Can CloudIO use existing Oracle Applications login credentials?

Yes, one can use their existing Oracle EBS username & password to sign into CloudIO.

How does it connect to Oracle Applications Database?

CloudIO uses JDBC to natively connect to the Oracle Database, similar to OA Framework, ADF & Oracle D2K Forms.

Can it invoke Oracle Standard Screens? (Zoom Functionality)

Yes, CloudIO can invoke both the OA Framework or Jinitiator Forms from within CloudIO screens either on a button click or through a link.

Does it support Descriptive & Key Flex Fields?

Yes. Flex fields can be embedded natively into the form along with other screens. Thereby the end user need not know that it's a flex field.

What about the logic written in D2K Forms?

Hopefully, most of the business logic is written in PL/SQL, in such cases, we can reuse all of the logic written in PL/SQL and any code written in D2K are mostly UI related which is much easier to implement in CloudIO without writing a single line of code.

Does it impact Oracle Patches?

No. That's a good part about applications build with CloudIO. With CloudIO, say goodbye to those complex and costly customization to Oracle EBS and upgrading Oracle EBS will become a breeze.
