Choosing Between Oracle APEX and Traditional Web Development

Oracle APEX is an advanced web development tool. Oracle APEX can be used by both developers & non-developers as it allows ordinary users to develop complex applications using drag-and-drop technology. A characteristic of Oracle APEX is that it will enable users to manipulate data, deploy Web apps and create dynamic user interfaces within one single pane of glass. Read on as we talk about the difference between them.

5 Differences Between Oracle APEX and Traditional Web Development

1. Time and Resource Costs:-

When comparing Oracle APEX with traditional web development, it is easy to see that the cost of developing a website using Oracle APEX is significantly less than traditional web development. This is because most of the work involved in creating a site using a traditional stack is handled by developers and designers. With Oracle APEX, however, all of the functionality needed to create your site can be handled within the application itself. This allows you to focus on what matters most – creating an engaging website that users will enjoy.

2. Flexibility:-

Flexibility is another important factor when considering how much time and money it costs to develop your site using different technologies or platforms. In addition to using different languages or coding styles within your application, you also have access to a vast array of tools and features that help make managing your content easier for you and your clients and collaborators. For example, suppose you are working with someone who has yet to gain prior experience with writing HTML code. In that case, Oracle APEX makes it easy for them to create functional websites without having any knowledge about HTML coding basics or other web design principles, such as usability testing (which can happen automatically through the use of various plugins).

Oracle APEX also provides an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface that allows users to easily add images, videos and other multimedia assets to their applications. This makes it possible for them to create dynamic websites that are visually appealing while still maintaining functionality by allowing users to quickly add new content without having to worry about any technical aspects of website development.

3. Infrastructure:-

The infrastructure of the application is a key factor to consider. Oracle APEX, compared to traditional web development, has more advanced features and technologies that can be deployed in the cloud, making it easier for developers to manage the applications.

In addition, the latest release of Oracle APEX provides an option of deploying applications on-premises or in the cloud. This feature allows you to choose between two deployment models depending on your requirements and budget.

Oracle APEX also provides features like developer productivity and performance enhancements, improved code quality and security features that help you build better applications faster.

4. Web Services and Integration:-

Oracle APEX is a web application framework that has been designed to support the development of hybrid enterprise applications. The framework provides an open architecture that can be used to build applications that integrate with other Oracle products such as DB2, PeopleSoft, Siebel and others.

Web services are a set of technologies that enable different components of an enterprise application to communicate using standard protocols and formats. A typical example would be an order entry application interfacing with CRM and ERP systems. In this scenario, the order entry system would issue queries to the ERP system based on parameters specified in the query (e.g., product name, quantity, etc.). The ERP system would then issue back data (e.g., inventory levels) needed by the order entry system to generate an order or invoice for the product ordered by a customer.

5. Reporting:-

Reporting is one of the key components in the development and implementation process. APEX has a built-in reporting system that provides real-time data to developers and administrators. This allows them to monitor performance, identify problems and fix them before they become major issues. Reports can be generated at any time and stored for future reference.

Reporting also makes it possible to generate detailed reports on any aspect of the application, such as user activity, number of visitors, or page views. With this information, you can determine your website’s effectiveness and areas that need improvement.
