More GeneXus Pros »

"This product will speed up development time with helpful production aids.""It's fairly easy to make a user-friendly interface.""Efficient software delivery and a solution that works quickly.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""This is a good application for quickly creating public applications.""With only a browser, it is very easy to develop in a web environment.""One of the most valuable features is that we can develop everything locally and deploy it for different kinds of operators in different locations, so we can do our job in one piece. The benefit of that is that others can use these applications. They connect to the internet to do these kinds of applications based on the permissions for those users.""I like how we can actively develop and customize APEX because it's on the same database."

More GeneXus Cons »

"Being able to only design with HTML and CSS can be limiting as to what can be accomplished.""It has a bit of a strict framework, you have to make all the time adjustments in their JavaScript. Another downside is that it's only available for Oracle databases.""Reporting needs to be accessed via third party tools.""Better connection and integration with non-Oracle databases is needed.""There is a problem with security because the applications store passwords in the configuration files.""Connections to the application pages are not handled well and at times more than one user can be accessing an application with the same ID.""Fixing bugs is difficult because of how the HTML code is generated. It is not always broadly compatible with browsers.""Visual Builder and APEX should meld in one product."
