    [b]APEX Essentials - Looking for early adopters[/b]

    135285
      I'm currently developing a new open source Oracle APEX development tool and I'm looking for early adopters/beta testers.

      Details can be found at http://essentials.oracleapex.info/

      Feel free to use this thread to give feedback, share ideas, enhancements, bugs, ...

      Thanks
      Patrick

          I'd love to help Patrick but I'm a relative beginner not only with Apex but also with PL/SQL, so I’m not sure I’ll be of any value.

            Hi Johannes,

            there is no limitation which skills you need. I think it's a really good to have a beginner as beta tester, because you ask different questions than an advanced APEX developer and you may see the value better how the tool can support you in your daily work.

            So feel free to send me a mail.
            Patrick

              Hi Patrick,

              First of all, thanks for the Apex Essentials project, looking forward to using it.

              One issue when installing I got several ORA-01031: insufficient privileges messages.
              Of course this was because the user I imported in didn't have create view/procedure rights. Maybe this is something to check in de prerequisites?
              Or just mention the rights needed to install. (create procedure, table, view, sequence...).
              That would save a lot of trial and error attempts.

              And a question, why the separate gif for the processing and not just use the processing3.gif standard in Apex?

                Peter,

                you are correct with the processing3.gif. I added the separate file, because I thought it's not part of the APEX distribution. Fixed that.

                About your "ORA-01031: insufficient privileges messages":

                In "Supporting Objects\Prerequisites" has this kind of privileges are checked.
                I tested that yesterday and it's showing up correctly when installing on 3.0 and 3.1 when a privilege is missing. Any idea what could be wrong? What privilege (exact statement) have you granted to your user.

                Thanks
                Patrick

                  will you plz explain what do you mean by a " New open source Apex development tool" ? Do you mean that a new version of APEX

                    I granted the following :
                    create any procedure to me
                    create any sequence to me
                    create any view to me
                    create any table to me

                    I think I could have left out the ANY, because the parsing schema is the schema of my user.

                    I can see that the prerequisites are indeed correct in your application, so I'm also surprised that the installation didn't stop there.
                    It is on a XE database by the way.

                      Hi Patrick,
                      i had a look on the demo of Apex essentials.When I click the Advisor icon,
                      I could see different application for checking.
                      If i want to include my application into it. how to do it.
                      As i am very new and in the learning process of apex, The question may be silly or worst. Please excuse me.

                      bye

                        Hello Syed,

                        this is no new version of ApEx. It's just a tool you can install in your environment and then you will get further information to improve the development of your applications.

                        Patrick already has some other nice tools. Just take a look into his blog (http://www.inside-oracle-apex.com/ ).

                        Regards, Tine.

                          Hi Srikavi,

                          I believe you need to install the app in your workspace.
                          For that workspace you can check your applications. Patick's tool integrate with the APEX look & feel, so you don't really see it's a different app. I tested a very early version and it worked nicely.

                          Regards,
                          Dimitri

                            Hi Srikavi,

                            as Dimitri has already written, you have to get the installation files for the tool to be able to test it with your own applications. The workspace which I have set up is just to take a quick look if it's a tool which is of interest for you.

                            If you want to participate, write a mail to beta@oracleapex.info


                            @Dimitri: Haven't received your beta participation mail yet. But I will send you the newest version anyway :-)

                            Patrick

                              @Patrick: I didn't say I was in the beta list, just that I tested a very early version ;-)

                                I was looking pages 1000 (report) and notice select statement:
                                SELECT APPLICATION_ID
                                , APPLICATION_NAME
                                , PAGES
                                , LAST_UPDATED_ON
                                , LOWER(LAST_UPDATED_BY) AS LAST_UPDATED_BY
                                FROM APEX_APPLICATIONS
                                WHERE APPLICATION_NAME <> 'APEX Essentials'
                                AND ( :P1000_FIND IS NULL
                                OR INSTR(UPPER(APPLICATION_NAME), UPPER(:P1000_FIND)) > 0
                                OR INSTR(APPLICATION_ID, :P1000_FIND) > 0
                                )

                                page 1010 looking good too, its very useful template,
                                and its just basics of APEX code here, looking so good and promises

                                  Hi Gordan,

                                  had to remove some of the preferencing stuff from the version which is installed on apex.oracle.com, because everybody is using the user guest -> someone would get the settings of the last user.

                                  This preferencing code could also be used as a template, because I think it a really nice but underused feature of APEX.

                                  Patrick
