jQuery is the way of the future in what concerns JavaScript framework integration with Oracle Apex. In the last months, several Oracle Apex Bloggers have posted nice examples to take Apex applications interfaces to another level taking advantage of jQuery functionalities.

Today, on the project’s 3rd birthday, the jQuery development team has announced the release of jQuery v1.3, the latest and greatest release of jQuery which includes a lot changes and new features like:

  • Sizzle Selector Engine
  • Live Events

    > jQuery Event Object Overhaul

    Does this mean if I haven't started using it yet, I should wait until 1.3.1 is out so I'm using the new syntax?

    According to this post (http://blog.jquery.com/2009/01/14/jquery-13-and-the-jquery-foundation/) published on jQuery official blog, they're planning a jQuery 1.3.1 release sometime within the next week or two to correct some bugs.
    In my opinion there is no reason to not start using it right away.
