Oracle APEX + Server-side JavaScript

For developers that know SQL and PL/SQL, no other framework is as empowering as Oracle Application Express (APEX). But not all developers know how to program using PL/SQL.

In Oracle Database 21c, developers now can write server-side code in JavaScript. Younger generations and JavaScript professional developers who chose that technology as a life career can now be part of the team and participate in your APEX applications' code base. As a result, you can now leverage a massive set of JavaScript libraries for tasks that are hard to solve in PL/SQL.

In this hands-on lab, learn how to utilize that feature and start writing server-side JavaScript in the different areas of Oracle APEX. We’ll start with the SQL Commands, Processes, and Validations, and end using external modules to empower your APEX application even further.
Important Note: In order to provision Oracle Autonomous Database 21c, you will need an Oracle Cloud account in one of these regions: Germany Central (Frankfurt) - FRA, US East (Ashburn) - IAD, US West (Phoenix) - PHX or UK South (London) - LHR. If you currently do not have an account, you can create one here and specify one of the regions above.
