Oracle Community Network
Amazed with the overall feature of Oracle Apex 4.1 and its increasing popularity in replacing Oracle Forms. I am currently working on a idea to implement an internal oracle community page with technical Forums (say like oracle forums, ask tom etc) along with a blog page. Can this be done using Oracle Apex? Can any one suggest a any sample public application/web site having the same features to have a look and feel.
Sure, pretty much any web site could be written with Oracle Apex; a blog or forum would be achievable. Personally, I'd rather use an off-the-shelf platform (e.g. wordpress for blogging), but if you need it integrated with your existing Apex site then it probably makes sense.
See an example here: http://www.apexblogs.info
Ask Tom also uses apex: http://asktom.oracle.com
There used to be sample applications on Oracle's web site, but it appears they've been removed: "The Application Express team is developing a number of new, more advanced applications. These new applications are planned to be available as part of the Oracle Database Cloud Service."
