Oracle Tips by Burleson
Exporting the Application
This is the main function that is needed to move
the application to production, and it is an easy one! This function
is performed from the application’s home page.
Navigate to the Application home page.
Click on the Export / Import icon.
On the next page, choose the Export option and click Next.
The next page is the Application Export
page. The tabs across the top of the Export Application region, as
shown in Figure 14.7, provide the navigation to all attributes of the
application: Application; CSS; Images; Files; Themes; and User
On the Export Application page:
Application: Select the application
File Format: Select the file format to
export to. As a personal preference, I always choose Unix even if
I am on a Windows operating system. Either format will work.
Owner Override: To make a different
schema the owner of this application, that choice can be made
Build Status Override: Choose the Build
Status. Choosing Run Application Only will import the application
so it can only be executed. The developers will not be able to
see the application listed in the Application Builder home page.
As of: This is normally left blank.
However, if it is possible that a page was deleted by accident
during development, this option can be used to export the
application as of five minutes ago, a time before the page was
deleted, and then re-import the application to rescue the deleted
page. After re-import, the page will be there again.
Click Export Application.
The File Download window will display with a default filename
representing the application id. Click Save and save the file.
See? I told you it was easy…
