We want to install APEX in our environment but want to install it "outside" oracle. The reason for doing this is that the team owning the APEX delevopment is seperate from team managing the databases (Oracle DBAs). Can you give us a way to install APEX as it's own user (for ex. "apexuser") as it gets pre-installed in Oracle binaries?
If not, is it possible to just install oracle + apex (binaries only) & connect from a remote location (app server) to a DB using TNS entries (or something else?).
