3. Working with External Data on Oracle DB Docker

Brendan Tierney writes:

“With multi-modal databases (such as Oracle and many more) you will typically work with data in different formats and for different purposes. One such data format is with data located external to the database. The data will exist in files on the operating systems on the DB server or on some connected storage device.

The following demonstrates how to move data to an Oracle Database Docker image and access this data using External Tables. (This based on an example from with a few additional commands).”

7. New JS API in APEX 21.2

Daniel Hocjleitner writes, “As John already teased in his blog post about the JavaScript API changes in APEX 21.2, there is a new namespace coming.

Main purpose of it is to have an out-of-the-box replacement for Moment.js which is part of APEX since we introduced our Calendar region with FullCalendar version 3. In APEX 21.1 this region was updated to use the newer version 5 of the underlying FullCalendar library, and this particular version doesn’t come with Moment.js anymore and changed many other things, especially from an API point of view. If you’re interested in these changes in more detail, we created a blog posting back when 21.1 was released to help developers to get started with this new version.”

“The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted how and where work is traditionally done. But it also provided a unique opportunity for organizations to take analytics out of the back office and apply it in new ways – creating globally matrixed teams, providing new opportunities for employees, and ultimately changing the way project deliveries are executed. Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) has enabled us to do this and more in ways that were not as fully explored before the pandemic made it necessary.”
