APEX Charts LogoOne of the most-mentioned new features in Application Express 5.1 are the new Charts based on Oracle JET. JET is targeted at intermediate to advanced JavaScript developers working on client-side applications. It's a collection of open source JavaScript libraries along with a set of Oracle contributed JavaScript libraries that make it as simple and efficient as possible to build applications that consume and interact with Oracle products and services, especially Oracle Cloud services. 

Oracle JET contains a lot of components for data visualization - and these are the foundation for the new HTML5 based chart types in Application Express 5.1. Our latest blog posting introduces these modern, responsive and accessible charts, describes their features and how to upgrade applications from a previous Application Express release.
