In this article by Douwe Pieter Van Den Bos, we will see what we need to get things ready for our Forms Conversion project. We need to gather all our original Forms, Reports, Menus, and Libraries so that we can generate the APEX project. We will need to get the XML sources by using the tools in the Oracle Developer Suite. Of course, we will learn to understand these newly created sources and what they mean to us. Before we can create our APEX applications using the Forms Conversion tool, it would be nice to design and implement the target database.Read Preparing Your Forms Conversion Using Oracle Application Express (APEX) in full

As SharePoint and the underlying .NET Framework developed over the years, more readymade controls have become available for us to use in our applications. Such controls allow us to drop common, and often complex, features into our site. For example, if we would like to add user registration and login features (often referred to as personalization and membership) to our site, it is a chore to build everything we require (registration form with validation, login box, password reminder, change password, etc.) each time we build a site. Microsoft has built these controls for us so that we can easily add them to our site. In this article by Mike Poole, we will examine the use of these controls.
Very occasionally, we find that we are not able to do what we would like to do with the SharePoint configuration that comes "out of the box". A common example of this is using forms authentication in our site. Later on in the article, we will also make some configuration changes to SharePoint and associated products, such as Internet Information Services (IIS), SQL Server, and Visual Studio, to demonstrate how forms authentication can be enabled.Read Using ASP.NET Controls in SharePoint in full
