2007 APEX Conference Details Announced

We've posted the session titles & abstracts for the 2007 APEX Conference to the ODTUG Kaleidoscope site.

There will be two tracks - one for beginners and one for experienced users. The Beginners Track will be more hands-on sessions and will assume no or little knowledge of APEX, whereas the Experienced Track will be more lecture and assume working knowledge of APEX.

Also, the Early Bird registration deadline has been extended until March 20th.

Hope to see you in Daytona this June!

I'm not sure, but I suspect 2.2. However, 3.0 may ship with 11g.

Do you see yourself re-running this course in another timezone say in San Francisco or Europe? Or more ambitiously in an Asia/Pacific location?

Colin,

No decision has been made on whether we plan on re-running this course anywhere.

Thanks,

Hello Scott.

I am a beginner in Apex. I am using apex 2.1 included in Oracle Database XE 10g. I was wondering if there is a way to udpate apex 2.1 to apex 3.0.
Besides that what will be the future apex releases for Oracle Express Edition Users or apex 2.1 will be the last.
Thanks in advanced for your answer.

Roger,

These types of off-topic comments are best posted on the APEX Forum on OTN.

There are several discussions there about the compatibility of the APEX release found in XE vs. Release 2.2/3.0.

Thanks,

Thanks, ODC (Oracle Developer Community)!

I owe a lot of thanks to the ODC - which stands for Oracle Developer Community.  What is ODC?  You may remember it as OTN, or the Oracle Technology Network.  Same people, different name.  Why they changed it I can't say.  People just liked it better that way... (love that song)

In any case, what am I thankful for?  A lot.  To start, the tools that I use day in and day out: SQL Developer, ORDS, Oracle Data Modeler, SQLcl and - of course - APEX.  Without these tools, I'm likely on a completely different career path, perhaps even one that aligns more closely with my degree in television management.

While the tools are great, it's really the people that make up the community that make ODC stand out. From the folks who run ODC and the Oracle ACE program to the developers and product managers who are behind the awesome tools, the ODC community is one of, if not the greatest asset of being involved with Oracle's products.

If you have yet to get more involved with this communi…

Spaced Out

A while back, I wrote about how to give the Universal Theme a face lift.  If you follow the steps in that post, the base font for an APEX application with the Universal Theme can easily be changed.

While that's all well and good, sometimes you only want to change the font for a report, not the entire page.  One of the applications that I'm building contains a number of IRs based mostly on log data.  Thus, having that data in a monospaced font would make it a whole lot easier to read.

You can search Google Fonts for monospaced fonts by selecting only that option on the right-side menubar.  You can also opt for the standard yet kinda boring Courier and achieve the same thing.

To implement this in your application, follow the steps in my other post, but stop shy of the final step.  Instead of pasting in the text that I specify, paste in the following to the Custom CSS field in Theme Roller, using the name of the font you selected for the font-family:

.a-IRR-table tr td { font-fam…

Logging APEX Report Downloads

A customer recently asked how APEX could track who clicked “download” from an Interactive Grid.  After some quick searching of the logs, I realized that APEX simply does not record this type of activity, aside from a simple page view type of “AJAX” entry.  This was not specific enough, and of course, led to the next question - can we prevent users from downloading data from a grid entirely?

I knew that any Javascript-based solution would fall short of their security requirements, since it is trivial to reconstruct the URL pattern required to initiate a download, even if the Javascript had removed the option from the menu.  Thus, I had to consider a PL/SQL-based approach - one that could not be bypassed by a malicious end user.

To solve this problem, I turned to APEX’s Initialization PL/SQL Code parameter.  Any PL/SQL code entered in this region will be executed before any other APEX-related process.  Thus, it is literally the first place that a developer can interact with an APEX page…
