    Oracle Application Express Listener benefits

    Apex4.0+HTML_DB1.6
      Hi everyone,

      We're trying to install APEX 4.1.

      Oracle Application Express Listener is it good for debugging ?

      Can I have more details about the listener ?

      Is it very helpful, is it a must ?

      Thanks. Bye.

          Hi,

          Go for it! ;)

          What do you want to debug? You can certainly do all common APEX debugging with it.
          Can I have more details about the listener ?
          Sure. Have you scanned the [url http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex-listener/overview/index.html]Product Overview yet? And unlike other products, the [url http://download.oracle.com/otn/java/appexpress/1.1/docs/AELIG/E21058_01.pdf]Installation and Development Guide is pretty compact, so you could take a look there as well. Especially the Preface and the chapter about Resource Templates should catch your eyes...
          Is it very helpful, is it a must ?
          It is helpful if need a fast solution to access APEX and you either don't use another web server (e.g. OHS or EPG via XDB HTTP Server) yet, or you have some JEE Container and want to consolidate your architecture (i.e., shutdown OHS or EPG), or you just want it for curiosity. It's not a must, you can still use the "old" web server options to host your APEX if you don't need any of the new features offered by the APEX Listener.
