If you're using dynamic SQL to source your menus and you're utilising the apex_application_pages dictionary view to build you list of menu options - I suggest you consider using Materialized Views
We have a reporting application that does just this; and the query also links to an authorisation table that decides what types of users see which reports.
You can create a snapshot (materialized view) using something as simple as
create materialized view apx_application_pages
Recently a colleague suggested I take a fresh look at the mobile emulation button in Chrome's developer tools.

There's a little over a week left to this year's major Oracle user group event in Perth, so attention all locals (or even east coasters) - if you're interested in picking up new skills & ideas - you haven't got much time left to register
This year it's called a "Professional Learning Event" instead of a conference and the program reflects it - plenty of hands on workshops mixed in with normal sessions. Considering it's (more...)
I'll be presenting an online webinar for ODTUG not long after the Perth conference.
It will be the same session I did for AUSOUG back in July, which is lucky since it's 6am for us Perth locals. It's a close look at the Oracle APEX 5 Page Designer
, and what it means to you as an APEX developer.

Do you write PL/SQL? Me too!
Trouble is, sometimes it's hard to decide how to structure your packages - particularly in an APEX project. Over at the PL/SQL Challenge
website run by Steven Feuerstein and friends there is a page dedicated to roundtable discussions.
I submitted my question not so long ago and hope to get some interesting responses. Why don't you give the site a visit and contribute? The discussions usually last for about (more...)
I was fairly excited at the prospect of seeing tonight's lunar eclipse but I neglected to take into account not being able to see the eastern horizon from my house.
I missed most of the total but enjoyed the crescent of the partial eclipse re-emerging. It's amazing how distinct the shadow leading to the penumbra
My friend said there will be some good shots in tomorrow's paper. I laughed and said here in the 21st (more...)
