APEX Special Series 2022

APEX Plug-in Development Done Right by Zsolt Angyal
Plug-ins have the ability to make developer's lives easier. Not only can they be used to introduce features that APEX lacks out of the box, but they're also great at modularizing already existing functionality into reusable components, saving time and cutting down on future maintenance costs. It's not a surprise that a great number of APEX Applications includes at least one, but rather more, homemade or 3rd party plug-ins. In this session I will discuss many of the lessons I've learned contributing to the biggest open-source APEX plug-in framework in the community, FOS. We will look at the important aspects of performance, security, consistency, extensibility and version-control across multiple plug-ins, but also at the aspects of documentation and presentation, all of which are imperative in building a successful plug-in. After the session the audience can ensure that they're on the right track either picking the right plug-in for the job, or professional building their own.

Confirm & Alert by Oliver Lemm
Confirm and alert are existing since the beginning of Javascript. Due the last versions of APEX the functionality was enhanced, especially with the new integrated alert and confirm actions in APEX 21.2. But what does it mean and what do we have to change? Is it now possible to use alert and confirm in a well looking format without any custom code? What about the APEX JavaScript API changes for these functions? Does the JavaScript Callback mechanique has any impact on this change? Even if you think it's a no brainer, there are some useful hints how to use this changed feature.
