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

The following questions both have the same tag :

    Should I change apex tags to oracle-apex when I see it, then? Apr 9, 2011 at 6:01
  • @Justing: I think this would be useful. Apr 9, 2011 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? Apr 19, 2011 at 16:40

I'm not a subject expert, but as far as tags go, it sounds like they should be disambiguated into something like (there is already which should also be removed), and .

  • 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). Apr 19, 2011 at 16:41

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.
