16:15 Plugins Unplugged - Revised

Oracle Application Express enables developers to build data-centric web applications declaratively, meaning, you can build feature rich applications, running in web browsers. But APEX declarative functionality is limited, not providing the full capabilities of what is possible with web technologies these days. And, let’s admit, not all developers are able (yet) to easily integrate these capabilities in APEX. Fortunately APEX offers a mechanism to those who do seem to understand advanced HTML/JavaScript, to expand it’s functionality and expose it in a declarative way to other developers: Plugins. Unplug yourself from APEX’s declarative limits Plug-in’s are where it all comes together: PL/SQL, HTML, JavaScript, CSS and APEX framework. At first glance, Plug-in’s seem to be complex. But this isn’t true. Once you have a closer look, you will find that creating Plugin’s isn’t magic. With some basic knowledge and understanding of the APEX Plugin API one can build amazing Plug-in’s. All you need is an idea or inspiration. It will not surprise you, that most (well-known and community-wide used) APEX Plug-ins are made from components prior published as jQuery Plug-in’s or JavaScript Libraries. But it’s not just cut-n-paste. This session will start with some fundamental Plugin basics to start with and accelerate to more advanced techniques, which will help you to kick-start your own Plugin development. Additionally, this presentation will cover the recent changes of the plug-in framework since APEX version 5.
