APEX on Autonomous Database – Adrian Căpitanu, Andreea Dobre – Oracle Romania
This presentation will cover a high level understanding of Autonomous Database, from provisioning till proper manipulation of the instance using REST APIs. The 5Ws(What, Who, When, Where, Why) will help you see that the database infrastructure administration is being mostly automated and autonomous, taking care of all the repetitive stuff for you. Real use cases are prepared to show how the REST APIs are used for operations like backup, scale up/down and so on. To be on the same track, we have also APEX and ORDS included in Autonomous Database since mid-June. With a user-friendly interface, APEX can be accessed directly from the Autonomous Database instance and provisioning a new workspace is a matter of 2 minutes by following a simple wizard. Next, we will give an overview around Web Source Modules, one of the APEX main features, that allows us data manipulation over a REST Service. There will be a step by step presentation showing how to create them, manipulate data and integrate it within different types of reports. Tips, tricks and also some information on the limitations of this approach will wrap the session up.
