APEX Everywhere, data anywhere : New APEX 18c REST Enabled SQL Support

615, Level 6

Erik Espinoza, Solutions Architect 

Moving from Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 to 12.2 version can be tricky. We are now dealing with Weblogic, multiple Filesystems, Edition Based objects and so on. ADOP is the new tool for online patching in 12.2. Even though is a whole new concept, it shouldn’t be difficult to catch up and successfully patch EBS environments. This presentation provides information about the ADOP tool, best practices, issues faced and troubleshooting.

Stay Out of APEX Debt!

612, Level 6

Session: 8790

Scott Spendolini, VP APEX+ Practice & Oracle ACE Director

 

Technical debt is a term often used to describe projects that continue to cost an organization money each year. Often poorly designed or build by novices, these applications are not only difficult to maintain, but also make an organization less efficient and even vulnerable to security flaws.

With APEX, there’s no excuse to wind up in this situation. Out of the box, APEX offers plenty of functionality to solve most business problems. This session will review the vast and rich set of APEX components as well as offer advice as to what not to do when building APEX applications to ensure that you stay debt free.

The Digital Farm: Streaming Sensor Data via IOT to the Oracle EPM Cloud for Predictive Modeling

620, Level 6

Jerry Ward, COO & Head of Applications

 

You have a database and you want to talk to it? In this session we’ll show you how to create a conversational chatbot on any data, database, or webservice. We explore the intents, utternces, and database access needed by the machine learning algorithms within chatbots. We will demonstrate the Oracle Digital Assistant chatbot implementation, comparing and contrasting it with Amazon Lex. We will also demonstrate the various channels that conversations can take place: from group chat like slack, to text messaging over SMS, and voice conversations like Alexa.

Oracle Developer Community Lunch and Learn: APEX Panel

Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP): In Heavy Traffic, Why Drive Stick?

616, Level 6

Jim Czuprynski, Senior Enterprise Database Architect & Oracle ACE Director 

The frenetic pace of application development in modern IT organizations means it’s not unusual to demand an application be built with minimal requirement gathering – literally, from a napkin-based sketch – to a working first draft of the app within extremely short time frames – even a weekend! – with production deployment to follow just a few days later.

This session demonstrates a real-life application development scenario – the creation of a mobile application that gives election canvassers a tool to identify, classify, and inform voters in a huge suburban Chicago voting district – using the latest Oracle application development UI, data modeling tools, and database technology. Along the way, we’ll show how Oracle APEX makes short work of building a working application while the Oracle DBA leverages her newest tools – SQL Developer and Data Modeler – to build a secure, reliable, scalable application for her development team.

Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW): These Are the Droids You’re Looking For

617, Level 6

Jim Czuprynski, Senior Enterprise Database Architect & Oracle ACE Director 

 

It’s sometimes difficult to quickly identify the root cause of a performance issue in the database. Automatic workload Repository (AWR) contains most of the information needed to identify these issues, but it could be overwhelming due the amount of data and statistics. Then, there’s a need of a method to quickly identify if the database system is CPU or I/O bound along with the top SQL statements in that period of time.

This quick tip session will explain how to identify the time consumed and the time waited by the database. It also drills down to particular SQL statements responsible of this time consumed.

6/26 10:15 Am

APEX Security Checklist

6C, Level 6

Session: 8793

Scott Spendolini, VP APEX+ Practice, Oracle ACE Director

 

Security is more important than ever before—particularly for the application developer. APEX is no exception to this rule, as there are plenty of things that can be either misconfigured or set incorrectly, resulting in a less secure application. 

This session will go through a checklist of what you, as an APEX developer, need to complete before promoting any APEX application to production.
