Beginning Oracle Application Express 4.2 introduces version 4.2 of the popular and productive Oracle Application Express development platform.

The release of APEX 4.2 brings extensive new Flash and HTML 5 charting capabilities, enhanced themes for mobile applications usable from phones and tablets, RESTful web services support, enhanced application packaging, and the many redesigned wizards give a new and fresh feel to the user interface.
