Oracle APEX Application Development 22.2 introduces several new features and many enhancements to existing functionality. The new workflow approval component allows developers to easily integrate task management into their APEX applications. Further enhancements to progressive web apps (PWAs) enable a more native mobile user experience for end users. The new application search functionality provides declarative search functionality and a new "Invoke API" process type enables developers to easily map stored procedures to APEX form items. We’ll share a comprehensive overview of the features introduced with this release and will include several demonstrations of our new capabilities.

In this presentation, we will learn how to use MySQL Heatwave in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). We will set up 3 node InnoDB Cluster for ZERO data loss using High Availability, and will cover the steps to test failover.

Also, we will discuss Asynchronous Replication set up and fail over steps. Basic understanding of OCI, VCN, Instances, MySQL Heatwave will be covered as we go through the set up of HA

Exploring Rolling Upgrade - Upgrade your Database with near Zero Downtime

The average time to perform a database upgrade is one to two hours. This downtime would not be acceptable for many organizations as it could significantly impact businesses. In this session, we will cover one of the little-known gems within the Oracle Database that database professionals can use to address downtime. The rolling upgrade feature significantly reduces downtime during an upgrade from hours to minutes. Come and join us to discover how this feature can change the way your company does database upgrades forever!

“Modern app dev and microservice architectures have made observability an absolutely critical requirement for DevOps. Currently, there are a number of disparate tools which can make this difficult and inefficient. Furthermore, app and database observability tools are currently quite different and separate, as are on-prem and cloud-based tools. Grafana provides a single-pane-of-glass view of metrics, logs, and tracing with the ability to correlate and drill-down between them. Further, Oracle’s open source Unified Observability Exporters provide metrics, logs, and tracing into the database thus providing a highly-customizable end-to-end observability experience that is unique in the industry and entirely cloud native. In this session, we will describe the details of this solution and the simplicity involved in setting it up.”
