    Why use oracle apex listener

    raoul
      Hi all,

      Up till now I have been working with Oracle 10gXE and Apex 3 and 4. I just install both as is.
      So I think I make use of the mod-plsql connection method.

      What are the advantages of using apex listener?
      Where can I read about an implementation and optimum use of apex listener?

      Tnx in advance.

          Hi Raoul,

          at first, note that "mod_plsql" and APEX Listener are two different things. The first one uses a HTTP Server (usually Oracle HTTP Server (OHS), based on Apache HTTPD), the second one either an existing JEE Container or can be run in "Standalone Mode" using the embedded Grizzly.
          What are the advantages of using apex listener?
          There have been a few posts on that topic in the past:
          {thread:id=1100122}
          {thread:id=1555908}
          {thread:id=1594158}
          Where can I read about an implementation and optimum use of apex listener?
          The first place to look would be the [url http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex-listener/documentation/index.html]Documentation for APEX Listener. There also is a general [url http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex-listener/overview/index.html]Overview for possible APEX Listener implementation scenarios.

          If there's anything you don't find in either the posts or the documentation, don't hesitate to ask.
