Webinar today: jQuery in APEX–An Introduction for Database Developers

Today I’ll be presenting another webinar for ODTUG: jQuery in APEX – An Introduction for Database Developers. In this presentation I leverage existing skills in SQL and PL/SQL to introduce important concepts in jQuery and JavaScript. I’ve done this presentation a few times now and it’s always well attended – must be the result of a steady stream of Oracle developers getting into APEX. The webinar will run from 3 to 4pm EDT and, as usual, it’s free to attend.

I hope to see you there!

Oracle Application Express developers often have strong backgrounds in SQL and PL/SQL, but JavaScript is another story. However, JavaScript is a very important part of any well-built Web 2.0 application. Luckily JavaScript libraries, such as jQuery which is integrated into APEX, have made the language much easier to use. In this session, learn about jQuery through a series of analogies, nine in total, which will relate important concepts in the library back to what you already know in the database world.

Save Value on Cascade 1.1

We’ve just released an update to the Save Value on Cascade plug-in. There are two main changes in this release:

  1. Shuttles are now supported. This update actually comes courtesy of Matt Nolan, aka The APEX Freelancer. Many thanks Matt!
  2. Debug code was added. This will help to diagnose any issues should they occur.

You can view/download the updated plug-in, as well as our other plug-ins, by visiting our APEX Plug-in page.

Also, keep an eye out for a Modal dialog plug-in which will be released later this month!
