Running an Oracle APEX application against MongoDB

This video demonstrates how to run an Oracle APEX application against MongoDB. The application contains a fully featured Interactive report and a form page running CRUD operations, both based on MongoDB data. 

In detail, it gives a brief introduction into the following techniques:
  • extracting data from a website with In this demonstration, the books about Oracle APEX are grabbed from an online store and will be used as example data for the application
  • uploading the data to MongoDB and showing the easy handling of a JSON-style data store
  • creating a RESTful API in Node.js using the modules Mongoose and Express.js
  • testing the Web Services with a REST client (PAW)
  • consuming the Web Services in Oracle APEX.  The data handling is achieved by using the latest JSON features shipped with Oracle Database 12c and Oracle APEX 5.

  1. Thanks for the sharing. I think you could also try Octoparse ( to extract the data from websites. It could also automatically turn the unstructured data to structured data without any coding. Also, it provides API access to get data. You could have a try.
