I already posted about the function for getting the IR query here:
Now, I decided to create a dynamic action plugin based on that function. The plugin has been submitted to the plugin directory at http://www.apex-plugin.com/ and should appear there soon.
I was asked to review this book and write a couple of words about it. Of course I didn't go through all the 444 pages of the book because I don't have enough time. From what I could read and review, I can say that this book contains a lot of well explained examples for almost all APEX features. So, if you are new to APEX and want to speed up your learning process then this is a good choice. Experienced APEX developers can also use this book as a reference.
The following question was recently posted on an internal mailing list:
The Oracle APEX listener is one possible gateway to run Oracle Application Express besides the Oracle http server (OHS), the embedded pl/sql gateway (which is the http server included in the Oracle database as part of the XML DB) and other open source alternatives.
