Nicer URL for an Oracle APEX application

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.

There are two methods I know of to get nicer URLs.

  1. Use the Apache mod_rewrite module. The following links are a few articles covering that
  2. Use HTML Frames. The following code would be an example for that
    <html>
    <head>
      <title>Some Title</title>
    </head>
    <frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
      <frame src="http://your_host/pls/otn/f?p=xxxxx" frameborder="0" />
      <frame frameborder="0" noresize />
    </frameset>
    </html>

  1. Hello,

    But how can I configure that with SSO enabled?

    Because I got it working without it but with it it doesn’t redirect back after authentication on the SSO

    Thanks

  2. Hi

    This is really nice, but if you install xe you dont get an apache install you are using OHS. So when i search my computer for an httpd.conf file there is none? How can i do this using xe?

  3. Hi,

    We’re alos having trouble with using a nicer URL, if I decide to use the frames solution where is the code placed. Is it within my APEX app or on someother page?

    Many thanks in advance, I’m really stuck with this one.
