I have a question about converting a Forms application to APEX. Does anyone have a feeling for how long it might take? For example, if you were quoting, would you say one hour per form or one week per form or what? As an overall typical figure?

One approach is to write te whole application again. Or, I've been reading in the Application Express Application Migration Guide about going via the Forms2XML conversion tool. The Guide makes it sound simple. Is it? For example, I have been told this, "The migration tool may be appealing but experience has shown that automation covers a mere 5% of the actual conversion process, leaving the rest to adjustment and refinement of the Forms application meta data, mandatory customization and acceptance testing." Does that sound correct? That the tool is in fact useless?

Thank you for any insight.
