Intro to Oracle for SQLServer Developers and DBAs – Part 3
After finally getting the GUI “SQL Developer” tool installed, see earlier blog Intro to Oracle SQL for SQL Server Developers and DBAs, I one day noticed an Oracle Icon on my desktop, clicked it, and found the web interface for managing Oracle. I’ve seen in the trainings from Pluralsight that 12c has a much nicer web interface; but at least now I now there is for the 11g Express Edition (XE).
The URL on my machine is: http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex/f?p=4950:7:3175421414017644::NO. I haven’t yet figured out what all the codes are. If I just put http://127.0.0.1:8080 the browser prompts for userid/password (not on a web page) and then gets unauthorized. If just try http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex then I get a valid web page, that wants me to logon to a workspace.
Major Screens in the Oracle Web Interface
Oracle 11g Web Interface – Home Screen
Oracle Web Interface – Storage
Oracle 11g XE Web Management – Sessions
Oracle 11g XE Web Interface – Parameters
This is what happened when I tried just the URL: http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex
