It looks like two products overlap: Apex Visual force and Oracle Application Express (APEX).

The following questions both have the same tag :

Agreed. I've edited the oracle tag wiki accordingly. – Jeffrey Kemp Feb 26 '11 at 2:36
Should I change apex tags to oracle-apex when I see it, then? – JustinStolle Apr 9 '11 at 6:01
@Justing: I think this would be useful. – Yasir Arsanukaev Apr 9 '11 at 23:25
current the TAG APEX is still ambiguous. I see now ONE new question with APEX-CODE for its tag. Seems an improvement but it feels lonely. is someone going to switcheroo? – Warren in Toronto Apr 19 '11 at 16:40

For the questions related to the following two products of http://www.salesforce.com:

  • Apex Code – a strongly-typed programming language that executes on the Force.com platform.
  • Visualforce – a complete component-based framework for building and deploying custom user interfaces on Force.com.

I'm suggesting the two appropriate tags:

The former is not used. The latter is already used by a number of questions.

I'm also suggesting to get rid of completely, and already explained it here "Banned tags facility".

As there's already , I feel that it's a good idea to use it in combination with one of the above or either tags.

This way the products of two companies obviously don't overlap.

I had the same idea about tag names. – Yasir Arsanukaev Dec 22 '10 at 17:49
Apex-code is currently being used in ONE question. Should probably use that tag, as it's closer to the actual name used by the vendor (Apex-code). – Warren in Toronto Apr 19 '11 at 16:41
