SQL query result as JavaScript array

Today there was a need of using simple, dictionary SQL query result as an array in JavaScript. Solution is quite simple - region with PL/SQL Dynamic Content.

Here you have a short video with example. Changing Select List causes showing Checkboxes in rows, on which specific action can be processed.

Code of PL/SQL region, which creates array:
htp.p('var actions = [];');

for x in 
   from ACTIONS
htp.p('actions[' || || '] = "' || x.status_from || '";');
end loop;


JavaScript code for Dynamic Action, which uses the array:
    if (this.getAttribute("status") == actions[$v("P18_ACTION")]) { = "block";
    } else { = "none";

TWO-Factor Authentication with APEX application.

Two-factor authentication means that you must have two factors, to access your account. The first factor is something you know, like your login and password combination. The second is something you have, like a mobile device with a security app installed. That second factor — the mobile device with a security app — adds an extra layer of protection to your account. Even if hackers steal your password, they can’t log in, because they don't have your mobile device. Try 2FA on our SANDBOX environment! It is the most popular 2FA option based on Times-based One-Time Password (TOTP) alghoritm described in RFC 6238 and RFC 4226. TOTP is supported by Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy 2-Factor Authentication and many other mobile apps. The most popular online services like Facebook, Google, Twitter use TOTP to protect user's accounts. TOTP is a standard algorithm based on cryptographic hash method SHA-1. SHA-1 algorithm's implementation is available sin


About 10 years ago I tried to build APEX application on MS SQLServer. It was possible but performance was not satisfactory. (You can read this post here) ... Today I will describe how to use APEX with MySQL. Obviusly I don't think it is good idea to build APEX app only on MySQL. It can be used as part of Hybryd solution (Oracle + MySQL or Postrgres). My description covers integration with MySQL. As a result will be APEX application with Interactive Report and CRUD form based on MySQL data. Description contains two parts: First part is a MySQL site, Second part is a APEX application part Prerequisites: Oracle 11g+ APEX 18.1+ MySQL/Postgres RestSQL I. MySQL Part 1. MySQL contains simple  apexdb database with one apexutil table. 2. To use this database install RestSQL. What is RestSQL? RestSQL is an open-source, ultra-lightweight data access layer for HTTP clients. RestSQL is a persistence framework or engine in the middle tier of a classic three tier archi

How to return json with null value using apex_json.write(ref_cursor)

Few days ago I had to develop dynamic query json export module. As a sandbox I prepared PLSQL block: DECLARE c sys_refcursor; l_sql varchar2(4000) := 'select null as "col1", 100 as "col2" from dual union all select 200 as "col1", null as "col2" from dual'; l_file clob; BEGIN open c for l_sql; apex_json.initialize_clob_output; apex_json.open_object; apex_json.write('rowset', c); apex_json.close_object; l_file := apex_json.get_clob_output; apex_json.free_output; DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_line(l_file); END; { "rowset": [{ "col2": 100 }, { "col1": 200 } ] } As you can see above PLSQL code doesn't return null value pairs : ( apex_json.write(p_name IN VARCHAR2, p_cursor IN OUT NOCOPY sys_refcursor) procedure Signature 14 doesn't support null. How to fix it... ? APEX API provides apex_js
