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. Continue reading

Quick note: I finally managed to get the APEX Developer Addon signed by Mozilla and therefor working again in Firefox 43 upwards.
Please re-download and install, version of the Addon in Firefox is now 220.127.116.11. No changes for Chrome.
Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for all those mails I got.
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.
One of many small enhancements in Oracle APEX 5.0 is a small utility that can be used to help debugging an APEX application from SQLPLUS or sqlcl.
If you haven’t heard: APEX 5.0 is out !
And I finally got some time on my hands to do my usual “diff” between the new and previous version to point out all API and View changes.
To me this is a very valuable exercise to absorb all new information and to get to know all new Features of a version. Because everything I find in View and API changes, must also be reflected in the APEX UI (Builder, Settings, …), right?
Well, lets say this is right most of the time. Sometimes I also stumble across hidden gems, which makes this even more valuable to me. Continue reading
Currently there are multiple positions open for APEX Developers locally in Vienna/Austria.
Hi everyone and happy “new” year!
This year’s resolution is to do even more APEX. Is this possible, you might ask?
Sure, for example on Feb 19 2015 at our next orclapex Vienna Meetup.
Hope to see you there. Patrick and Christian will provide us with the latest news of APEX 5 and tell us more about Early Adopter #3.
Don’t waste any more time: RSVP yes.
As preparation for my Presentation about Worst Practices in Oracle APEX I set up a survey using the Survey Builder Packaged Application.
Please help out and fill in the survey: https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=80076:Q::AAAW
There will be a follow up post with details on worst practices and survey results.
Thanks for your time,
