APEX Installation

Hello

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?).

Thanks
Gaurav

APEX is built into the database.  The application pieces are stored in the database.

What are you wanting to install 'outside' Oracle?

Never done it personally but I have heard about is developing in one database then it is easy to export/import the app to other databases.

we wanted to do this . As APEX in my working place is in a way getting to be used in more agressive way . Represting different set of report for different set of application . So we are in process of decentralizing the use of APEX . So respective team / group of people manage and maintains it individually

OK, so you are wanting to decentralize development efforts to multiple 'teams'.  That still doesn't answer what part of APEX you want outside of Oracle.

I believe this is done through workspaces in APEX.  Hopefully another Expert that has worked with APEX will be along shortly and can confirm this.

Until they show up, you can read about workspaces here:

My guess is you just closed this out so you can ask a new question.

Can I ask why the "B" penalty grade?

Please review:
http://support.experts-exchange.com/customer/portal/articles/481419-what-grade-should-i-award-?b_id=44

B is the grade given for acceptable solutions, or a link to an acceptable solution. A B grade means the solution given lacked some information or required you to do a good amount of extra work to resolve the problem. When closing the question, the asker should explain why a B grade was awarded.
