Oracle Application Express (APEX) is a low-code development platform that lets you build scalable, secure enterprise apps, with world-class features, that can be deployed anywhere. With APEX you can design, develop, and deploy responsive, database-driven applications, either on-premises or in the cloud.

Using only a web browser and limited programming experience, you can rapidly develop and deploy professional applications that are both fast and secure for any device, from desktop to mobile.

Oracle Application Express is a low-code tool that boosts productivity, ease of use, and flexibility. It also includes features necessary for an enterprise development tool, including security, integrity, scalability, and availability.

If you have the Oracle Database, you already have Application Express. Application Express is a no-cost feature of the Oracle Database, and:

  • Is fully supported by Oracle
  • Has been included with Oracle Database since 2004
  • Can run wherever the Oracle Database runs
  • Exploits all features of Oracle Database
  • Scales with the Oracle Database

Thousands of customers have created applications, using Application Express as a platform,  that range from small opportunistic solutions to enterprise-wide mission-critical systems. You can use it to build a wide variety of applications, from the most simplistic form and report on a table, to very complex multilingual applications that interface with numerous back-end systems.

Oracle used APEX to build its own Oracle Store so you can see how well that turned out. To see many other interesting use cases, visit the Built with APEX site.

Oracle Application Express Community also features many use cases that might inspire you.
