Where's Wally? Or upcoming conferences for the first half of 2014 ....

Conference season has started as usual with RMOUG - where I've never been and still would love to go once. The conferences for the first half of the year where I will be presenting are listed below.

February 13, ODTUG online webinar
Together with Mia Urman I will be presenting "Running Oracle Forms from an APEX Application". About five years ago I wrote an article and presented about how to integrate Forms and APEX and this is another option in that area. You can join, for free, without travelling at the ODTUG site.

March 11, OUG Ireland, Dublin
Just like last year, I'll be attending Dublin early March. It's a very well organized conference in a beautiful venue. You can see all the presentations and all other information here. I'll be presenting "Best of both worlds: Create hybrid mobile applications with Oracle Application Express" - and "Finding the Needle in the Haystack or How to Troubleshoot an APEX Issue".

March 25, APEX World, Zeist
Officially the largest APEX-only conference in the world with an expected attendance of about 300 APEX enthousiasts. The complete - and impressive - agenda can be found here. I'll be doing the "hybrid" presentation again.

April 3-5, OUG Norway, Oslo - Kiel - Oslo
As most people know by now, this conference is on a cruise ship. So there's no escape ;-)
The agenda is awesome, with speakers from all over the world. Check this out. I'll be doing "An introduction into APEX" and "APEX and BI Publisher - a match made in heaven?"

April 29, APEX Usergroup, Dรผsseldorf
I've been invited to do a presentation at this event. Don't know which one yet...

June 5-6, OUG Finland, Helsinki
This will be my first visit to Finland. Really looking forward to this as the conference is somewhere outside of the city. I'll be doing the "BI Publisher" and the "hybrid" ones over there. The full agenda is not on line yet.

June 22-26, Kscope, Seattle
Last in the first half of 2014, but definitely not least, is Kscope. All information and the superb agenda can be found online. Apart from the stunning APEX agenda with three parallel tracks (I have to admit, I am biased, being the content lead) also the Developer Toolbox and Database tracks are very appealing to me. And then I didn't even mention the other tracks (Essbase, Hyperion, ADF & Fusion, EPM, BI & DWH) - until now that is...
Oh yeah, I'll be presenting the "hybrid" one again and "My first mobi - Starting mobile web development with APEX".

Hope to see you in one - or more - of these events!

Most presentations are sponsored by the Oracle ACE Program, extremely well organized by Vikki and Lillian.

Showing a success message after closing a modal dialog

APEX 5 comes with Modal Dialogs out of the box. Very neat. Especially for adding and changing data. And to minimise the number of time a user has to click, it could be useful to add a "Close Dialog" process after the actual data processing. When the data processing fails, the Dialog stays on top showing the error. When data processing runs fine, the Dialog is closed ... without any confirmation. And this might be scary for a shaky user.

So how can we provide the user some feedback? On Page 4 of the Sample Dialog Application you can see one solution: up on a Dialog Closed Event on the parent page it does a redirect to refresh the parent page appending the success message of the "Close Dialog" process. This has two drawbacks. First, it probably refreshes more than necessary. And second, if you're using multiple layers of dialogs (dialogs that open other dialogs) the message appears in the "parent dialog".
As an alternative you could follow these steps: 1…

A review of APEX World 2017 - Day 1

Last week the SS Rotterdam was the beautiful location of the largest gathering of APEX Developers worldwide. With around 380 (!) attendees a new high was set. And they came from all over the world : I spotted people from The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Germany, Denmark, Norway, UK, Ireland and the USA. And I even might have missed one or two ….

The event started with a presentation by the “father of APEX”, Mike Hichwa, talking about "Oracle APEX Past, Present and Future”. Of course everyone is curious what the APEX future might bring: Friendly URL’s, automated testing, more JSON, concurrent APEX versions, third party Oauth 2 authentication (think Facebook, Google), APEX app diff and more, a lot more, REST capabilities. And now we have to wait for APEX 5.2 … and that might take a while! 
After this keynote, the conference split up in three tracks. After the coffee break I returned to to big theatre where Geertjan Wielenga talked about "Finally Javas…

It's happening again ... running for the ODTUG Board of Directors ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the third time in a row I'll be running for ODTUG's Board of Directors. But after ending as a runner up twice, I am sure I'm going to make it this time! But not without your help!

My campaign statement this year is:
I have been attending and presenting at Kscope conferences since 2007. This not only resulted in a vast amount of knowledge, but also - and even more important - a huge number of friends from all over the globe.  I want to see ODTUG grow and spread this community feeling even more! 
My experience as an attendee, presenter and content lead has provided the basic foundation to be a director. Next to that, my personality and (global) network will be beneficial to the whole board and organization. 
Since March I have served on the Board of Directors in a limited term for a Director who stepped down due to a career change. This has allowed me to have unique insight of all the things that are going on in and around the ODTUG organization. As the train was already ro…
