Oracle Application Express is a rapid web application development tool for the Oracle database.
Using only a web browser and limited programming experience, you can develop and deploy professional applications that are both fast and secure.
Oracle Application Express combines the qualities of a personal database (productivity, ease of use, and flexibility) with the qualities of an enterprise database (security, integrity, scalability, availability and built for the web). This makes Application Express a natural replacement for MS Access databases and MS Excel Spreadsheets.
Key features of Application Express include Reporting, Forms, Charting, email and PDF printing.
Application Express is shipped as standard with all editions of 11g database.
