This is the situation. You have an Oracle Forms application server 10g, maybe even headstart and/or webutil included and you want to start using 11g, on the server and as a developer on the client... then say goodbye to Oracle OAS/DeveloperSuite 10g and hello WebFusion...
Its WebLogic and Fusion only. On the server as on the client (as a developer). Thus, start downloading! You need the proper JDK, WebLogic and Forms software. When you have a linux server and a windows client, then you need to download an estimate of 6 GigaByte of software.
Like a charm
But, the good news is, I performed the migration/upgrade with success - without using the Oracle upgrade tool - including headstart and webutil, and it works! It was a complete clean install of Oracle Weblogic and Fusion on the server. Once installed, I installed the application including headstart libraries and the webutil "plugin". All with success. Thus, don't give up it is possible and not that difficult.
Furthermore, realize that it is the true end of life of Oracle Designer...
