How it works…..
The SoftBASE MasterApp is a ready made, native APEX application, which you copy and add your functionality to. It does exclude any usage of APEX components, plugins or other APEX Frameworks, you might find useful.
With APEX, Oracle has provided a powerful RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool, which enables developers to deliver amazing applications to the web, for their users within a very short time. However, often these applications become, either standalone with a separate security and navigation model, or it becomes increasingly complicated to build applications together into a common company/enterprise structure. Menu navigation is often, either hardcoded or a part of a fixed button based workflow structure, that is very hard to maintain or change, as the number of applications and pages increases. This is why APEX often is regarded only suitable for smaller application development.
The SoftBASE MasterApp solves this and adds modularity to APEX, and separates the administration of authentication, authorization and navigation from the application. This means, when you plan your app, you can focus on functionality, and to structure your applications into functional units, much like an ADF programmer or a forms programmer is used to do.
Afterwards, or simultaneously with your App development, you define the navigation within the App and between Apps in the SoftBASE MasterApp administration module. The navigation, which is defined on a modular level, provides seamless linking of APEX applications and presents them to the user seamlessly as if they were one application.
The SoftBASE MasterApp fits collaboration and both complex and simple application development and there is of course full integration to Google G-Suite and Microsoft Office.
Furthermore SoftBASE has proven, tested and ready-to-use functionality that can be implemented as well and that will save you time, resources and investment.
The SoftBASE MasterApp is a pre-built support for your application structure and framework, so that you can use APEX as an effective RAD tool, and deliver professionally built and amazing looking applications fast to your users. This without compromising an overall enterprise structure for authentication, authorization, access (subnets) and navigation.
The SoftBASE MasterApp enables you to build smaller, function specific applications, rather than applications with everything within. After the applications are built you can then join them in modules and navigation.
Your team is better supported in splitting the development work as well as the maintenance. Delivering improvements to specific functions becomes much faster, efficient and with a lot less effort.
We deliver the SoftBASE MasterApp to both end user developers as well as consultants for developing APEX applications or migrating forms applications for end users.
Here is what’s in it for you…..
Central user administration of users and roles
Central authentication and authorization without coding for all apps
Grouping of the APEX application into modules
Authorisation with grants to modules, and possible revoke per application or page
Dynamic definition of navigation per module
Small applications as a part of a bigger UI or system with much less coding
Easy definition of data entry wizards
OAUTH2 integration between data and documents (Office 365, OneDrive, GDrive, G-Suite) including videos and photos (*)
Integration between data, mail and calendar (*)
Dynamic integration to Google Maps (*)
More languages on both UI and data with no coding
Role based designer enabling better user experience
Optional add-on functionality from SoftBASE
* Data can be different kinds of data, each with specific document folders and links.
Further benefits are of course that you do not have to develop the above functionality or add-on functionality from SoftBASE which saves you a lot of time, money and resources.
All of this for only €14 per named user in one application per month.
