Working with the APEX Tree

I found a great blog post by Tom Petrus that summarizes the power of the APEX tree here: http://tpetrus.blogspot.be/2013/01/working-with-tree-in-apex.html

The post details a number of different attributes of the tree and how to interact with it.  It starts simple and shows how to get a tree reference and gradually gets more and more detailed, including how to search the tree and how to handle when a node is selected or even double clicked.

Oracle APEX @ OOW

Looks like the Oracle APEX team's annual OOW site is live here:  http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=67165:1  This site provides a list of APEX-related sessions at OOW in both a calendar and list view. It is also mobile friendly, which will make it nice to have while at the conference itself.

But the big news is spelled out right on the home page:

APEX 4.2.3 available for download

A new patch set of Oracle Application Express (APEX) is available for download, the latest version of APEX is now 4.2.3.00.08.

As we are used to patch releases; it contains bug fixes, updated external libraries and updated or new packaged applications. This release is not different; for example Twitter Bootstrap 3.0 and AnyGantt 4.3 are now included and two new packaged app called Data Reporter and Opportunity Tracker are available.

#OOW13

I'm going to be busy.

Here's my list of events:

Oracle Application Express 4.2.3 now available

Just in time for Oracle OpenWorld 2013, Oracle Application Express 4.2.3 is now released and available for download.  If you wish to download the full release of Oracle Application Express 4.2.3, you can get it from the Downloads page on OTN.

New Book: Expert Oracle Application Express Security

I remember vividly meeting with Jonathan Gennick at RMOUG 2012 at the Apress booth.  As always, he asked if I was up for writing something APEX-related.  And as always, I politely declined, as I just had too much going on at the time.  However, before he let me leave the booth, he pledged that I didn't have to write something that was 800+ pages, and that a niche topic book that was "only" a couple hundred pages would work.  Time to reconsider.

APEX 5.0 Impressions

I had the opportunity to sit through two APEX 5.0 presentations yesterday at APEXposed in Montreal - one by Joel Kallman, and the other by David Peake.

By far, the most anticipated feature is the new page layout UI.  This interface is designed to do two things: make arranging regions and items easier, and allowing for batch updating of common item attributes.  While the demonstrations were a bit rough and the UI is clearly not finished, this direction represents a lot of promise for APEX developers, as it is the one area that APEX has been lacking since day one.

ODTUG Sunday Symposium @ OpenWorld

Wow, it's been almost a year since I've blogged.  Guess that's what happens when you get busy!

APEX Printing in Depth - OOW Sunday Symposium

If you're going to Oracle Open World and will be there for the ODTUG Sunday APEX Symposium, then you're in for quite an interesting set of sessions. When discussing what would be a good topic for this year's set of presentations, we wanted to focus on an area within APEX from which everyone could gain some benefit.
