Extending Oracle Application Express with Oracle Cloud Features: A Guide to Enhancing APEX Web Applications with Cloud-Native and Machine Learning Technologies
This book shows Oracle Application Express (APEX) developers how to take advantage of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) features for APEX that might otherwise go missed. You will learn how to use OCI features for data science tasks such as detecting anomalies in your data, training machine learning models, and much more. The book provides an in-depth look at Oracle Cloud features and demonstrates how they can be easily integrated into an APEX application. While the book focuses on developing for APEX, the approaches covered in the book are also applicable to any other modern web developer framework for applications running on the OCI platform.
For many organizations, the database is the heart of operations. Those who opt to invest in the Oracle Database can learn from this book how to maximize their return on investment. The book begins with an introduction to OCI and help on setting up your OCI developer environment. From there you’ll begin with security by learning to provide single sign-on via the Oracle Identity Cloud Service. Subsequent chapters take you through cloud-focused features such as Object Storage, Oracle Function, Oracle Machine Learning REST Services, and Oracle Cloud Anomaly Detection. You’ll even learn to troubleshoot email delivery services.
