APEX 5.0 has been released this spring. People who have already spent some time on this new version know this version is packed with new features aimed to make APEX developers even more productive, like the Page Designer.
Another striking new subset of features is aimed at creating better looking user interfaces for your APEX applications in an easy and maintainable way.
The definition of user interface components in APEX 5.0 is (more...)
This is a quick and dirty solution
but it works. It shows hot to update a select list of values on demand without a lot of coding.
shows a couple of interesting techniques:
- 1. How to create and use an AJAX Callback process instead of an Application Process on Demand,
- 2. how to create a dynamic page item,
- 3. how to modify the item display settings and reference Font Awsome icon set and finaly,
This question is based on a recent forum posting where this question was asked.
One of many small enhancements in Oracle APEX 5.0 is a small utility that can be used to help debugging an APEX application from SQLPLUS or sqlcl.
When you download and unzip APEX 5 you’ll find a utilities directory which includes a debug directory:
The debug directory contains 4 SQL scripts:
Now lets take a look at what those scripts are doing:

Am 26.06.2015 17.00 treffen wir uns in Frankfurt a. M. bei einem weiteren APEX Meetup. Danke an Sabine Heimsath
und Moritz Klein
für die Organisation. Ich zeige dort, wie man lokal eine XE Datenbank zusammen mit ORDS und Glassfish konfigurieren kann. Danach kann sehr leicht jede beliebige Version von APEX nachinstalliert werden. Der Vorteil ist, ich kann alle Features einsetzen (RESTful Services, XLS Upload) und der Austausch vo Images bzw. Konfiguration für (more...)

I have just finished my presentation on the smaller new features of Oracle Application Express 5.0 here at the APEX Connect conference in Düsseldorf ... it was a blast :).
You can download the slides and the sample application here:
SAVE THE DATE: Am Dienstag dem 09.06. zwischen 11:00 - 11:45 halte ich meinen Vortrag.
Wie so oft habe ich auch für diesen Vortrag eine individuell zusammengestellte APEX Anwendung entwickelt, anhand dessen ich die Präsentation halten werden.

Der Vortrag eignet sich für Einsteiger wie Fortgeschrittene. Ich werde anhand unterschiedlichster Plug-Ins auf die Vorteile und Gefahren aufmerksam machen.
Also schaut rein und genießt die Show! :)
Ps.: Für Alle die (more...)
blog posting I was showing how to get the Firefox Browser to work with tabs in APEX 5.0. It looks like APEX 5.0 was "optimized" to work in Google Chrome and the other browsers like IE and Firefox were not fully considered. I was able to make it working using the settings I described in the first post. However, the old style popup windows would also open in a new tab. (more...)
About a month ago, I left my position at Accenture Enkitec Group. I had a couple of ideas as to what I wanted to do next, but nothing was 100% solid. After considering a couple of different options, I'm happy to announce that together with Doug Gault & Tim St. Hilaire, we're re-launching Sumner Technologies.
Much like last time, the focus will be on Oracle APEX; but we’re going to refine that focus a little (more...)
This may sound like a joke but I think there must be something wrong here. This page APEX-Plugin.com
is supposed to provide all the plugins out there. The only thing is that you need to log in before you download and that's O.K. However, I forgot my password and wanted to change it. The process is quite simple:
- I click on forgot my password link.
- Enter my email address.
- After that I receive (more...)
When you migrate to APEX 5.0 and the Universal Theme you might see that some plugins are not behaving correctly anymore. In this post I'll discuss the Enkitec Modal LOV
When I ran the plugin in my APEX 5.0 app with the Universal Theme it looked like this:
There's too much space in the search bar and the close button is not showing up with an icon.
Here're the steps I did (more...)
At the upcoming ODTUG Kscope15
conference, on Monday night, June 22, there will be the Monday Community Events
. The Community Event for the Oracle Application Express track at Kscope15 is the ever-popular Open Mic Night. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite events at the Kscope conference.
An Oracle employee sent me an email today, inquiring about the Open Mic Night. This employee, who is a user of Oracle Application Express at Oracle, (more...)
If you haven’t heard: APEX 5.0 is out !
And I finally got some time on my hands to do my usual “diff” between the new and previous version to point out all API and View changes.
To me this is a very valuable exercise to absorb all new information and to get to know all new Features of a version. Because everything I find in View and API changes, must also be reflected in (more...)
This old example
shows how to add rows to the top of the tabular form. Unfortunately this doesn't work with the new Universal Theme. In order to make it working some small changes are required. See this example
on how to do it using the new Universal Theme.
On Monday Bob Rhubart did a video call with me in his series of 2MTT
(2 Minute Tech Tip) on YouTube. You find my 2MMT here
I talked about using JSON and APEX and gave two examples were we use it.
In previous blog posts I gave more details on those techniques. Here's a quick overview:
comes with a new calendar region, which is way nicer than the previous calendar in APEX. It has more features, looks better and is also responsive. Behind the scenes you'll see the calendar region is based on Full Calendar
In Belgium we use Monday as first day of the week, whereas in the US they seem to use Sunday as start of the week in the calendar overview. I've been integrating Full (more...)
After installing Oracle APEX 5.0, do you get the alert “There are issues with the configuration of the Static Files in your environment. Please consult the “Configuring Static File Support” section in the Application Express Installation Guide.” when you try … Continue reading
This week Dimitri Gielis
and I ran a training day about all the new APEX 5.0 UI features. We had a full room with 20 enthusiastic attendees from 4 different countries. We covered some general APEX 5 UI features, the Universal Theme, Responsive Grid layouts, Template Options, Theme Roller, Theme Styles and bringing it all together using some advanced features. See the website
for more details.
Vom 01.06. bis zum 02.06. wird es in der nähe von Frankfurt den wohl ersten APEX 5 New Feature Kurs in Deutschland geben.
Wer Interesse an den APEX 5 Neuerungen hat und schon bald eine Migration plant, der sollte sich jetzt noch schnell anmelden.
Ps.: Ich selbst werde auch eine Session zu APEX 5 Migrationen halten.
