A Primer on Real Application Security in Oracle Application Express

Dimitri Gielis, Director, Apex R&D

Sunday, Sep 18, 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. | Moscone South—304

When it comes to securing your data, it is best to do that on the lowest level possible, meaning in Oracle Database. Before, Oracle Virtual Private Database was one of the solutions for this.

Scott Spendolini, Co-Founder, Sumner Technologies

Sunday, Sep 18, 9:15 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. | Moscone South—304

There has not been a time in history when data security and privacy have been more prominent and important than today. With data breaches occurring almost weekly and high-profile news stories dominating the mainstream media, organizations are scrambling to make sure that their infrastructures, both on premises and in the cloud, are as secure as they can be. Fortunately, this task is not as daunting as it seems—when you use the proper tools. This session highlights how using features of the Oracle Advanced Security option, particularly redaction and encryption, can help developers build secure Oracle Application Expression applications.

Christoph Ruepprich, Programmer / Developer, Accenture Enkitec

Sunday, Sep 18, 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. | Moscone South—304

This presentation will demonstrate how we control hardware, such as buttons and lights, attached to a Raspberry Pi from an APEX application. With the use of Node.js and some publicly available libraries, we can gain access to the Raspberry Pi’s input/output port. We can poll these ports and display their statuses in APEX, and further switch lights on and off by clicking buttons in APEX. We will also have some audience participation, we participants can connect to our application and compete in a game.


Designing Optimal Oracle Application Express Applications for the Cloud

Patrick Cimolini, Senior APEX Consultant, Insum Solutions

Sunday, Sep 18, 3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. | Moscone South—304

Oracle Application Express is a mature, cloud-ready web development tool. This session explores design decisions that must be considered before building large, cloud-based Oracle Application Express applications. Cloud applications are often designed from within a narrow developer perspective. Developer designs are often suboptimal when they are exposed to a wider enterprise perspective. Based on over 10 years of Oracle Application Express development experience, the presenter highlights key design decisions that must be optimized to satisfy the interrelated and conflicting goals of all the stakeholders who design, build, test, maintain, use, and pay for large Oracle Application Express cloud applications. Careful, and sometimes painful, optimization through design leads to success.

Sunday, Sep 18, 3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. | Moscone South—306

This session examines all the most important development tools and technologies available from Oracle today, discussing the strong and weak points of Oracle Forms (the classical Oracle development tool, PL/SQL logic), Oracle Application Development Framework (declarative development with Oracle JDeveloper, Java business logic), Oracle Application Express (declarative development in web browser, PL/SQL business logic), JavaScript Extension Framework (brand-new JavaScript-based framework for building the user interface layer), and Oracle Mobile Application Framework (specialized Oracle Application Development Framework-like tool for mobile applications, generating native iOS, Android, and Windows applications). The presentation also includes recommendations for how to choose the right tool.
