Using APIs to set Application and Build Status in Oracle Application Express 5.1

In Oracle Application Express it is possible to specify application-level attributes: Build Status and Application Status. With Build Status we can prevent that an application is being modified by other developers. With Application Status we can specify whether an application is available or unavailable for use.

Topic of this blog post is not to talk in detail about this two attributes (if you want to know more, then check the official documentation), but to mention how we can use APIs to manage this attributes in Oracle Application Express 5.1

Build Status

For setting build status we can use the following procedure:

     p_application_id IN NUMBER,
     p_build_status IN VARCHAR2);

For p_build_status we can specify RUN_ONLY  and RUN_AND_BUILD.  More details about this API can be found here.

Application Status

For changing the status of the application, we can use the following procedure:

        p_application_id IN NUMBER,
        p_application_status IN VARCHAR2,
        p_unavailable_value IN VARCHAR2,
        p_restricted_user_list IN VARCHAR2); 

I don't want to do a copy/paste from the official documentation, so please check this link for parameters description and examples.
