please, I need your opinion, when you design an application in APEX with Oracle database express Edition for small scale clients who can not afford Oracle database standard or Enterprise edition license.
Does that violate Oracle Licensing?
Oracle APEX comes as component of Oracle Database and hence whichever database edition (express or standard or enterprise) licensing applies.
For Oracle XE and Oracle APEX licensing following is extensive blog done by Dietmar Aust on the same: http://dietmaraust.com/repost-clarification-on-oracle-xe-licensing-really-free-for-any-usage
For detailed licensing queries you should contact My Oracle Support or raise your query to them through support request.
Hope this helps!
