APEX EA 4.1 is out. Evaluation workspaces can be requested at tryapexnow.com.

Some of the notable improvements that can be seen right away are the APEX Builder Dashboards, which  in this version show only the most important information. However, there are other improvements as well that can be seen once you login to APEX.

A Dashboard styled Oracle Forms bean

Here is another dashboard styled bean that can be used in BI screens. While it can be used for this specific purpose, it can be used in other areas as well.

The screenshot above shows the bean with the value that is set from the Forms canvas. This can also be fetched from a table and triggered by the Timer bean for example.

The current value displayed by the bean can be retrieved using the Forms custom item built-in.

A number of properties have been included with this bean in order to allow specific customization to be carried out by developers. Future versions will include other properties that will enhance the graphic aesthetics.
