All, Have any one implemented easy way of adding dynamic font size user control option for an Apex Application
23-Sep-2016 11:27:PM by: rk
@joelkallman Just tried Simple Charts and Simple Grid applications at apexea.oracle.com and they are very good to learn all possible features...Thank You..
23-Sep-2016 11:19:PM by: rk
Anyway, thanks for your confirmation

When I say Oracle Cloud, I mean that ABCS, Application Builder Cloud Service has already failed, if it can't be installed on site
23-Sep-2016 08:02:PM by: zubairq
Yeah, from what i have seen all companies who use Oracle usually have it on premise or with their infrastructure provider. The fact that Oracle Cloud can't be installed on infrastructure means that oracle Cloud can only be used if someone has their Oracle database in Oracle's cloud, which is still 10 years away, so Oracle Cloud is a non starter
23-Sep-2016 08:01:PM by: zubairq
The skill set you need is totally different though. For APEX it's mainly SQL and PLSQL. For ABCS and thus JET, it is 100% JavaScript - and not the easy and obvious stuff ...
23-Sep-2016 07:27:PM by: roelhartman
Oracle welcomes all customers on their cloud especially large ones :wink:. But I have to agree with Oracle that mobile apps on premise don't make much sense (security wise)
23-Sep-2016 07:21:PM by: roelhartman
which means it is probably dead before it is even released as large companies want on premise
23-Sep-2016 07:18:PM by: zubairq
It means that it is directed at smaller companies, not large ones then
23-Sep-2016 07:17:PM by: zubairq
@roelhartman Ok, thanks, so are you saying that 100% that Cloud Service will not be available to use for companies on their internal infrastructure?
23-Sep-2016 07:17:PM by: zubairq
@zubairq: once again, ABCS will only be available in the cloud - as the name says. The target is mobile apps, so that makes kinda sense. It is a pure front end tool, build in JET, generating JET. All based on RESTful webservices.
23-Sep-2016 07:15:PM by: roelhartman
(fixed my thinking too)
23-Sep-2016 06:41:PM by: klaas
nevermind, fixed it.
23-Sep-2016 06:27:PM by: klaas
Question: does Deep Linking=enabled and Page Access Protection = "Arguments must have checksum" make sense together? I would expect a URL to this page, without a checksum, to work. Case is: let's say a ticket system. customer gets an email that his ticket is updated, clicks on a link directly to this ticket. If my thinking is flawed, how so?
23-Sep-2016 05:56:PM by: klaas
interesting that it wont be on premise. has oracle confirmed that? it would make all the difference
23-Sep-2016 03:49:PM by: zubairq
but interesting that
23-Sep-2016 03:45:PM by: zubairq
ok, makes sense, but I will need to wait until Oracle officially says something about Apex support for 5.1. You have to remember that if I present something, I have to back it up with official information from Oracle, otherwise it is just seen as me making a guess
23-Sep-2016 03:44:PM by: zubairq
ABCS, Application Builder Cloud Service, is only available in the (Oracle) Cloud. So not on premise. That means it it might be a low code product, but definitely not a low cost product :wink:
23-Sep-2016 01:23:PM by: roelhartman
That slide means APEX 5 will be supported at least until 2020. The newer versions will be supported even longer. So don't say to your management that "APEX will be supported until 2020" as that might be interpreted totally wrong.
23-Sep-2016 01:21:PM by: roelhartman
I am hoping the list corresponds to the version since 5.1 is around the corner and is no present in the list. Perhaps 5.1 will be supported from 2020 to 2025....

Another good video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o-22UewN7w
23-Sep-2016 01:07:PM by: zubairq
anyway the 2020 could be an issue. I know my current company will be concerned if something is only supported til 2020
23-Sep-2016 01:05:PM by: zubairq
I think they putting the effoer into this cloud builder though as a strategic direction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giDFU2ZtA8s
23-Sep-2016 01:03:PM by: zubairq
ok, so looks like apex supported til 2020

I think @roelhartman is currently doing a series of posts about using JET in APEX
23-Sep-2016 12:32:PM by: trent
Will be interesting to hear from someone who works at Oracle too
23-Sep-2016 12:32:PM by: zubairq
APEX will use the JET charting libariries out of the box I believe
23-Sep-2016 12:31:PM by: trent
Ok, thanks
23-Sep-2016 12:31:PM by: zubairq
JET is a framework for building client side applications - with a series of components that can be used anywhere, and since APEX is serving web apps, its just a matter building components that you want in apex from the available libraries
23-Sep-2016 12:31:PM by: trent
I'm mostly asking as I have to give management reports on the strategic direction of not only Apex, but Oracle as well as how they will push cloud development in the future
23-Sep-2016 12:31:PM by: zubairq
Also here in Copenhagen I saw Cloud Builder in a demo last year, but the speaker didn't say what it was, only that they are developing new cloud based app tools
23-Sep-2016 12:30:PM by: zubairq
I see that it uses JET which I have heard Apex can use as well, or am I wrong?
23-Sep-2016 12:29:PM by: zubairq
Of course, I'm not a representative of Oracle, so maybe someone else will chime in
23-Sep-2016 12:28:PM by: trent
Anyway, I dont think apex is going anywhere :slightly_smiling_face: this question comes up every now and again on the forums about apex going away, and Joel usually squashes that rumour

How does "application builder" from Oracle affect the future of Apex?
23-Sep-2016 12:22:PM by: zubairq
Good morning all, We have had one of our APEX installations run against an Acunetix scan. The scan is bringing back some critical results about SQL injections but I am fairly sure they are false positives. I believe this code as well is being wrapped behind the scenes so would be very difficult to execute or see whats going on. The major issues seem to be in relation to the bind variables within the URL. I am making an educated guess that the results of the scan are showing as critical due to standard ORA- oracle errors that are being returned. For example : Error ERR-7620 Could not determine workspace for application (1). ORA-01403: no data found when we try to execute one of the results of the scan. An example of a result 1/8 is as follows: /apex/devboj/f or /apex/devboj/wwv_flow.js_messages Parameter p | p_flow_id | p_app_id Alert group SQL injection Severity High Description This script is possibly vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. SQL injection is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to alter back-end SQL statements by manipulating the user input. An SQL injection occurs when web applications accept user input that is directly placed into a SQL statement and doesn't properly filter out dangerous characters. This is one of the most common application layer attacks currently being used on the Internet. Despite the fact that it is relatively easy to protect against, there is a large number of web applications vulnerable. Recommendations Your script should filter metacharacters from user input. Check detailed information for more information about fixing this vulnerability. Alert variants URL encoded GET input p was set to 1#####%2527%2522 Error message found: ORA-01403: Does anyone know any solution to stop this flagging up or a valid reason I can give to my department why they should not be looked at further. Is there a way to change the ORA messages that occur to something more readable to stop the flag ? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Edit: This looks to have been solved with APEX 5.1 but would need to test.
