After months of hard work, we are proud to announce the general availability of the APEX extension Flows for APEX 21.1. If you are looking to model and run business processes all within the Oracle Database, make sure to check out Flows for APEX. You can download a free copy of this open source software at https://flowsforapex.mt-ag.com.
Major new features of 21.1 are:
- Model-driven approach to set process variables before and after each step
- 3 process plugins to declaratively integrate a process model in your own APEX app
- Major upgrade of the Flows for APEX application with numerous functional, productivity and UI enhancements, like:
- Restarting a step
- Side-by-side view
- Dark mode support
Have a look at the readme file in the software distribution to see a complete list of all enhancements.
Existing Flows for APEX customers can migrate to 21.1 by script, but should be aware of the fact that the transaction model has changed with 21.1, so your application might behave differently after the upgrade. The reason for this is a change in the transaction scope. Where in previous releases multiple steps were treated as a single database transaction, starting with 21.1, each step is now explicitly committed.
