Oracle Application Express (APEX) Initial Setup

Head of Development and Implementation at a pharma/biotech company with 201-500 employees
I remember the first installation and that time the installation was a little difficult and maybe even very complex. But after maybe 10 or 15 installations now, it is very easy because I know the product better. After gaining some experience, it is very easy. What was a little difficult the first time is that you must create the network on the database. You must create a different tablespace. After installation, you must use the WebLogic server to launch Oracle APEX form. Then you set the web service and then create WebLogic services. There are a lot of steps there and it is a little different and a bit difficult when you have not had the experience. When creating projects it might take five or six months for a big production. But I have also completed some products in only two weeks of development. It is very different for different projects. The project that took only two weeks for developing was because of the size of the project. It was small and I only had five or six forms to build. On the big project that took six months for development, it was because there were a lot of forms, a lot of objects and the project was a lot more complicated. View full review »

The initial setup is quite straightforward and very easy. With one person, it took half an hour to install and get running. We have two people to maintain this solution. View full review »

The installation is quite difficult. Because somehow it doesn't work if you begin with a clean installation. It's much easier to use it with the cloud setup or do a box. If you want to install it from scratch, then it's a bit difficult. View full review »
