I was getting my daily dose of Apex blog posts when I noticed this advertisement:
"Well, this is strange", I thought... it says "Oracle Forms" there in the URL, and in the illustration in the middle of the page, yet the advertisement and the page heading talks about replacing "APEX". There is also a claim that the latter "costs a fortune", but as we all know Application Express is a no-cost option in the Oracle database. WTF?
There is also a link to an 8-page whitepaper on "Migrating Oracle Apex Applications to Java" (http://www.wavemaker.com/pdf/Migrating-Oracle-Apex-Apps-To-Java-With-WaveMaker.pdf). This whitepaper includes the following screenshot:
As well as this table:
OK, so it is clearly Oracle Forms that is depicted and described here, but labeled as if it was Oracle Apex.
At best, this is a clueless mistake made by some marketing sod who did a global Find & Replace from FORMS to APEX. At worst, this is deliberately misleading.
In any case, it's just wrong, wrong, wrong. I don't know about you, but I would not trust a company that is either incompetent, dishonest, or both. I'll stick with Apex, thank you.
