mongodb vs oracle database

When researching on choosing nodejs, mongodb and jquery combination vs oracle apex. Came across this article which clearly list the differences.


One drawback of mongodb is it cannot handle transactions and one of my favorites the triggers and to a extent data size.

Oracle Cloud vs Amazon cloud (Interesting offering for Database Storage)

I was just curious to understand what Oracle and Amazon has to offer on respecting Database storage over the Cloud offering.

Oracle has a 30 day trial which is awesome and Amazon has 1 year free trial which is stunning as well.

here is some link to the same, planning to research it further.

Great UI is possible with Apex

Oracle Apex vs PHP

As part of core team of developers working with best of talent in Oracle Apex product I always loved Apex as one of the best RAD framework to build web Apps. 

The other day i had a discussion with one of my friend and was talking about PHP and then i thought of comparing PHP and Oracle APEX, finally stumbled on this posting in Oracle forum. 


Oracle apex is best when you don't need to worry about UI part and concentrate on data and business logic.

The great Indian game Tambola Ticket using Apex

I like to write games. I wrote my first complete and functional  game using C language for playing Tennis way back at 1997.  Still remember all those code 


void main(void) {

The above code was named as sona.c (named after my pet cat named Sona) with some 1000+ lines written in turboC compiler. The PC used for building this code is 200 Mhz :) Intel Machine. The reason for building this game is, the institute never allowed to bring in Game or any exe files for playing because of the great risk of Virus. This restriction made me to write my own game so none will question me or even if they delete the .exe had the .c file to compile and build .exe again and again :) and also shared the game every student whom i know :). 

That's a big Story :), Story Apart.

Thought of building something with Apex for Games, rather you can say fun with PL/SQL for building games. Then i thought about the great Indian game called tambola ticket where ticket will be given to customers with random numbers between 1 and 100 and they need to mark the number which is called by the organizer. The guy who gets all the numbers first will win certain prize. 

I built the same game using Apex and is available here http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=39905:TICKET
The game was used by some of my friends and also used by one of the top IT Company internally for their employee club event.

This is just a beginning and there is no limit with Apex & PL/SQL...
