Conversion is to bring the data from other (non-OraApps) system to Oracle-Application system. This is one time activity (bring account details, transactions, orders, receipts and so on). So conversion itself is a project.

Interfaces are Concurrent PRograms/Program sets (pl/sql, pro*C, unix scripts, executables) . Interfaces are basically of two types (Oracle supplied (vanila programs eg:Autoinvoice in AR) and created by developer).

Hope this clarifies the concepts.

Upgrading your data to a newer version is not Conversion, Its Data Migration.

Conversion is as correctly mentioned, a One time activity to Convert the Data from a Legacy System to be loaded into Apps Tables.

Interfaces: They are periodically run for exchange of data between Apps and Non-Apps Systems.

Conversions: It's nothing but transfer of data from other application to oracle application(it's one time data transfer). eg SAP(data) to Oracle APPS(data).

Interfaces: It's nothing but transfer of data from other application to oracle application, but it not a one time transfer of data, it executes whenever they want to load data from legacy system to oracle (it holds max validation of the codes with all possibilities) while transferring data we shouldn't discard any data.

But conversion, we misses some data we can do data entry for updation, interface it acts as a standard pgm which executes continuously may be daily,monthly, weekly dependent on requirement.
