WCS Online

WCS Online is our support and demonstration site for applications developed with Oracle's Application Express (aka Apex) and open source technologies such as CodeIgniter and Postgresql.

Oracle Application Express (APEX)

Here's what Oracle themselves say about APEX:

"Oracle Application Express (Oracle APEX) is a rapid web application development tool for the Oracle database. Using only a web browser and limited programming experience, you can develop and deploy professional applications that are both fast and secure. Oracle APEX is a fully supported, no cost option of the Oracle database".

While it is true that APEX can deliver attractive web applications with limited programming experience, in the hands of experienced professionals such as ourselves it is more than capable of delivering scalable and feature-rich applications that stand comparison with any web technology currently available.

APEX is also fully compatible with Oracle 11g Express Edition which is the "free to use" version of their relational database management system. So you can be up and running with APEX in no time at all and at no cost.

(Visit http://apex.oracle.com to find out more about APEX).

To get a flavour of an APEX web application visit the following links (The selected application opens in a separate window):

Sample Application (4.x) Oracle sample application as supplied with Apex version 4.x

Open Source

We have been advocates and users of open source software since 1995 and over the course of the years have used many great technologies. These days we specialise in building web applications using CodeIgniter MVC, JQuery javascript library and Postgresql object relational database. We hope to be able to bring you a demo application which showcases the features of these great tools in due course, so please keep an eye on this page.

Contact us on info@wcsnet.co.uk if you would like to find out more about what these technologies can do for you.
