The next step looks like this:
The Page Mode can now be set to Modal, so instead of a popup it will render as a modal.
Note that in the EA1 version there are some known issues with the Feedback Page, (more...)
In the Application Builder you start by hitting the Create button.
There are a couple of improvements here:
- You'll see APEX 5.0 includes a complete new set of icons which are flat and fresh and immediately give you an insight what the button is doing. This is throughout the entire release.
- The (more...)
It’s that time of year again: Conference Season! There’s a few conferences that fall in the 1st few months of the year that I try to present at each year, and this year is no different. Here’s where I’ll be presenting at over the next few months:
- RMOUG - Denver, CO - February 5th - 7th
At RMOUG this year, I’ll be co-presenting a new session called “Creating a Business UI in APEX” with Jorge (more...)
Overall this new version of Oracle Application Express tries to put even more power and speed in the development. The UI is made simpler and cleaner with a fresher look and feel.
Not every part of APEX got an overhaul in EA1, it remains to be seen if in EA2 (more...)
Suddenly a big thunder rolled through the APEX community -> Version 5.0 has arrived in an early adopter version, as published on Joel Kallmans Blog (as usual on a friday, late night over here in europe).
Over the past 10-15 month we saw numerous presentations of what we can expect in APEX 5, and many of us had our own ideas.
As soon as I got word through twitter I applied for a workspace (more...)
We are quite happy to announce the beginning of the Oracle Application Express 5.0 Early Adopter program, at https://apexea.oracle.com. This is our open-to-the-public beta program where we encourage our customers (new and old), and also those just interested in Oracle Application Express, to kick the tires of our forthcoming release. Click the big blue "Request a Workspace" button to get started.

Requesting a workspace is not working yet at the time of writing this post, but I expect it can be opened every moment now.
APEX 5.0 carries many new features, one of the biggest is the new Page Designer which should increase developer productivity even more. David Peake recorded some videos, here's the APEX 5.0 Page Designer Overview:

Sometimes saving the picture worked, sometimes it didn't. If it didn't work I hit the following error: "Post too large". It turned out that my Max Post Size in Configurations - server-config - Network Config - Network Listeners - http-listener-1 under HTTP was set too small.

Happy birthday, Oracle Application Express!
In January 2004, Oracle Database 10g was released. And bundled with the Oracle 10g Database distribution was an additional disc called the Companion CD, which included both Oracle HTTP Server, mod_plsql and this new tool called Oracle HTML DB 1.5. This was the date of the first officially distributed and supported software from Oracle which has grown into today's Oracle Application Express.
To recap the years:

"Learn something new about Oracle almost every day"
"Learn a new technology outside the comfortable realm of Oracle Database".
Resolutions I try to follow myself every year...
I love to try and integrate different technologies with Oracle APEX. Looking back at the last two years, just from the Oracle stack alone, in 2012 I played around integrating APEX with E-Business (more...)
In the first two parts of this blogpost series we covered the basics and the technique on how to provide nice/friendly/readable URLs for a public APEX Application.
