APEX Best Practices

When building many APEX applications, it is good to think about some best practices concerning as you go along.

APEX is so easy to get started with, that many developers just start an application, as a prototype, and gradually this application is adapted by the end users, and “glides” into a production state. Thinking about at few simple guidelines during the development phase, can really help make the maintenance/enhancement phase a lot easier.

I have divided the best practices into 3 areas: Installation, Pre-development and Development. Many of the practices are learnings from APEX books, seminars, and experience from many APEX projects.

Anton Nielsen: Oracle Application Express (APEX): Three Kinds of Session State : Oracle, 10g, 10gAS, Application Express (Apex), C2 Consulting

One of the best features of APEX is its ability to manage session state for you. One of the trickiest things you run in to when getting in to advanced development, though, is understanding just when session state is updated and when it is persisted.
