When you log in to Oracle Application Express, the Workspace home page appears. A workspace is a virtual private database allowing multiple users to work within the same Oracle Application Express installation while keeping their objects, data and applications private.
Your user name and workspace name display in the lower left corner of the page. The following three large icons display in the center of the page:
Application Builder. Use Application Builder to assemble an HTML interface (or application) on top of database objects such as tables and procedures. See "Application Builder Concepts" and "Using Application Builder".
SQL Workshop. Use the SQL Workshop to access tools for viewing and managing database objects. Click SQL Workshop to access the following database tools:
Object Browser. View, create, modify, browse, and drop database objects. Use the PL/SQL editor to edit and compile packages, procedures, functions, and triggers while taking advantage of error reporting. See "Managing Database Objects with Object Browser" in Oracle Application Express SQL Workshop and Utilities Guide
SQL Commands. Run SQL commands and anonymous PL/SQL, scripts, and saved queries. See "Using SQL Commands" in Oracle Application Express SQL Workshop and Utilities Guide.
SQL Scripts. Use SQL Scripts to create, edit, view, run, and delete script files. You can also upload and download scripts from your local file system. See "Using SQL Scripts" in Oracle Application Express SQL Workshop and Utilities Guide.
Query Builder. Use Query Builder's graphical user interface to search and filter database objects, select objects and columns, create relationships between objects, view formatted query results, and save queries with little or no SQL knowledge. See "Building Queries with Query Builder" in Oracle Application Express SQL Workshop and Utilities Guide.
Utilities. Use Utilities to load and unload data from the database, generate DDL, view object reports, restore dropped database objects, and monitor the database. See "Using Oracle Application Express Utilities" in Oracle Application Express SQL Workshop and Utilities Guide.
