What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is how fast you can do applications compared to other frameworks, like Java and PHP. It will take you three times longer to do what you can do in Apex. You don’t have to cut through a lot of layers to get to the data in your database with Apex.

How has it helped my organization?

From a cost perspective, you can use less resources to build applications. Time to market is another improvement, because you can make applications very quickly. We used to create a NBC project with another framework and write our own modules to access the data, but Apex gives you access to data in… more »

What needs improvement?

From a technical perspective, Apex is not yet well received from developers because they think it is not mature. From my experience, I think it is just like any other NBC framework that is out there. The approach is a little bit different, and it is a different part line, but you can still achieve… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking for performance and speed for your application, I would choose Apex. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the ease with which data can be accessed and the improvements that have made the front-end look like a real application. The graphing plug-ins are really good as well.

What needs improvement?

We are excited that they are going to go into the web service world to make the rest of the APIs available. We have been looking for master detail, but that is has been improved quite a bit. Nothing is perfect though.

What other advice do I have?

It is a free product. Install it and start having fun. APEX out of the box is pretty good and very easy to get started. You can get your data out in five minutes. I’d give it an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Apex is part of your database. Everything, program logic included, is happening directly where data is, so it's fast, it's centralized and it's easy to use. It's declarative.

How has it helped my organization?

Apex can help you centralize many things. You can replace spreadsheets that are being sent back and forth with Apex, for example. It increases efficiencies and reduces man-hours.

What needs improvement?

Apex runs in a browser, so using the latest technology, like push notifications, would be good. It could also have better connections and better reporting in terms of getting files out of it. It could create a PDF rather than just showing data on the screen.

What other advice do I have?

I wouldn’t recommend an official training by Oracle. They are too long and expensive; however, there is tons of information on the web, many books, and a lot of third party trainers that run reduced versions of the introductory seminars. Apex even provides a two-day tutorial that I think is pretty… more »

What is Oracle Application Express (APEX)?

Application Express enables users to design, develop and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven applications using only web browser. The Oracle Application Express engine runs directly in the Oracle Database and exploits the database's extraordinarily scalable and efficient architecture. Its framework provides numerous security features out-of-the-box and helps authenticate users using LDAP, Oracle Single-signon, Oracle Database credentials, or HTTP Header variable.
