Oracle Application Express is a rapid web application development platform for the Oracle Database.
Developers assemble an HTML interface (or application) on top of database objects with wizards or direct input. Each application is a collection of linked pages using tabs, buttons, or hypertext links.

1.3 About Database Applications
A database application is an interactive user interface (UI) that enables you to display, add, update, or delete information stored in a local Oracle Database or an external data source using REST-based APIs. A database application can display information in many formats, including static and interactive reports, forms, charts, and interactive grids.
This guide explains how you can customize interactive grids and interactive reports. In an interactive grid or interactive report, you can customize the appearance of report data through searching, filtering, sorting, column selection, highlighting, and other data manipulations. You can save your customizations in the application or, depending on the developer’s configuration, you can also download reports locally for offline use.
This guide also explains how to import data into an Oracle Application Express application using an existing application Data Loading Wizard.
1.4 About Websheet Applications
Websheet applications are interactive web pages that combine text with data. You can define these highly dynamic applications in a number of ways.
Websheet applications include navigation controls, search capabilities, and the ability to add annotations such as files, notes, and tags. Websheet applications can be secured using access control lists and several built-in authentication models.
