Now that I have all this free time

Well since 2.2 development is over seem like I've had a little more 'free' time, well free depending on how you look at it, and have been working on some example applications and some of the Open APEX work.

I changed the look of the Open APEX site and added an rss news feed.

I also put out a shuttle demo application for the Packaged Applications page. It's pretty nice demo and installs all the files needed to run the full demo and it even has a simple wizard to try your code out and give you the PL/SQL required to use the shuttle. I also included some changes from Michael A. Rife to add the option to copy instead of move.  You can expect to see more features in the future.

And finally I'm starting up a new Open APEX project where I will be continuing development of my htmldb_remix.js stuff going to rename it of course to apex_remix.js. Basically it will be advanced widgets and javascript functionality for use in APEX applications I think I will have multiple applications within this project each one dedicated to specific widget, I liked how the shuttle one turned out, and hopefully most will include a wizard to help build any PL/SQL or javascript code that will be needed in the page, some examples might not lend themselves to that but most should.

The one thing I have to watch is that most of these widgets at least that I will build, I would like to include in some way in future versions of APEX so I have to pick an open source licenses that allows for that, I guess I have some reading and some work to do.

Comments:

I'm looking forward to your Widget project. I've thought for a long time that there should be a way to implement a lot more javascript to make ApEx interfaces SING.. I've looked into a little AJAX, but haven't been able to spend enough time to really do anything useful yet. Keep us posted!

Yeah it's what I was hoping to do when I first created the htmldb_remix.js but it just kinda got pushed to the side, hopefully between some of the stuff that I've already created and things other people are willing to contribute we should be able to build some nice stuff.

It would be great if you could come up with an extentable framework for creating widgets specifically with relation to ApEx. Then we could all work together to put together a set of ApEx Extensions that are easy to implement and consistant across the set. In the mean time, Can you point me to good sites/Books for learning about AJAX? I really need to start boning up! Doug
