A New Dawn: From Oracle Apex to Generative AI

Hello dear readers, If you've been here before, you'll remember a time when this space was filled with insights and tutorials on Oracle Application Express (Apex). It's been over a decade since my last post, and the tech landscape has shifted remarkably since then. Today, I'm excited to delve into a topic that has piqued my interest in recent years: Generative AI, specifically focusing on prompt engineering for models like GPT and platforms such as Midjourney. Why the shift? In the past, I explored the intricacies of Apex, offering a helping hand to many as they navigated that ecosystem. But as I evolved in my tech journey, I became fascinated by how AI can generate content, assist in decision-making, and even partake in creative processes. What is Generative AI? Generative AI models, like GPT by OpenAI, are designed to produce content. By feeding them prompts, these models can write essays, poems, code, and even music. But the true art lies in "prompt engineering&

Asynchronous file upload to an APEX_COLLECTION

The reason is simple, sometimes APEX tries to insert the same value (WWV_FLOW_COLLECTION_MEMBERS$.SEQ_ID). A workaround consist of managing queues on the server side.

Google Security - Hall of fame - Honorable Mention

This summer, I discovered a bug in the billing module of Google AdWords . Working with the Google Security Team, we have been able to reproduce and fix the problem. Thus, my name is found on the Google Security Hall of Fame . Usually, I don't dig for exposure, but when I do, I do it Béton! ;)

Oracle FORMS to APEX

When Chuck Norris uses FORMS it's already converted to APEX. Since none of us is Chuck Norris, we need to use APEX Framework to ensure a perfect Oracle FORMS conversion project. This is where the work of SIE comes into play.
