If you use Oracle database, Oracle Apex allows browser-based application development.
There are various issues with Oracle Application Express. It lacks advanced features. It is heavily dependent on Oracle database and required PL/SQL and Oracle XML DB-based installation. It adds the unnecessary load on a database for processing, disk, and memory. Usually, better design is to use databases for storing data and keeping applications logic outside the database. It’s a better approach for database agile development, scalability, etc.
