Beginning Oracle® Application Express
Even if you have limited programming experience, this hands-on guide will get you up and running quickly with Oracle Application Express (APEX). It covers the concepts and practical steps involved in building a web application from the ground up using Oracle APEX. You'll discover how to progress through the complete development process with the help of detailed instructions on creating, customizing, and extending an Oracle database application.
Highly respected Oracle expert Rick Greenwald begins by giving you the necessary tools to build a useable order entry system. He then explains how to enhance the system with reports, charts, themes, and templates. You'll also find out how to use packaged applications and work with multiple applications and you'll learn how to migrate and integrate data with the Oracle environment.
By the end of this book, you'll have a strong understanding of Oracle APEX and the world of Oracle technology, which will enable you to build your own applications and create further refinements that meet your reporting needs.
