Apex - end of 2014

What will 2015 bring?

APEX 5 is around the corner

Hi all, after interesting and dynamic 2014 a year has come to an end so I wanted to write my final post. 

All in all this has been dramatic year for APEX developers having 4.2.6 patch out and initial demo versions of release 5.0 announced we had plenty of thing to keeps us busy. Interestingly it has been 10 full year since APEX as technology started and this year brought the most to us so far. I do remember in 2008 main discussion on Oracle User Group Conference among APEX developers was on will it live long enough and will it be able to fully replace Oracle Forms. I thing the answer now is clear and glad to see future is looking really promising.

Even better is that Oracle is preparing another major release that should be the best one so far taking it again to another level which are all great news for us in APEX community. 

Word is that we can expect it to be release in first Quoter of 2015 so fingers crossed everything goes as planned. 

Personally I look forward even more as there are some new projects planned so there will be opportunity to work with latest version really testing it out and learning all new cool features that Oracle prepares for us. Similar to this year all things worth sharing will be posted here so don't you worry :)

From my blog experience perspective it is really nice to see that posts had been and are visited on daily bases which gives me even more confidence that this was a good decision. I can not thank enough all of you who made the effort, hopefully you found some interesting things for you. 

Blog future, I will continue to post as often as I can hopefully fueled with my latest project experience plus sharing some interesting news from APEX community space. It good to see our numbers are growing and "Thumbs up" to Oracle who are doing a really great job further developing all aspects of APEX.

To finish my last post all left to do is to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your families.
