Application Express can easily be used by citizen developers, yet it is broad enough to be exploited by experienced enterprise developers. This enables developers to build small opportunistic solutions all the way up to complex enterprise-wide mission critical systems.


The Oracle Application Express engine runs directly in the Oracle Database and exploits the database's extraordinarily scalable and efficient architecture. You can also take full advantage of improved performance with Exadata, Real Application Clusters (RAC), and the In-Memory option.


The Oracle Application Express framework provides numerous security features out-of-the-box. Authenticate your users using LDAP, Oracle Single-signon, Oracle Database credentials, or HTTP Header variable. Exploit database features like Virtual Private Database and Real Application Security.
