I have never selected and never will Oracle products to develop software but most of the time (always?) you do not choose your boss or client dictates it.

Regards
Michel

Wait a minute!

You are developing a project using Oracle, so it must be you who chose it (unless it was - as Michel said - your boss or client). As you didn't specify it, I *suppose* it was you who chose it.

If that's so, how come YOU ask US why you did that? I have no idea, you chose it (instead of VB, .Net etc.). Why did you choose it?

That question makes no sense to me.
Oracle is relational database management system.
VB is procedural programming language.
.NET is a software framework.
It would make sense, if you compared Oracle to other RDBMSs (Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, DB2, Informix, ...).
The same with other tools - why are you using VB and not Java? Why .NET and not some framework based on Java?
Now you are comparing totally different tools used for different task.

Either your application needs to work with data, so it has to store it (RDBMSs are most common/convenient way) or not and you do not need Oracle or any other RDBMS.

Flyboy,

this question was originally located in Forms forum (someone moved it over here), so I believe that question should have been "Why Oracle Forms and not VB, .Net, Java, whatever?". Data is probably stored in an Oracle database, and he chose Forms to manipulate that data.
