    It can't hurt as long as it doesn't go too deep into Oracle internals. Basic knowledge of the optimizer and its behavior is beneficial to developers.

    You won't know until you try; download the software at www.oracle.com and start working with it. No one can tell you what YOU need to do as none of us understand your abilities.

    Do u think a person can shift to DBA from a developer role? or once he has chosen to be a developer he can remain there only?

    Please read my previous response again; you've been asked to download the Oracle forms and reports software to start learning it. No one can answer that question but you, and you won't be able to do that until you at least make an attempt at learning reports and forms.

    Many do just that. One is not destined to be a developer forever if one wants to move to other areas of Oracle.

    David,

    Please permit me to add.. The best way to learn anything is to download the software and learn it hands on as you have suggested. Rote memorization of commands and functions will give birth to a ''Stunted Developer'' instead of a real hands on ''Oracle Developer''.

    I must also add that there is this negative perception about Indian software developers in the West and precisely the kind of questions that sends wrong signals to people have been asked here.

    Asking for dumps, shortcuts, spoon feeding etc does little not only for the image portrayed but also for the individual in his quest for real knowledge.
    cheers
    Ramji

    You should be very strong SQL and PL/SQL to learn and work on oracle forms and reports. All the topics in the sql and pl/sql are required.
