Oracle Forms, part of the Oracle Fusion middleware system, is designed for enterprises to rapidly develop applications that support database transactions. The "Oracle Objects for OLE" interface allows you to use OCX (OLE Control extension) files in your Oracle Forms project just as you would in any other application. OCX, a Microsoft Windows control object, enables your application to have tight integration with the Windows operating system.
