be friends with Oracle and APEX. Commenting your rule is essential!

By Peter Raganitsch

Oh child, what took place?

Yesterday I delivered a tweet that is emotional reviewing a bit of (open supply) rule, that wasn’t documented well and didn’t consist of inline feedback:

From then on we switched far from Twitter, went along to rest, got up again, and had an incredible time with the household. Until we looked over my Twitter reactions and mentions.

Here are a few examples:

This discussion steered a way that is wrong partly painted a wrong image and wasn’t the things I had been after. I'D LIKE responses. I REALLY BELIEVE they truly are good and vital.

Simply because some reviews are wrong or unnecessary, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t comment at all.

The contrary does work: should anyone ever stumble across a comment that is wrong some rule, allows change it out. Lets enhance it. Lets repair it.

Regardless of how smart you are thought by you might be. In spite of how “self explanatory” you might think your genius rule is. Reviews are vital. Reviews is there to spell out the thinking behind your (crappy? ) rule to OTHER PEOPLE. They could never be because smart as you, they may not have the same information degree as you.

Heck, for several we all know they may perhaps maybe not be #orclAPEX designers at all. I’ve seen Java dudes (no offense) tempering with APEX applications. Mostly we come across regular database designers, or forms that are former scuba diving into APEX. They want guidance and a little more description of one's “oh so code” that is smart.

Now get the feelings that are personal and do your task. Precisely! And create the essential stunning rule, ever!

P.S.: I Am Aware, I'm Sure. Life is difficult, there isn't any time. No one would like to spend you for additional time. But commenting your rule just isn't more time. Composing documents about execution details just isn't more time. It really is an essentialPART of computer computer computer software development.

If you're in work that does not supply you with the time and energy to comment your rule, consider a big change.

Accelerating APEX Static Application and Workspace Data

A few years back it absolutely was deemed state-of-the-art to keep any type of additional resources (images, css/js-files) right on the webserver.

Needless to say it was simply the best-practice, left with numerous who had been unable to follow due to business limitations: no use of internet host, perhaps perhaps not permitted to keep files, a lot of laws, an such like.

Fortunately APEX 5++ gave us well working Static Application data and Static Workspace data. Now everybody is utilizing those to keep additional files.

Tomcat with ORDS APEX that is running behind reverse proxy

Not long ago we posted helpful information just how to put up nginx as a reverse proxy right in front of tomcat to operate ORDS and APEX. Start to see the post right right right here.

An open issue had been that APEX had been nevertheless thinking it operates on port 80 with http, while nginx had been running https on port 443.

APEX Survey

As a huge fan of APEX Packaged Applications i usually wished to have actual life usecase when it comes to Survey Builder.

Make use of a directory framework as Image Prefix in APEX

Often the APEX images live in a directory in your server called /i/, which are often changed on application or instance degree.

In 95per cent of all of the full cases i saw, the image prefix is /i/, frequently it's extended with a variation quantity like /i501/ or /i181/. Continue reading >

The Oracle APEX Reverse Proxy Gu published on 08.10.2018 by Peter Raganitsch

Just lately we mentioned changing the /ords Address to another thing, now i wish to show another real method to manipulate the URL.

I usually disliked deploying multiple ORDS circumstances, merely to offer paths that are different the exact same DB. This occurred away from legacy or SEO purposes up to now.

Now let’s arranged a easy reverse proxy to produce any URL framework you prefer for the APEX host.

Deploy ORDS on tomcat in a subdirectory

Frequently ORDS is deployed on Tomcat just as /ords, appropriate?

Where do you turn, if you would like a unique title than ords, let’s say you may like to see “bruce” in the Address? Simple solution: simply rename ords. War to bruce. War before deploying to Tomcat.

But exactly what if you'd like to have “mod/plsql“, like in http: //myserver. Tld: 8080/mod/plsql?
