Today a very important Page of an important APEX Application has accidentially been deleted. We didn’t want to step back to yesterdays backup, because right before the deletion many changes took place and we didn’t want to code that again.
Oracle APEX includes the realy nice feature of exporting an Application “As of x minutes ago”.
But there is also a dialog where you can export a single page, without the whole application overhead:
But this dialog lists only currently existing Pages and doesn’t include our deleted Page.
Firebug to the rescue we manipulate the HTML-Code of the Page-Select-List and add our deleted Page 99 which then exports easily “As of 30 minutes ago”.
1. Use Firebugs “Inspect Element” on the Page-Select-List
2. Edit the HTML and insert a new <option>
3. pick the newly added entry from the select-list, enter 30 as number of minutes and press the export button
4. go to the import menu and import the Page-Export File.
Life can be sooo easy using the right tools :-)
