We are running Forms 4.5 (character mode in emulator) against the Oracle 7.3.4 database and we are looking to upgrade with, of course, minimum effort. This means remaining in character mode. We tried to upgrade hardware, but that made us upgrade OS (SCO OpenServer from 5.0.4 to 5.0.6) which was disaster, because new OS did not work well with Oracle 7.3.4 database.

Can someone advise me, what will happen if I upgrade the database to Oracle 9i on Linux and stay with Forms 4.5? What will happen if I upgrade Forms 4.5 to Forms 6i (character mode on Linux)?

I think there are some problems in doing so, the character mode is obsolete. And some functionality is not just there anymore. But I could be wrong. Study otn.oracle.com, for some answers, search for "migration".
