Check the library of built applications offered by the apex developers. You should be able to build what you need from one of them as a starting point...
Thanks for the pointer.
I was really hoping to find a blog/wiki application already built rather than have to do it myself. Lazy, I know ;)
I understand, but isn't that 3/4 of the fun, coding it to EXACTLY what you need?
I'm also on the lookout for a blog app. Can be rough and ready as I'm mainly interested in using it to generate an RSS feed for a proof of concept. If - as Tony says - I'm in for all the fun of DIY, can anyone at least give a boost with a blog data model/design pattern?
I wonder how hard it would be to take the source code for WordPress and "Oracle-ize" it?
Well, whoever winds up doing something, how about co-ordinating with Carl (since he should almost be done with Collaborate now).
See: Open APEX Wiki needs a regular expression mastermind for a related thread.
if you are just looking for an example how to generate an RSS feed with APEX, have a look at the "Ask the Expert" application. I think it has such a feature. http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/application_express/packaged_apps/packaged_apps.html#ASK
On http://asktom.oracle.com/sdillon/rss.html you will find some RSS examples how they did it on asktom.oracle.com
Check out my APEX-blog: http://inside-apex.blogspot.com
Check out the ApexLib Framework: http://apexlib.sourceforge.net
I'm looking for an app to provide data so I can utilise the asktom example...that part of the concept is already proved!
Here is an example of the beginnings of the wiki application, to edit add a subject just login it uses open credentials,
the code as it stands here can be downloaded here (it differs slightly from the demo version as i've actually done some dev work on it)
Feel free to download add critic etc, I defiantly am still looking for someone that knows regex really well it would help greatly speed development along.
There will be movement on this and the forum application as I finally have a bit of time to work on these again, of course anyone that wants to help is greatly appreciated.
I failed to realise that wiki app + regexp Help! thread indicated that a text-to-HTML converter also suitable for a blog app was in the pipeline. Not familiar enough with the sharp end of wikis and blogs obviously.
I was vaguely intending to pick up the Java implementation of Markdown and give it a PL/SQL wrapper (unfortunately not suitable for Oracle XE). In the remote possibility that you weren't aware of Markdown, maybe looking at the source for some of the implementations would be of help.
A PL/SQL port of Markdown would be a useful addition to the toolkit.
Nope it wasn't a remote possibility, I've never heard of markdown I'll definatly check it out, no need to reinvent the wheel.
My only concern is I want to follow the syntax used in twiki ,http://twiki.org/, but hey if I can plug the java library in as a stopgap till a pl/sql version can be implemented that would allow me to focus on other parts of the functionality.
Can you please give me the URL to this - "library of built applications" ?
I am looking for come very similar to what you have got here.
would you be able to give me the entire application? Since you said, I went to source forge, but I founf only some sql scripts (.sql's)
Location Library of built applications?I suppose you mean Packaged Applications and Sample Code?
You find that here: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/application_express/packaged_apps/packaged_apps.html
