Oracle APEX is a fantastic web-dev tool because:
- Applications without data are not very useful. APEX provides easy access to the one of the most popular databases in the world, Oracle.
- The Oracle RAD stack is an inclusive technology stack based on three core components: Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS), Oracle APEX, and Oracle Database. This stack provides all the necessary components to develop and deploy world-class, powerful, beautiful, and scalable apps. There are no other moving parts of additional components required.
