During the keynote my camera died...which meant that I had absolutely no way to take pictures because it joined my phone which died last night. Naturally I left the charger in the room...id10t.
Anyway, I ran to the Press Room in the hopes that I would find someone who could charge the phone, the camera and I could get a decent wifi connection. On my way there one of the session signs caught my eye, "Exadata" something.
Parked everything in the Press Room (Reef A) and went old school bringing a pen and a notebook to the presentation.
I never really had a look at the Advanced Attributes of the Interactive Report, but I missed out on some really cool features. It shows that just like Tom Kyte, I learn a new thing every day...
Let's say I've an Interactive Report with amounts per department. The Report ID Item allows me to show a different saved view of the Interactive Report based on who's logged in and in which department they are. You find the Report ID in the APEX_WORKSHEET_RPTS view.
I'm not talking about how APEX internally or within the database works, I'm talking about how to best manage it from an infrastructure point of view.
I recently raised the issue with my client about how they were using APEX. I'm not here as an APEX consultant, but they didn't have a lot of experience in-house and the DBA who got it implemented had been trying for years. So I wrote up my thoughts and passed them along to my supervisor who then shared them with others.
