3 days - 3 cities - 6 presentations (4 different ones)
My tour started on Monday afternoon when I left my house around 1.30PM to get on the bus to the train station. The 2PM train left exactly on time for the Amsterdam airport. I arrived at Schiphol around 3:30PM, perfectly on time to catch the 5PM flight to Copenhagen.
The flight to Copenhagen was very uneventful. From the airport I took the train (more...)
Back in 2008 I was invited by Scott Spendolini
to speak about my experiences with Oracle APEX at the German telecom shops
at the KScope conference in New Orleans.It was a truly great experience.
At that time the system I had built was one of the larger deployments of Oracle APEX known in the community serving 6.000 users in the 800 telecom shops in Germany with 400.000 hits per day on (more...)
If you're following some Oracle blogs or Twitter, you'll see many blog posts starting with "OTN Appreciation Day : " today. You can read the story behind this initiative on Tim Hall's blog. "The blog post content should be short, focusing more on why you like the feature, rather than technical content."
In my life Oracle played (and is still playing) an important role... and it all started because I love working with (more...)
For OTN Appreciation Day
, I was told that it wouldn't be appropriate to write about my favorite Oracle feature (APEX
, obviously). So I'll gladly promote my second-favorite Oracle Database feature...Oracle Text
I've used Oracle Text for many years - from when it was SQL*TextRetrieval to Oracle ConText Option to Oracle interMedia Text to finally Oracle Text. This was one of those products that used to be a for-cost option and was (more...)
Thanks Tim for coming up with that great idea.
My favorite feature is the Oracle APEX Metadata Repository.
As you are probably aware of, APEX applications aren’t compiled. They are stored as metadata in a relational data model. Of course we aren’t allowed to access the tables in the APEX schema directly (e.g. APEX_050000), but APEX provides a bunch of dictionary views to read everything you want to know.
You can find all views (more...)
That’s a looong title, right?
I got a questions like that in the past year on a regular basis: “do you know how to remove the Set Screen Reader Mode On link from an APEX application footer without breaking the universal theme subscription?”
And I always had to say “never tried, but there must be a way”. Today was finally the day when I wanted to get rid of the message from one of (more...)
It just isn't fair. If you install a Packaged Application - and you should because there is a lot to learn from those apps - in your APEX Workspace they all have a cool looking icon. And your own applications, just show up with two characters in a (random?) coloured box. Why can't I have a nice looking icon for my application?
For the third time in a row I'll be running for ODTUG's Board of Directors. But after ending as a runner up twice, I am sure I'm going to make it this time! But not without your help!
My campaign statement this year is:
I have been attending and presenting at Kscope conferences since 2007. This not only resulted in a vast amount of knowledge, but also - and even more important - a huge (more...)
I received the following question via email today:"Had a question from a client yesterday concerning the subject: I want to know which database session (APEX_PUBLIC_USER) is servicing which APEX session. Poking around in the V$ tables, I can see that in v$SQL, the module column will reveal the APEX Application and Page, but not the Session ID. Even if the session ID was in there, I don’t see an obvious way to join back (more...)
In 1.5 week I'll be travelling to and through the Nordics as one of the speakers during the OTN Nordic ACE Tour
. It will be quite a busy schedule!
and one about APEX (more...)
Wegen der großen Nachfrage veranstalten wir jetzt einen Zusatztermin für den APEX 5.0 Best Practice Kurs am 21.Nov - 23. Nov. 2016. Anmeldung zum Kurs
for a while now. It is an amazing plugin to create all kind of customized business solutions. But before I show you how I have used Raphaël I tell you how I came to the technology and what happened in the last few years. (more...)
When you have multiple Interactive Reports (IR) on your page and use a Region Display Selector to mimic tabs, you might notice some weird behaviour in the IR headings if you switch tabs. The headings are not positioned correctly and you get an extra empty row under the headings. It just looks weird and ugly. But if you resize your browser window, it all looks fine again (until you switch to another tab..)
The APEX Development Team recently mentioned that not only the Data Visualisations part of JET will be included in APEX 5.1, but the complete installation of JET. The whole package. That won't do the size of the downloadable install file any good, but more important is: what can we do with (more...)
In APEX you can define a web service that returns XML as below - all declarative, just a few steps through a wizard.
Then generate a report on top of that web service - again just a few clicks through a wizard. The generated query looks like this:
from apex_collections c,
XMLTable('/Response/S_getCustomerListTableArray/S_getCustomerListArrayItem' passing xmltype001
In my previous post
The installation of SQLcl
is easy... you just download the zip
, unpack and run the executable.
But to be fair, before I got SQLcl running (especially the script part) I encountered a number of issues, so hopefully this post helps you be able to run SQLcl with all features in minutes as it's meant to (more...)
In the last two years I've been using JSON in almost every project I was involved in.
For example with APEX Office Print
our plugin is sending JSON to the backend. This JSON you can actually see yourself in the Remote Debug screen in your AOP Dashboard
Another example is the wearables project (IoT) I showed at KScope 16
; the wearable is sending data to a smartphone or tablet, which in his turn is (more...)
