Integrating APEX with OAM

Thanks to the hard work from Christian Neumueller from the APEX team and Ramana Turlapati from the Access Manager team we were able to successfully integrate Application Express into Oracle Access Manager. The result is a new white paper available via the OTN APEX on the Learn More page (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex/learnmore/index.html#tech). Simply scroll down to to Technical Information and White Papers section at the bottom to find the Integrating Oracle Application Express with Oracle Access Manager White Paper.

For those of you using EBusiness Suite you should be able to use this new white paper in conjunction with the Extending Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 with Oracle Application Express White Paper to integrate OAM into your environment.

Are you in Higher Education and use APEX?

For some time I have been interested in furthering the use of Oracle Application Express in higher education.
There are a number of institutions currently using Application Express either as part of their curriculum or for internal use.
One of the big problems is knowing who else in higher education is using Oracle Application Express and SQL Developer.

Therefore to provide a forum for people to come together I have set up a LinkedIn Group: Oracle APEX Educators SIG
Please join this group as a way to communicate ideas, collateral and knowledge.

Oracle E-Business Suite and APEX White Paper

The Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Application Express teams are proud to announce the release of the Extending Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 using Oracle Application Express white paper.

Oracle E-Business Suite delivers a wide range of functionality to handle core areas of your business processing needs. However, there are situations where you want to extend your information systems beyond the range of Oracle E-Business Suite. Many times these necessary extensions are meant to handle unique industry conventions, specific customer requirements, or perhaps to offer some other competitive edge. Sometimes these change requests are simple enough, but other times more extensive customizations are needed. In these scenarios, Oracle Application Express, also known as Oracle APEX, provides an easy way to create supplemental applications that are easily integrated with your Oracle E-Business Suite and its data.

This paper outlines how to extend Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 (and up) functionality using Oracle Application Express. Recommended architecture and security considerations are discussed in detail.

You can find the paper on the APEX OTN Site > Learn More > Extending Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 using Oracle Application Express {Under Technical Information and White Papers}

All the necessary files are also available from My Oracle Support Note: 1306563.1

This document helps customers and partners implement integrated Application Express extensions to the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 and up. The document is complete with a worked example. This solution also requires Oracle E-Business Suite Patch 9659153
