I would suggest trying it for free on the web to see how well it works. You start with the free version, which is version 5.,1 and it's really good. Once you download it and implement it, you have the newest version. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I would rate Apex 10 out of 10.

We are just customers and end-users of the product. We are still running a test, or a POC, to see if we like how the system operates for our organization. I would rate the solution at a six out of ten. If it had VPN process management, I would likely rate it higher. While I would recommend the solution, it would depend on an organization's requirements.

The forums are quick, and I follow those to lookup features, and I just recall it. I follow all the online seminars and that was enough for me. There are some restrictions when using this product, but it can be valuable for developing and integrated with E-Business Suite. Because in some instances, some tools aren't available in the E-Business Suite environment. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Oracle Application Express (APEX) an eight.

In order to go with APEX, you need to know everything about Oracle as a database, starting from a secure fundamental as the beginning, PL/SQL, and administration of the database. You have to know about HTML5, JavaScript query, and jQuery. I would rate APEX a seven out of ten. The drawback of APEX is the relation between APEX and Oracle, there is no relation between APEX and other databases. It's very good for learning APEX and it is stable. Your company has to understand how to invest in it. It is a wonderful database. If it's Oracle, it is the best one in the world. So when we invest in people, invest in Oracle, we will get our results. Everything is available and everything can be developed with any applications.

We are a consultancy firm for IT purposes, software. Especially, we are engaged in the insurance and banking finance sector. We have a very large and deep knowledge of accounting software. Our team is very experienced, senior developers, and business analysts. We are migrating our Oracle Forms to APEX. In the future, we will continue to use APEX. I would highly recommend this product to others who are interested in using it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

APEX is a pretty old application and a pretty old environment. Most people are usually trying to get rid of it rather than bringing it onboard. For anyone still considering it, I strongly suggest going to the cloud application because the general strategy of Oracle Corporation is to support applications on the cloud. There are multiple other solutions to consider from Oracle or other vendors as well. On a scale of one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Oracle Application Express depending on the task. For some tasks, it is just perfect. You can say it would be an eight or nine-out-of-ten for quickly creating an application that does not need strong security. But for some tasks, like when you try enhancing an application, the score is pretty low. In that case, I would give the product a three or a four.

My advice for anybody who is implementing APEX is to use the default parameters and do not do anything that is customized. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Once you start to develop with APEX, you will be hated by programmers and coders. They will want to show you that they can do the same as you can do. My advice would be to just use this solution. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

I think it's a very good solution for developing web applications. It's very easy to expand the web application and have strong security in the functionality and availability on the Oracle APEX. I think if some company chooses Oracle APEX as a solution, it's a better base for any web development. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate APEX as absolutely a 10. When I started to work in my company they solved a lot of problems for creating a small application, a small form for reporting for anything by using Oracle APEX. Now that I use Oracle APEX I think it is the best solution for my development.
