Yesterday I put a question on twitter, to find out what others prefer: table names using singular or plural form. I expected one or two replies, not an avalanche :-)

Just a quick note: I’ll be holding a 1-day APEX training class on April 21st in Vienna, Austria.

In this training I’ll teach you how to debug your APEX applications, how to find problems and bugs and how to speed up your application.

In the last post I showed how you can upload a custom theme to the instance repository so that all your developers can choose that theme within the create application wizard. And more importantly, subscribe that theme from the theme repository.

Now the next question is how to update that public theme so that all applications can inherit the changes.

The Universal Theme introduced with APEX 5 is immensly good looking and comes with a powerful Theme Roller to customize it.

With that new theme most, if not all, older themes are obsolete.

That leaves us just with a few corporate designs which can’t (or don’t want to) be replaced by the UT.

Now ideally you want your developers to use that custom theme in all applications and also subscribe to that.

Are you in Vienna/Austria on February 25th 2016 and interested in APEX?

Then you have to come and join us at the “APEX in the Cloud Day” – reserve your seat right away!

Last year was very eventful at FOEX, which kept me occupied and kept me from blogging. Thankfully I managed to attend a few conferences and stay in touch with the community through Twitter and Slack on apex.world.

FOEX is growing a lot and needed a new website design, so we had a brainstorming meeting and decided to again build it in APEX.

Last week we finally decided everything for the website was ready (as much as possible) and we released it. Please go to www.tryfoexnow.com and tell me if you like it.

In this post I want to give some background info how we built it and why we decided to do it this way.

Suddenly a big thunder rolled through the APEX community -> Version 5.0 has arrived in an early adopter version, as published on Joel Kallmans Blog (as usual on a friday, late night over here in europe).

Today (Tuesday March 27th 2012) started the first ODTUG APEX Plugin Competition. This is a chance for everybody to submit their self created Plugins to get reviewed, judged and maybe win one of the many Prizes available.

Plugins will be judged upon skill level of its creator. That means beginners and experts will not be in the same category, to make it fair to everyone.

Nowadays everything should be interactive and Web2.0 and AJAX, and again the Oracle Application Express Development Team has prepared something for us, that makes it easy to give our APEX Applications that interactive touch.

Fruit is healthy and my MacBook Pro is great !

Recently i switched from my old WinXP Notebook to a MacBook Pro and finally managed to set it up for all my working projects and my needs.

When working on ApexLib i often need different Versions of APEX to check the new features, which means multiple databases with each a different APEX Version on it.
