  • I read this one before and now but could not still find the way how to get the tables' data unloaded and exported with the application itself, if you know how to do that could you please mention it here.

    I use the following method.

    Step 1—_
    You need DDL for database objects. You can follow any of the following 2 methods:-
    Method 1
    • In APEX Go to Home .
    • Click on Utilities
    • Click on Generate DDL
    • Click on Create Script button
    • Select the Schema and Click on next
    • For output select Save as Script File and the objects types which you want to include in the script and click on next
    • Check the individual object name which you want include in the script and click on Generate DDL.
    • Download the Script File you generated to you Hard Drive.

    Method 2
    • Using SQL Developer Export the Schema and save the file you hard drive. (I use this method as it is easy and i can copy the data as well)
    Step 2 –_
    • Go to the application which you want to export
    • Click on Supporting Objects.
    • Click on Installation Script.
    • Click on Create From File.
    • Enter name of Installation script and click Next
    • Browse the file which you downloaded in Step 1 and Click on Create Script
    • Now Click on Export/Import Link on the Application Home Page
    • Click on Export
    • In the Export Preference Select Export Support Object Definition and Click on Export

    This exported file will install both the application as well as database object*

  • Hi,

    Thanks for that, but I need the Data inside the tables to be exported, I think they called seed data, I'm not after the ddl.
