Learn how to access REST services from within Application Express. The presentation will show, how to invoke a REST Service, how to process JSON or XML responses and how to build reports or charts on top of this. Finally, attendees will get an outlook on future trends regarding APEX and REST.In the old days, things were simple: Data was in the (Oracle) database and APEX applications worked with that data. But today, we have to integrate data from different sources all the time. These data sources can be on the internal network, but also on the internet.Today, the REST architecture is commonly used to interface between different systems: REST services are often provided, so we want to use these REST services with the Oracle Database and APEX applications. The presentation will give a brief introduction to REST, cover the building blocks to invoke REST Services and to process the response and finally put everything together in Application Express.
