UDPATE: Free APEX Hosing

Well, you get what you pay for. It seems as if there is a single public workspace that you're account will be tied to when you create a free account with AppsHosting. Hardly secure! Any other user is free to wreak havoc on what you build, unless you meticulously lock each and every page. Unfortunately, that won't stop anyone from seeing (and altering) your database objects, as those are all shared among all users as well.

Guess I'll keep the account to use in a bind, but won't ever put anything in there that I don't want anyone else to see or that I may want to see again...

Can't you do the same thing on htmldb.oracle.com? Just for development...

Yes, you can, but if your application becomes "production ready", you will have to move it elsewhere. Sounds like Appshosting can take what you have and move it to production more seamlessly.

Also, keep in mind that the Oracle service makes no guarantees about its uptime, availability. They *COULD* wipe the entire server clean tomorrow and there's nothing anyone would be able to do about it...

Oracle wouldn't do a thing like that, surely! ;-)
