Oracle again changed the layout of the forum. For me, the old link didn't work any more. In case you have problems finding it, here is the new link:
If you go to the forum and search for example for "APEX" or "Application Exp", you will see no results. Typing in "Application Ex" will find "Application Express".
Each of the found links will have a funny description saying:
"An error occurred processing (more...)
This great feature is finaly there. I remember asking for a solution back in 2007. I needed to send emails with application links to my users. If they would receive an email they would click on the link and were supposed to land on a particular page. The problem was that they would already have an open session and they expected the link to go straight to the page without asking for a new login. (more...)

Last week I was presenting at OGh (ORACLE GEBRUIKERSCLUB HOLLAND) APEX World
. My topic was "APEX 4.2 Application Deployment and Application Management". I can only recommend this conference to all the APEX users in Europe. This is definitely the biggest APEX conference on our continent. If you don't travel to ODTUG then this is something you shouldn't miss. They have an international track where you can listen to the well known APEX developers and (more...)
There is a nice series of videos regarding APEX 5.0 Page Designer
on YouTube. You can watch it here
. David Peake is showing how the new Page Designer works. It is worth of having look at it and much easier that finding it out yourself. Enjoy.
I just noticed that http://www.apex-plugin.com
is programmed using php and jomla. Shouldn't it use Oracle APEX?
I already posted about the function for getting the IR query here: http://www.deneskubicek.blogspot.de/2013/05/getting-interactive-report-query.html
Now, I decided to create a dynamic action plugin based on that function. The plugin has been submitted to the plugin directory at http://www.apex-plugin.com/
and should appear there soon. If you want to see how it works and download the code, you can do it here as well: https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=43045:1
I was asked to review this
book and write a couple of words about it. Of course I didn't go through all the 444 pages of the book because I don't have enough time. From what I could read and review, I can say that this book contains a lot of well explained examples for almost all APEX features. So, if you are new to APEX and want to speed up your learning process then (more...)
One of the first things I checked in APEX 5.0 EA was the region positioning of the sub regions. I was positively surprised to see that I can now position the regions next to each other as well. In earlier versions the only option was underneath. Having this possibility it will be much easier to create complex forms where you need to take care of positioning multiple items in more than one column. At (more...)
This is definitely the best APEX version ever. I just tested it and it took less than a couple of minutes to get used to it. You know how hard it is to accept major changes. This time it was easy. The changes made in the builder will for sure increase the productivity although this was never a weakness of APEX. There are of course some things missing (or I just couldn't find them) like (more...)
Our next training will be held in Bensheim on 26th of May 2014. You can find the details here
Die Erfolgreiche Trainingserie geht auch in diesem Jahr weiter. Dietmar Aust
und ich organisieren ein weiteres Best Practice Training am 26.05.2014 in Bensheim. Diesmal findet das Training auf der Basis von APEX 4.2 statt. Nutzen Sie die Möglichkeit von Experten zu lernen und melden Sie sich an. Einen Link zu der Anmeldeseite finden (more...)
example seems still to be interesting to some people in the community. The number of requests and questions I am getting regarding it forced me to update it. Now the rendering is using an application process instead of a public procedure - using public procedures in XE is somewhat tricky.
In this example
you can see how easy it is to preserve report pagination after PPR. With a little jquery coding you can attach a function to the pagination request and this way "document" where the pagination goes. After a report refresh you may read those values and paginate back (more...)
I personally didn't like SQL Developer because of it's clumsy java interface and found TOAD much better. Now, the version 4.0 looks more professional, cleaner and nicer. The new look and feel has been improved a lot. You can now reorder editor tabs without any side effects. SQL Developer (more...)
If you are using APEX Listener version 2.0, you can download a sample application here
. In this application I am showing how to:
1. create an excel upload page
2. manage multiple excel sheets after upload
This new APEX Listener feature is great and I hope they will extend (more...)
Prior to configuring Session State Protection in your applications you need to be aware of one important thing. Setting it up and configuring the settings will change the settings for all the items in your application - even if the items were protected before that change using some other protection (more...)

It is funny but true.
Unser nächster Kurs wird im November, am 11.11 und 12.11 in Bensheim stattfinden. Das Thema ist ziemlich spannend - APEX 4.2 New Features und unsere Erfahrungen aus der Praxis mit der neuen Version
. Wir werden diesmal sehr viel über dem APEX Listener, Einsatz von jQuery und über (more...)
