Apex- Oracle’s Best Kept Secret

What is Oracle Apex?

Oracle Application Express (Oracle Apex, previously named Oracle HTML-DB) is a freeware software development environment based on the Oracle database. It allows a very fast development cycle to be achieved to create web based applications.

APEX is Oracle’s answer to wizard-based Web Development. It certainly is full of wizards! APEX contains metadata (lots of it) on everything in the tool, too. It produces dynamic HTML and it’s fast! APEX uses the PL/SQL module for Apache (mod_plsql). It doesn’t use any Java code. Anything you can do in SQL or PL/SQL can be done using APEX. APEX provides a nice Web-based team development environment for your organization.

Version Control with Subversion

Introduction

Version control is the art of managing changes to information. It has long been a critical tool for programmers, who typically spend their time making small changes to software and then undoing those changes the next day. But the usefulness of version control software extends far beyond the bounds of the software development world. Anywhere you can find people using computers to manage information that changes often; there is room for version control.

And that’s where Subversion comes into play.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

This article aims to look at implementation of OCR solutions in transaction handling processes to further optimize accuracy and productivity.

What is OCR?

Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text (usually captured by a scanner) into machine-editable and searchable text/content. In today’s world, where information is critical, the ability to create live content where before there was only static images must be worth 10 times than the source.

Oracle External tables – Overview

Overview on Oracle External tables

External tables can read flat files (that follow some rules) as though they were ordinary (although read-only) Oracle tables. Therefore, it is convenient to use external tables to load flat files into the DB. External can be used like SQL tables in querying purpose. So we can use it for insert and update of data into permanent tables. No DML can be performed on external tables but they can be used for query, join and sort operations. Views and synonyms can be created against external tables. They are useful in the ETL process of data warehouses since the data doesn’t need to be staged and can be queried in parallel.

Streaming Video Concepts

STREAMING
Streaming is a technique for transferring data such that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. Streaming video is a term applied to the compression and buffering techniques that allow one to transmit and view video in real-time through the

Internet. In other words, streaming media is the simultaneous transfer of digital media files such as video, audio, and data through a server application that can be displayed in real-time by client applications. Once a streamed file has been downloaded and viewed, the physical file is no longer present on the user’s computer or Mobile Devices.
