There were very good news yesterday at the APEX presentation made by Oracle and the team behind sie-solutions (website). The most interesting features that will be available in the upcoming 4.0 release were discussed in the morning sessions.
In the afternoon, there were 6 speed training sessions related to the following features:
- Graphic look for an APEX application
- Preparing an APEX application for smartphones
- JQuery in APEX
- Dynamic actions
- How to break down a database using poor programming habits within APEX
As far as plugins are concerned, it is the way to go if APEX is to grow. However, I raised an issue dealing with the fact that most companies won’t use a plugin unless it is certified free from trojan, virues etc. The reason is that APEX is deployed in the database and as such a well (bad usage) crafted plugin would open the data in the DB to external mining. In this case, I think a plugin store similar to Apple store or Google market should be the way to go. Who is going or willing to manage it ?
Anyway, excellent presentations by the team behind sie solutions.
