This post addresses the changes in UI design that we made when updating the latest version of ILIAS.
With 20 years of know-how built in to the system, a software development team of Oracle Forms experts, and a user community of several thousands of users, a switch to a different technology would cause a significant amount of change. Change with which military organizations don’t deal well.
Apart from that, Oracle Forms still beats many other technologies in terms of speed of development.
All things considered and being the Oracle Forms experts we are, we decided to “see how far we could push this Forms thing to make it look good”. The results are satisfied customers and more enthusiastic prospects.
This document provides an overview of the changes we have made.
