There are several articles out on the net which cover nicer URLs for Oracle APEX applications.
This posting is just an overview of some of them, because I just came across a new blog posting for that topic and it’s an often asked question when you are going to deploy your new APEX application.
Is the APEX 3.0 development already close to completion?
If you read some of the development responses in the APEX 3.0 Feedback application
[...] I have logged a bug but it won’t be fixed for 3.0 because we have already sent our translations out and even though this would not be a new string [...]
Some time ago I blogged about replacing the SVG APEX charting with a Flash charting solution which is more “sexy” than the SVG charts.
The drawback of the solution was that the package which you had to use was wrapped. But the good news is that Denes Kubicek has just released an
Unwrapped version of the package.
So get it and try it out. Details and questions can be asked in the related OTN forum thread.
Denes, keep up the good work! We need more out-of-the-box APEX open source solutions!
On Wednesday I released the first version of the APEX Builder Plugin, on Thursday I added a small enhancement, but on Friday I had an idea how to really increase the productivity of the Oracle APEX IDE.
People who know me, know that I’m restless and just think about that as long as I haven’t implemented it. So I spend some hours of my weekend to enhance my APEX Builder Plugin.
So what excited me that much that I spend another weekend doing some programming?
Just updated the APEX Builder Plugin for Greasemonkey to version 1.1
Are you also setting “Export Comments” to YES each time when you export your Oracle APEX application, because you don’t want to loose your developer comments in the case you have to restore from a previous export. How often have you forgotten and have been lucky that you didn’t have to restore?
Last week I blogged about a resizeable textarea which can be integrated into an APEX application. I thought it would be cool to have this resizeable textareas in the APEX Builder, too.
How could that be done?
Did some bug fixing for the ApexLib Framework.
This release also solves the problem of navigable Date Picker/Lov icons when using Firefox. The framework now removes the “a href” of the icon from the DOM tree and assign the action of the link as onclick event to the icon. So no navigation problem with any browser anymore.
Does anybody use the framework with a pre-APEX 2.2 version and wants to have the non-navigable Date Picker/Lov icon feature? Because there is a pending bug for that which I only will implement if there is a demand for it.
The following other bugs have been fixed in this new release:
That’s the last posting about new features in the 1.02 release of the ApexLib Framework.
Ever wanted to set a case restriction (uppercase/lowercase/capitalize) for a field like you can do it in Oracle*Forms with the “Case Restriction” property?
Here you go!
In the last release of the ApexLib Framework I have also added a sometimes useful API to hide the “Select All” checkbox of the row selector of an Tabular Form. This can be useful to prevent the user from selecting all records for delete.
