Oracle APEX Application Development

Oracle APEX Application Development (APEX Service) is a feature-scoped and significantly lower-priced workload type of Autonomous Database that enables developers to rapidly build and deploy low-code APEX applications.

APEX Service supports APEX applications and corresponding Oracle REST Data Services endpoints. APEX Service also comes with development tools such as Database Actions. The underlying database is accessed over HTTPS. Developers who need full Oracle Net Services (SQL*Net) client access should use Autonomous Database for Transaction Processing and Mixed Workloads.

Application Express provides you with an easy-to-use browser-based environment to load data, manage database objects, develop REST interfaces, and build applications which look and run great on both desktop and mobile devices.
