Oracle Application Express (APEX) resources, news, and support articles.

Expert Oracle Application Express (second edition) available

During my holiday Apress released the second edition of Expert Oracle Application Express.
In the second edition we not only updated the content to APEX 5.0, but there're some new chapters in too from new authors. In total you get 14 chapters from 14 different authors.
I believe it's a very nice book with great content and it's for a good cause.

New APEX Blog

This is a new blog on APEX. I expect a lots of good stuff there in the future.

I think this is worth of looking at and maybe the APEX team considers this as an improvement for the future release.

APEX 5 - Opening and Closing Modal Window

This example is showing how to open a Modal Page from any element in your application. It is easy to get it working using some standards like a button or a link in a report.

This example is also showing how to get the success message displayed on the parent page after closing of the Modal Page.
