    Classic Applications are the initial implementation of applications in Visual Builder, which at the time was called Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS). This application model was very simplistic and allowed for easy creation of basic apps with a very rigid application model. Although it was very easy for non-developers to quickly put apps together, it was very limiting in terms of capability, and so as a result, due to the need for more flexibility, a new application model was introduced, called Visual Applications.

    Visual Applications are much more flexible in terms of capability, but now require a bit more technical savvy to create them. The developer persona shifts from a business developer to a more advanced developer that requires more coding. Having said that, with Oracle Digital Customer Service, using the reference implementation template to start your app, you will get a functional application out of the box as a great starting point, and you can inspect how it was created, what code it contains, and you can brand it, extend it, and tailor it to your needs.
