OTN APEX Forum Link

Oracle again changed the layout of the forum. For me, the old link didn't work any more. In case you have problems finding it, here is the new link:

https://community.oracle.com/community/database/developer-tools/application_express

If you go to the forum and search for example for "APEX" or "Application Exp", you will see no results. Typing in "Application Ex" will find "Application Express".

Next ORCLAPEX NOVA Meetup: July 17th

The next Meetup for the ORCLAPEX NOVA Meetup Group will be this Thursday, July 17th at 7:00PM at Oracle Reston.  (Details: http://www.meetup.com/orclapex-NOVA/events/192592582/)

We're going to try the "Open Mic" format that has been wildly successful at KScope for the past few years.  The rules are quite simple: anyone can demonstrate their APEX-based solution for up to 10 minutes.  No need to reserve a spot or spend too much time planning.  And as always, no slides will be permitted - strictly demo.

Ein MUSS für jeden Entwickler!

KScope14 (Sunday) - APEX Symposium - before noon

Sunday is typically the day where the Oracle development team is on stage to talk about what they do, give insight in the product etc. - for me personally one of the highlights of the conference.

The Awesome Evolution of Oracle Application Express 5.0 by Joel Kallman

Joel demoed HTML DB 1.6 again, the predecessor of APEX - went live in 2004, so 10 years ago (time goes fast!). Next he timed doing development in APEX 4.2 compared to APEX 5.0.  

APEX 5.0 - Rejoin Session

This great feature is finaly there. I remember asking for a solution back in 2007. I needed to send emails with application links to my users. If they would receive an email they would click on the link and were supposed to land on a particular page. The problem was that they would already have an open session and they expected the link to go straight to the page without asking for a new login. The solution I found was quite tricky and it stopped working with the version 4.1 because of the changed session handling. APEX 5.0 finaly introduces this option out of the box.

APEX 5.0 - Page Designer; immediate feedback and more

In APEX 5.0 you (can) develop in the new Page Designer.

The Page Designer makes you way more productive, less clicks and quicker results. You have to get used to it, and you probably want a big monitor (time to ask your boss!), but once all that is done - you will love it.

The Page Designer is so intuitive and attention was put in the details. When you make a mistake APEX gives you immediate feedback. Here's a screenshot:

APEX 5.0 - Button Appearance (template options + Font Awesome)

With the new template, the new buttons for example are highly customisable in APEX 5.0
(icon on the left or right, spacing between, etc.)
