    For simple Oracle applications, you can download Oracle Developer from Technet. It will help you build front ends and connect easily with the Oracle DB.

    If the apps are very simple and the number of users is small, use MS-Access.

    Good luck.

    Thank you very much dknight,

    Can ms-access connects to oracle db?
    Is Oracle Developer same as Dev 6i or JDeveloper?
    Which is better to use Dev 6i or JDeveloper?
    I puzzled with lots of front end dev available.

    Cheers,

    Absolutely, Access can connect to an Oracle database. In fact, I think there is no easier way to prototype an application then using Access and Oracle.

    Thanks Jeff,

    I just want to zero into the easiest front end developer.
    I'm designing a simple apps. There is the main menu/screen
    then options: like 1. data entry/update/delete 2. inquiries
    3. reports(printing/gen)

    Does access have reports printing? I'm planning to buy
    access books soon.

    Cheers,

    Absolutely. Access has reporting, queries, forms, menus, etc. All the stuff you would expect in a development package.

    Many developers consider Access to be low tech.

    In my opinion, it is simple and effective for rapid development. In addition, there are many books available to help you get started quickly.

    Good luck.

    As long as it can produce the output I wanted, I'll go for it.

    Thanks again Dave
