Developing Web Applications

Oracle Application Express Release 4.1 further streamlines the development of database-centric Web applications. In this course, participants learn to rapidly develop a Web application and then deploy using Oracle Application Express. Participants learn about the creation and management of database objects and about the two types of applications, database and websheet applications, along with the Various types of page wizards.

The course explains Dynamic actions, plug-ins, shared components, and creation of various components of an application using the various wizards available.
