I have setup an oracle database in my Ubuntu machine. Now I have took the following steps to create tables

1) login to my ubuntu account

2) su oracle

3) sqlplus "sys as sysdba" //Connected to an idle instance

4) sql prompt sql>startup

Connected to:
Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Advanced Analytics and Real Application Testing options

5) in sql prompt.. sql> exec dbms_xdb_config.sethttpport(8080);

6) sql> exit

7)lsnrctl start

Then I have login to oracle apex in a workspace which I created earlier and created a table named person

but when I again login to to sqlplus like sqlplus "sys as sysdba" and run the following query

select * from person It says , no table created.

I am a newbie in database , so please tell me how do I access the tables I have created in apex , from sqlplus console ? It used to be so simple in 10g.

Table person is situated in schema assigned to your apex workspace. You can go to APEX IDE to the section SQL Workshop -> Object Browser, schema name will be displayed in the top right part of the page. Or you can execute query:

select owner from all_tables
where table_name = 'PERSON';

You will get names of all users that have table with such name. After that you need to use this name in your query:

select * from schema_name.person
