A snippet from the Oracle Open World APEX 4.0 presentation:
- Easy way to enhance the existing built-in functionality of Oracle APEX with new item types, region types, dynamic actions, etc.
- Developers use in similar fashion to native widgets
- Wizard support and declarative setting of attributes
- Included in APEX application export
- By providing this plug-in system in APEX, we want to engage the APEX community to create a rich ecosystem around Oracle APEX.
In the demo the APEX Dev Team is showing an Amazon style 'star rating' (as an Item Type Plug-In). (like the image above)
So maybe now is time to gather ideas for Plug-Ins (using this cool collaboration tool). So don't be shy and add your ideas about the Plug-Ins you think you could use (or even create yourself !) or are just very cool....
Custom Item Types
- Amazon like star rating
- Google Wave
- Google Visualizations
