The Solution

When asked about his experience with using APEX and FOEX to migrate from Oracle Forms & Reports, Mr. Ibrahim Al-Shut, the IT Manager of United Insurance, stated: "I think developing critical business applications using APEX & FOEX is very much faster than ADF. It would have taken at least double the time if the applications had been developed using ADF and that’s assuming that our development team already had the required level of proficiency and experience in using both JAVA and PL/SQL."


"The combination of Oracle APEX and FOEX is the perfect choice for us. They are cost effective, state of the art web development tools that can be used to modernize legacy apps, replace Oracle Forms or to develop feature-rich complex business applications for web or mobile."
