APEX 4.0 New Features Training in Bensheim/Frankfurt (04.10-05.10.2010)

Following up on the other successful APEX trainings in the past, Denes and me holding our next class in September (04.10-05.10.2010). The class will be held in Bensheim (Germany), close to Frankfurt.

Oracle APEX 4.0: New Features

The class will focus clearly on conveying the most effective ways to utilize the newest and hottest features of the upcoming release 4.0.

Which are the features you will benefit the most of? What works really well and where does APEX 4.0 still have its shortcomings?

These are the topics we will cover:
  • An overview of all the new features.
  • Websheets - how can you utilize the new wiki-like functionality?
  • Dynamic Actions - Declarative interface to implement dynamic client-side behavior declaratively without the need to know JavaScript (e.g. show, hide, enable, disable).
  • Extending APEX with Plug-Ins, custom item types and custom regions.
  • Improved tabular forms, including declarative support for validations and additional item types.
  • Team Development - Facilitates the management of the application development process including Features, To-Do, Bugs and Milestones.
  • Improved charting engine, based on AnyChart 5.1, including declarative Flash-based Maps and Gantt charts.
  • Enhanced Web services - Declarative RESTful Web services together with improvements to Web service integration and capabilities.
  • Expanded Interactive Reports - Integrated report, icon and detail views plus compound filters, group by, email notifications, and additional save options.
  • Modernized Application Builder - Usability improvements including integrated application search, advisor, dashboards, highlighting current actions, and improved Administration screens.
  • Oracle APEX Listener - A J2EE-based alternative to mod plsql providing improved performance, direct file upload, file system-based page caching, and improved PDF printing.
The training will not be theoretical but jam-packed with hands on sessions and lots of tips and tricks to get the best results.

You can find more information about the class here.

Surely one of the highlights of this training is the Q&A session which we will have the first evening from 19:00-21:00. Bring your current APEX application to the session and we will discuss with you possible strategies and/or help with coding problems in your application right there.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Bensheim!
