Oracle Forms Interview Questions


1) Explain what is Oracle Forms? 

Oracle Forms is a software product for creating screens that interact with an Oracle database.  It has an IDE including a property sheet, object navigator and code editor that uses PL/SQL.

2) Explain what are the Oracle forms services components include? 

Oracle forms consist of

  • Client: Client sends the HTTP requests
  • Forms Listener Servlet: It start, stop and communicate with the Forms Runtime Process
  • Forms Runtime Process: It executes the code contained in a particular forms application
  • Database: The data fetched from the database

  • Support for Unicode columns
  • guiMode configuration parameter
  • Forms metric agent
  • Support for URLs in image items and iconic buttons
  • Oracle real user experience insight

4) Explain what is the difference between CALL_FORM, NEW_FORM and OPEN_FORM?

  • CALL_FORM: It starts a new form and pass control to it
  • New_FORM: It terminates the current form and replace it with the indicated new form
  • OPEN_FORM: It opens the indicated new form without replacing or suspending the parent form.

5) List out the Oracle Forms Configuration files?

Oracle Forms configuration files include,

  • Base HTML files (base.htm, basejini.htm, basejpi.htm, and baseie.htm)
  • env
  • cfg
  • cfg

6) In Oracle Forms Report, what is the maximum length of Record group Column? What are the different types of Record Groups?

The maximum length of Record group column names cannot exceed 30 characters.  Different types of Record Groups include

  • Query Record Groups
  • State Record Groups
  • NonQuery Record Groups

7) Mention what is the sequence of firing triggers in forms?

The sequence of firing triggers in forms, when forms open is

  • Pre-form
  • Pre-block
  • Pre-recorded
  • Pre-text-item
  • When-new-form-instance
  • When-new-block-instance
  • When-new-record-instance
  • When-new-item-instance

8) Mention what the “LOV of Validation” property of an item? Mention what is the difference between lov and list item? 

When LOV for validation is set to True, Oracle Forms compares the current value of the text item to the values in the first column displayed in the LOV.

LOV is a property where as list item is an item.  A list item can only have one column while lov can have one or more columns.

9) Explain how can you use the same LOV for 2 columns? 

We can use the same LOV for 2 columns by passing the return values in global values and using the global values in the code.

10) Mention what are bind variables? 

The bind variables are used in report 6i for replacing the single parameter in the select statement.

11) Explain how one can iterate through items and records in a specified block? 

To iterate through items and records in a specified block, one can use NEXT_FIELD to iterate through items in a specific block and NEXT_RECORD to iterate through records in a block.

12) Explain can you convert or reverse engineer a FMX back to a FMB file? 

No it is not possible to convert or reverse engineer a FMX back to a FMB files, to ensure they are not lost.

13) Is it possible to execute a dynamic SQL from forms? 

Yes, it is possible to execute a dynamic SQL from forms by using the FORMS_DDL built in or by calling the DBNS_SQL database package from forms.

14) Which parameter can be used to set read level consistency across multiple queries?

Read only

15) From which designation is it preferred to send the output to the printed?


16) What are difference between post database commit and post-form commit?

Post-form commit fires once during the post and commit transactions process, after the database commit occurs. The post-form-commit trigger fires after inserts, updates and deletes have been posted to the database but before the transactions have been finalized in the issuing the command. The post-database-commit trigger fires after oracle forms issues the commit to finalized transactions.

17) What are the different display styles of list items?

Pop_listText_listCombo box

18) With which function of summary item is the compute at options required?

percentage of total functions.

19) What are parameters?

Parameters provide a simple mechanism for defining and setting the values of inputs that are required by a form at startup. Form parameters are variables of type char,number,date that you define at design time.

20) What are the three types of user exits available?

Oracle Precompiler exits, Oracle call interface, NonOracle user exits.

21) How many windows in a form can have console?

Only one window in a form can display the console, and you cannot change the console assignment at runtime.

22) What is an administrative (privileged) user?

Oracle DBAs and operators typically use administrative accounts to manage the database and database instance. An administrative account is a user that is granted SYSOPER or SYSDBA privileges. SYSDBA and SYSOPER allow access to a database instance even if it is not running. Control of these privileges is managed outside of the database via password files and special operating system groups. This password file is created with the orapwd utility.

23) What are the two repeating frame always associated with matrix object?

One down repeating frame below one across repeating frame.

24) An Open Form Can Not Be Execute The Call_form Procedure If You Chain Of Called Forms Has Been Initiated By Another Open Form? 


25) What Is New_form Built-in? 

When one form invokes another form by executing new_form oracle form exits the first form and releases its memory before loading the new form calling new form completely replace the first with the second. If there are changes pending in the first form, the operator will be prompted to save them before the new form is loaded.

26) What Is The Difference. When Flex Mode Is Mode On And When It Is Off? 

When flex mode is on, reports automatically resizes the parent when the child is resized.

27) What Is The Difference. When Confine Mode Is On And When It Is Off? 

When confine mode is on, an object cannot be moved outside its parent in the layout.

35) What Is A Timer? 

Timer is an "internal time clock" that you can programmatically create to perform an action each time the times.

36) What Are The Two Phases Of Block Coordination? 

There are two phases of block coordination: the clear phase and the population phase. During, the clear phase, Oracle Forms navigates internally to the detail block and flushes the obsolete detail records. During the population phase, Oracle Forms issues a SELECT statement to repopulate the detail block with detail records associated with the new master record. These operations are accomplished through the execution of triggers.

37) What Are Most Common Types Of Complex Master-detail Relationships? 

There are three most common types of complex master-detail relationships:

  • master with dependent details
  • master with independent details
  • detail with two masters

38) What Is A Text List? 

The text list style list item appears as a rectangular box which displays the fixed number of values. When the text list contains values that can not be displayed, a vertical scroll bar appears, allowing the operator to view and select undisplayed values.

40) What Are The Default Extensions Of The Files Created By Library Module? 

The default file extensions indicate the library module type and storage format .pll - pl/sql library module binary.

41) What Are The Coordination Properties In A Master-detail Relationship? 

The coordination properties are

o   Deferred

o   Auto-Query

These Properties determine when the population phase of block coordination should occur.
