Oracle Application Express (APEX) 4.0 – Preview Video

Just read that Carl Backstrom has made his video public, which is showing on of the “WOW” features of the upcoming Oracle APEX 4.0 release. The video was first shown at the “First Oracle APEX Training Days” by APEX Evangelists. Side note: Dimitri Gielis and John Scott blogged about there experience doing this training. Check out there blogs. Good job guys!

But back to the video, check out Carl’s posting APEX 4.0 Preview (aka Video Killed the Radio Star) to see him in “action”! :-)

I would suggest to get the higher definition version, so that you can see the real beauty of the new feature. BTW, you have to get the VCL player as Carl has written, because the video is coded with the Theora coded which Windows Media Player and QuickTime can’t decode.

And now just a few screen captures as teaser…

New context menu for report columns

On the fly filtering

On the fly grouping

On the fly row/cell highlighting

So users will have a lot of “on the fly” options to modify the report you have created for an Oracle APEX application.

  1. Yeah I’m just having some trouble reencoding that video it. Everytime I do I lose a ton of detail. I’ll keep trying though since when I do more they have to look better in google/youtube video and for download.

    My second vidcast will have much better quality (at least for the picture) than this one did.

  3. Um… 3.2 came out Q1 2009 apparently. Will 4.0 ever see the light of day? I am really worried as we’re about to embark on an entire redevelop of our Forms apps into ApEx, and your note on the limitations of ApEx form handling (http://www.inside-oracle-apex.com/plug-play-tabular-form-handling/) actually scared me as to how we could ever do it (as we use mostly tabular for for data entry…)

  4. There is a proposal (immediately apologize for my English):
    When we do, for example, grouping, it appears below the search string with the string parameter groupings. If several parameters, a number appears little plus by clicking on those options that you can hide … When you enter the next session, then this line remains as in the previous session. And when comes to a completely new user to a page, it has always, these lines are open. And if filtered initially very much, like I used to have 20-30 parameters there appeared .. the users get lost and can not find the table itself! If I do not understand explained, I can show all the pictures …

    looks like it was a temporary issue. Thanks for letting me know.
