Developer 2000 on the web

Developer 2000 on the web

Hi, I am thinking to migrate some aplications in Developer 2000 to the web.

What about security?

Oracle say that all data send is encrypted before getting to the server. Its that true?.

Exists other problems that I have to consider?.

RE: Developer 2000 on the web

I'm just about to start a project which involves migrating from Dev 2k -> web (actually our starting point is Oracle Case but we will be developing using Des 2k)

Oracle tell me that *all* GUI forms can be converted to the web and I haven't found anything to contradict that; the conversion process seems to be quite slick.

If Oracle say it's encrypted - it probably is <smile>

Let us know how you get on.


RE: Developer 2000 on the web

Thank's Mike.

I think during the process of convertion new points will appear.


RE: Developer 2000 on the web

I have several GUI forms that I would like to migrate to a browser form, what is the best way to pursue this migration? Has anyone actually converted existing developer forms to browser forms?

RE: Developer 2000 on the web

have Oracle say in which way is it encrypted ?

I come from web development background.
And normally for encryption, we use SSL
or maybe some kind of DLL on the client machine
that interface with the client to encrypt.

I am not about to put all my faith in whatever
Oracle said yet.

The main reason is Oracle is marketing driven.
They are not so much different from MS.
But they do have better product especially the

I guess what is important in the migration is
to understand what it means to have your
application running via web browser.
The implication, security concerns....
and measures to take...

Treat it like a full-fledge project
with all the thinking involving the
whole system behind... not
just conversion alone...

RE: Developer 2000 on the web


This is that Oracle documentation says about encryption:

Data passed between the database, the Forms Server, and the Forms Client is automatically encrypted
before-and decrypted after-transmission by the following protocols:

RSA RC4 40-bit encryption (for transmissions between the Forms Client and the Forms Server)
SQL*Net SNS/ANO (for transmissions between the Forms Server and the database server)

Note: Encryption is provided by default, but can be disabled.

RE: Developer 2000 on the web

I believe Form Client referes to 'traditional'
client interface rather than that of a web browser.
