, control, develop and prepare for Forms to ADF migrations. It covers the entire life cycle management process, enabling organizations to better meet today’s business challenges.

Maintenance & Development

PITSS.CON Maintenance & Development revolutionizes Oracle Forms application development and maintenance – shortening development projects, improving application quality and enabling standardized application code.

Application Analysis

PITSS.CON Application Analysis delivers in-depth insight into even the most complex Oracle Forms applications. With its 360° view of the entire application, PITSS.CON Application Analysis lets you quickly and precisely analyze the impact of proposed changes, identify obsolete or problematic code and streamline the Forms migration to Java ADF and  possibly even a transition to a service-oriented architecture.

Application Engineering

PITSS.CON Application Engineering (Forms SOA Suite) brings the business and technical advantages of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) to Oracle Forms applications. Ensuring complete investment protection, PITSS.CON enables organizations to easily and efficiently migrate Oracle Forms applications to ADF.

ADF Assistant

The PITSS.CON ADF Assistant is specially designed to boost productivity for Forms migration of legacy Oracle Forms applications to the JEE architecture, Oracle JDeveloper 11g and the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF). Besides paving the way for Oracle Forms customers to move into a new state of the art software-architecture, it also enables the integration of your application into a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment.
