Chapter 1. Know Your Horse Before You Ride It

The book presents Oracle Application Express (APEX), as a reporting solution. Oracle APEX is a 4GL technology based on PL/SQL that helps in rapid application development. It can easily be integrated with a number of reporting technologies and also has extensive reporting functionalities of its own. We will talk about these subjects in this book. In this chapter, we will see the practical details of APEX and try to understand the process by which the APEX engine processes our requests. A clear answer to this question will not only empower you to cook your own recipes in APEX but will also make you more confident in the development process and will cut your debugging time.
