I was recently helping a customer whom I had met at the ilOUG
Tech Days 2013. This customer had some questions about line charts and how to easily create multi-series charts without having to write a query per series. This customer was kind enough to create a test (more...)
If you haven't signed up for an Oracle Database Service on the Oracle Cloud

We're just in the second half of the 2013 and now we're already talking about "The best conference of 2014"?
Yep! And this conference will be held on Jun 22-26 in Seattle. So I am talking about ODTUG Kscope 14
. What else could it be .... And the best conference (more...)
Last months I’ve noticed that my blog was a bit slow. The first bytes that I received in the first network requests took around 3-4 seconds and loading the front page in some hours of the day was a pain. I believe that an optimal website should load in less (more...)
I found this picture on this web page: http://xkcd.com/773/
It is funny but true.
While KScope seems only a few weeks ago, ODTUG already announced a new great APEX event!
APEXPosed 2013 will be held on September 10 and 11 in Montreal. The agenda looks great, with a nice mix from local and international speakers. The APEX Development Team will be represented by both (more...)
The default Mobile Theme (50) in APEX renders just fine in Safari. It uses the full height of my iPhone 5, but when I added the app to my Home screen and ran it from there, it didn't render in fullscreen mode.
Turns out that the iPhone 5 doesn't like (more...)
I really like the Flot Pie Chart plugin that came with the APEX sample applications (see this blog post
in which apps this plugin is used).
But when I wanted to make changes to it, I couldn't... the PL/SQL Code was read-only.
To make the source read/write again you need (more...)

I wrote in my previous post
that you cannot patch the Application Express 4.2 version in a Oracle Database 12c container database to 4.2.2.00.11, however as of a little while ago, you can now remove Application Express 4.2 from your container database and install (more...)
Now that Oracle Database 12c
is available I upgraded my VM to try it out. The installation went very smooth and I was up-and-running in no time!
My virtual machine had Oracle 11gR2 installed with the latest patch of APEX 4.2.
Here are the steps I followed:
- downloaded (more...)
As you probably know by now, Oracle Database 12c
was made generally available on Tuesday, June 25th. We will be publishing a detailed page about Application Express in 12c on our OTN page
but I wanted to make a couple of points about Application Express in the new multitenant architecture. (more...)
It's finally here, for Linux & Solaris at least: Oracle 12c Database
Friday night i finally arrived after a long flight from Vienna to Washington to New Orleans, whereas the flights were pretty good, it is just that endless series of waiting lines that is tiresome.
Anyway, i’m here and – as usual – still working on my slides and demos with (more...)
Last week I presented at the OUG Scotland conference. To my surprise, I received the latest, 50th edition (!), of Oracle Scene - the publication of the UK OUG during registration. And, less to my surprise, there was an article in there written by yours truly: "Building Mobile (more...)

After the APEX Developer Addon broke in Chrome 27, I had to change the underlying architecture and do a rewrite of the Addon basis.
Some nice guys helped me Beta-Test that over the last week. Now it should be good to go.
Now here is the tricky part: if (more...)
Today the OTN Forums
