There are so many things to love about Oracle APEX, as those of us who are lucky to work with it every day will tell you. So, Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect occasion to celebrate our affection for this unique application development platform.

We asked our co-workers at Insum as well as our peers in the community what they love about Oracle APEX.

Here are some of their responses!

But before you read on, an ode to Oracle APEX…

I love that #orclapex made me look like a rock star to my kids on more than 1 occasion. An app to track your University fitness challenge with your peers? Here you go. An app to help you and your friends with your math drills? Voilà! 🔥💪

Number one for me (and the reason I liked it so much in the beginning): It is damn easy to create an application with basically no knowledge of any web technology, and little or no SQL knowledge.
On top of that, the second best thing – you can extend it a lot and apply as much custom code as you like – CSS, JavaScript, HTML, you name it.
Third best – no middle tier – directly from database to the web app.
Everything else is just a bonus to me, but yes – a great community, great development team within Oracle, rapid development of the product, implementing and supporting new technologies.
Also – FREE A fantastic reason to chose it. Not only the apex.oracle.com free workspace, but an Always Free OCI tier, including a compute, Autonomous DB (with APEX included) and a dedicated APEX service – also free with the standard limits. On-demand also possible with Oracle XE, Docker containers in place if needed and so on.

    I love Oracle Apex easy of integration with REST APIs. In 5 minutes and 3 lines of code you can have the response from a REST web service transformed into a table, to which you can apply SQL, just as you would on a database table. I am also a bit sad to see how this impressive feature is often overlooked, and doesn’t always make it to top 5.
