Oracle Application Express (APEX)

Pique Solutions conducted a study comparing a no-/low-code application development approach with a traditional JavaScript framework approach to seek the quantitative and qualitative differences in developing two real-world application modules—interactive grid and faceted search. Specifically, we compared development on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using Oracle Application Express (APEX) with a traditional approach using a JavaScript framework (ReactJS) while leveraging existing libraries and writing code to produce comparable deliverables to the greatest extent possible.

Oracle APEX is a popular low-code development platform for rapidly building opportunistic and data-driven enterprise applications. APEX, combined with Oracle Database, provides a fully integrated environment to build, deploy, maintain, and monitor data-driven business applications that display well on mobile and desktop devices. React is an open-source JavaScript library for building user interfaces or their components. It is maintained by Facebook by a community of individual developers and companies. React can be used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications.
