Open Source Cool Web App with PL/SQL and Formspider

As an independent consultant, Nicholas Mwaura needed a Formspider demo application so that he can show the best of the product to his potential clients.

However, all the sample applications on the Formspider web site were developer oriented. We had no application online which consultants, IT managers can use to impress other stakeholders with Formspider. (Facepalm)

Nicholas decided to built this demo application himself even though this was going to be the first time he is going to work with Formspider. The tool encouraged him that much.

Think about this for a minute. When we learn a new tool, most of us are happy if we build a Hello World application as our first one. Nicholas built a demo application to demonstrate the best of Formspider. This speaks volumes about his high technical skills and how Formspider empowers Oracle Forms and PL/SQL developers.

You can watch the entire webinar below. The webinar consists of four parts:

1) Introduction to Formspider by me

2) Nicholas Mwaura on Formspider

3) Development of the Demo Appliaction

4) Questions and Answers

Below are the slides Nicholas used during the webinar:

Open Source Demo Application

Nicholas is sharing his work as an open source application with the Formspider community. This is indeed very nice him and we are much indebted to him for his generosity.

You can use the application at this link.

You can download the source code of the application from this link.

If you’d like to contribute to this open source project, here is the project’s GitHub page.
