Say Hello to Oracle Apex and for the new Blog member too!

Hi people!

That’s my first post and I would like introduce me and this great tool what I will talk about here, at this site, but Let’s start about Oracle Application Express, or Apex, which is probably your most intention here! You can read about my history with Apex in the end of this article.

Oracle Apex is a development tool that enables you to build applications using only your web browser, using basically PL-SQL, this familiarity helps to create departmental applications. Even DBA’s can create good web applications easily. Apex is not a new tool, was first released on 2006, and previously it was called HTML DB. After 10 years of development, offers a modern IDE, and with more dedication, you can use to build complex solutions using CSS and JavaScript.

Apex also comes with a entire system to manage your development life cycle. Using the Team Development it is possible to track your project progress from brainstorm to tracking bugs and continuous maintenances.

You can start using and testing Oracle Apex right now, just accessing apex.oracle.com and creating your own workspace. Just click Get Started and select Free Workspace. Remember that should be used for educational propose.

By the way, in the next weeks and some articles from now, I intend to write about how to create an entire application, describing most of standards options and explaining Oracle Apex in details.

I start using Apex in version 2, when the standard templates produces applications that looked like Enterprise Manager some years ago. The latest version 5.02 was released in October 2015. The Apex 5 has a revolutionary IDE, which is in the same way powerful, intuitive, clean and easy to use.

Enjoy and welcome to Apex World! There is an active community on OTN that supports mostly users needs and questions through discussion web forums.

Cassiano.
