spray oil and bake = fry?

Instead of frying, if I were to spray with a light coating of oil and
then bake in an oven or convection oven, would this produce a result
similar to frying? I am trying to find a lower-fat alternative to
frying which would produce a similar result. Any item, could be french
fries, chicken, etc.

"Similar" maybe -- depending on how picky you are. Frying makes use of the very high heat transfer capability of a liquid (the oil), which baking, which transfers heat through air, can't begin to match.
