I got a couple of questions over the last weeks regarding the ApexLib Framework and Oracle APEX 4.0.
- Is ApexLib still under active development?
- Do we need ApexLib on APEX 4.0?
- What about my applications using ApexLib, can i upgrade to APEX 4.0?
In short: you don’t need to worry.
ApexLib continues to make Oracle APEX an even better product and runs perfectly smooth with Version 4.0 of APEX.
Check out the Feature Demonstration Application on apex.oracle.com or download ApexLib Framework and try it on your local database.
Is ApexLib still under active development?
Yes. ApexLib is an ongoing project which aims to improve APEX where it isn’t as perfect or as comfortable as you wish. I’m currently planning improvements especially for APEX 4.0, e.g. even better TabForm support.
Do we need ApexLib Framwork on APEX 4.0 ?
Oracle APEX 4.0 includes many improvements which ApexLib provides for a long time (thanks to Patrick Wolf, who now develops cool new features in APEX).
But there are still plenty things ApexLib can help you with, even when you are using APEX 4.0.
What about my applications using ApexLib, can i upgrade to APEX 4.0?
Absolutely, just make sure you are using the latest version of ApexLib Framework, then you are good to upgrade to APEX 4.0.
Do you include Feature XY in your next release?
If you need certain features for the upcoming release of ApexLib Framwork, just drop me a note. I’ll try to include whatever you need and whatever my limited time makes possible.
I’m soooo happy with ApexLib, it made my application even better!
Good to hear, makes me happy and proud. If you want you also can thank me in USD or EUR :-)
That’s all, hope you enjoy ApexLib Framework and Oracle APEX 4.0!
P.S.: Make sure to check out the ApexLib Tools, will be more there soon!
