I simply love the Apex Listener that Oracle sent out a couple of weeks ago.
I now allways use it to do my (one developer = me) development, for a number of reasons.
- It’s easy to set up.
- I can edit my CSS and Images on the filesystem (no WebDav needed).
- It saves me resources within the database
I also use it for one of the production systems, because APEX would break down when doing heavy database work. (It’s a 10g and EPG is officially not supported). With the apex-listener the system gets a bit sluggish, but at least continues to work.
