Hi all,

I want to call another application and return control back to the calling application. When I exit the called application using api_application.close the whole application is exited and never returns to calling application. How can I achieve this?

Hi, I was waiting for an answer. Is this question very simple or something.

I like to develop application module-wise. My Invoice, LPO etc. are separate applications. I call these applications from a main menu which is full screen with two tab pages. The called modules are also full screen to make maximum use of the screen real estate. This is why I asked this question. If there is tutorial or link please direct me to there.

Currently when I close the sub-application the control do not return to my menu. I need to press browser back button twice to bring it to the menu.

Hi George, Any particular reason why you want to build this way?

Hi Yalim,

My menu has five parts. A. First page has two blocks, 1.Favourites. 2.Recently opened. B. Second page has three blocks. 3.Main Modules (OPERATIONS, FINANCE, STOCK), 4.Separate tree menu for each of these modules and 5.A complete list of all the menus. (This is to enabled searching of menu items as user may not remember the location) Each user may have a different menu as assigned to them. I find a separate menu screen only can do this structure. Another reason is to use my sub modules in full screen. Most of the screens are based on many tables and need to display much details

I see no reason for this application to consist of several modules technically. Could you email me screenshots or mockups? I will send you a URL for a huge application we built with seven different modules which is in fact implemented as 1 application.

Hello Yalim, we are looking for the best way to convert our Oracle Forms to something more up tp date and the formspider solution looks very inspiring at the moment. But there are some concerns as well. Am I right that if we have for example 8 heavy forms - we need to join them in one application? I have some concerns regarding the scalability and the final "weight" of this application. Could you please also share a link to huge application you mentioned above for us to check the way how it works? My email is hotspot163@yahoo.com

So far in our case we would prefer to build 1 separate application per heavy form and call them via the global menu. But in this case we have not find the way how to use one default Oracle forms menu for each application as in formspider the menu is not a separate module as it is in Oracle Forms. So we can't "add" it to the application and reuse it. Instead we need to copy-paste the code which is not a nice solution.

Probably our concerns regarding "one form - one application" can be disregarded - that's why I m trying to get an answer in this forum.

Thanks in advance and looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards, Anatoly
