Introducing Flows for APEX

About Flows for APEX

Flows for APEX is a cost-free, open-source process flow creation software. Designed with APEX developers in mind, it allows them to model and run process flows for APEX applications. It uses technologies very familiar to the APEX developer: APEX, PL/SQL, and SQL, in addition to a combination of visual process design and low-code techniques.

Flows for APEX is an indispensable tool at the start of development. It allows the developer to ‘team up” with the business user to understand and map out required processes. In addition, it enables them to discover together how to get the most out of APEX. Therefore, using Flows for APEX clarifies the development process and helps foster a more collaborative mindset.

A functionally rich process modeling solution

It only takes a few minutes to install and start using the software. And once processes are mapped out, you can start developing your data model and applications. Additionally, Flows for APEX removes the need to document processes after the fact. Instead, it becomes a permanent record of your process flows just as you build them.

Flows for APEX is highly regarded in the Oracle APEX development community. In fact, Oracle has described it as a “functionally rich process modelling solution.”

Flows for APEX from a technical standpoint

Flows for APEX is a packaged app for APEX 20.1. or higher.

It runs entirely within the Oracle Database just like APEX, which is in line with Oracle’s “converged database” strategy. This means:

  • Its definition is in the database
  • It is backed up
  • Disaster recovery is built-in.
  • It is scalable, just like the database
