Welcome to the unOfficial Apex (Oracle Application Express) Wiki
Oracle Application Express (Apex) is the new name for HTMLDB.
Note that all the examples have been changed to use 'Apex' rather than 'Htmldb', as such some of them may not work with your existing setup, in which case substituting htmldb should work
This website is a resource of ideas and thoughts on how to enhance, integrate with external systems, and administer Oracle's Apex product.
Our intention is to complement Oracle's existing Apex website, covering different aspects of Apex.
