APEX offers a lot of great features right out of the box, but what if you get a requirement which goes beyond the standard functionality provided by APEX? In this session we’ll explore a couple of these use cases and dive into some advanced techniques that you can use. The topics that we’ll cover include:
– Extending APEX with Plugins
– Using the APEX Dictionary
– Dynamic Actions and Javascript
– Scripting APEX Deployment

15:00 – 17:00 – Prezentare solutii FOEX – speaker Peter Raganitsch

The FOEX Plugin Framework is built on top of Oracle APEX leveraging the APEX Plugin Interface. We introduce new features and design patterns, allowing you to build complex single-page applications (SPA) declaratively. Our suite of plugins are primarily built using the Sencha Ext JS JavaScript library which gives you a feature-rich set of components (150+) and a comprehensive API on both the client and the server-side to build enterprise web applications.
This technical session will focus on highlighting the ways in which the FOEX Plugin Framework enhances the functionality of Oracle APEX and we’ll talk about some of the more common use cases: migrating from Oracle Forms, extending the functionality of EBS, desktop applications etc.
