NEW Oracle University Advanced APEX Workshop

Oracle University has just started to list the new Oracle Application Express Advanced Workshop course. Only Australia is showing up in the schedule so far, but other countries are sure to be available soon.

The course objectives are:
  • Monitor and manage your application by using custom reports
  • Manage application navigation by using hierarchical lists with images, database-driven navigation, site maps, and dashboards
  • Build custom tabular forms that use collections and validations
  • Manage application content dynamically by using JavaScript and AJAX
  • Extend your application to add binary large object (BLOB) data, send email notifications, use Web services, and integrate with SQL Developer
  • Manipulate application content through templates, themes, and style sheets
  • Create reports declaratively and use the print APIs
  • Secure your application by using LDAP and SSO and prevent SQL injection attacks and cross-site scripting and usage of Session State Protection
This workshop incorporates a lot of input directly from the development team. Marcie Young has done an excellent job of transforming these advanced techniques into a very worthwhile course, complete with lots of great exercises.

I reviewed much of the content and participated in the pilot of this course -- I must say I learnt a thing or three.
