Oracle Apex (HTML-DB) best practices certification

Oracle Apex Tips by Donald Burleson


Oracle Apex is a very flexible development tool and it's very important to follow generally accepted best practices for developing Apex applications.  These areas of Apex best practices include coding standards, quality assurance infrastructure (version control, and production regression testing), migration control, and standardization of Apex development environments.


Just call for expert Apex consulting and certification for adherence to Apex system best practices.


we can provide Apex experts on site, with about 2-6 weeks advanced notice, depending on the consultant and the length of the engagement.

BC consultants have extensive experience in system and server administration and we can certify the OS, app server and Apex system to see if it conforms to generally accepted Apex best practices.

BC is very proud of our Apex expert consultants and we are the only Oracle consultancy to openly publish our Oracle Apex consulting prices:

Use a proven Apex consultancy


Not all Apex consultants are equal, and you should engage proven Oracle experts with a proven history of successful Apex  development. 


BC has implemented some of the world's most complex Apex systems, with a fully integrated schema, sophisticated screen interfaces (automated device interfaces, AJAX, Javascript), and large Apex systems with over 500 screens.  We know how to manage large-scale systems development with Oracle Apex.

BC is proud to offer some of the best Apex consultants with no limitations on on-site consulting, and we have a host of expert Apex managers and developers:

  • John Garmany - A retired Army Lt. Col. and Army ranger, Col. Garmany has over 20 years of IT coding and management experience. John was chosen by Oracle Press to write the officially authorized edition of the "Oracle Application Server 10g Administration Handbook" and he is considered a leading expert on Apex and App Server technology.

  • Kent Crotty - An experienced Apex developer with thousands of hours developing Apex applications, Kent is the author of the bestselling Apex book ?Easy Oracle Application Express?.

  • Steve Karam - An Oracle ACE and Oracle Certified Master, Steve was asked to present at Oracle Openworld 2006 to discuss his extensive experience with advanced Apex and AJAX technology.

BC consultants have extensive experience in system and server administration and we can certify the OS, app server and Apex system to see if it conforms to generally accepted Apex best practices.


Apex environmental best practices


It's critical to establish DEV, TEST, and QA databases, with full version control and migration procedures to ensure proper production migrations.  BC consultants can also advise on generally accepted Apex best practices for version control and quality control.  Oracle Apex best practices fall into these general categories:

  1. Version Control

  2. Change Management (migration standards)

  3. Apex screen auditing

  4. Oracle DML Auditing

  5. Code Library management

  6. Apex Branch/Computation Validation

  7. Screen Item Validation

  8. Apex Region Management

  9. JavaScript Management

  10. Application & Schema Security


Apex coding best practices


Application coding standards will ensure uniformity within the application and make Apex development faster and more efficient.  Common Apex coding best practices include:

  • Affirmative error checking - All process logic will check all non-zero Oracle return codes.

  • Standard help keys - Complete Help documentation will be implemented with the standard F1 Help key and all online help screens will have context sensitive (mouse-over) descriptions.

  • Fast validation - All HTML screens will use Java for instant field entry validation, before going to the database.

  • Standardized screen templates - Development of large-scale databases are far easier when using a standard screen content.

  • Dynamic included content - reusable screen widgets can greatly simplify and standardize common application functions.

In sum, savvy corporations will retain BC Apex experts to certify that there Apex application conforms to generally accepted best practices.
