We have an application where we would like to periodically refresh the data in the underlying tables after a certain period of time (5 minutes). Once the refresh has taken place, we would like to refresh the information on the APEX page to reflect the changes.


1. Is there any way to execute the procedure in regular intervals in APEX?

2. Using DBMS_JOB package we can execute the procedure but is this suits for this kind of requirements or there any other methods available?

3. After executing the procedure is it possible to refresh the APEX page? If yes how this can be achieved? Is there any sample code available?
