Apache Apex is part of Apache Bigtop.
Bigtop CI based distribution binaries
Following is an option to install the Bigtop stack for Apache Hadoop along with Apex.

Updating Apex version in Bigtop
As of Apex 3.6.0 Bigtop requires a patch to compile Apex with Hadoop 2.7.x.
This is due to a backward incompatible change in Hadoop between 2.6.x (against which Apex is released) and 2.7.x (that Bigtop currently uses). The patch may need to be updated when the Apex version is changed.
Building the Apex component locally is easy thanks to Docker!
The resulting package will be
/ws/output/apex/apex_3.6.0-1_all.deb and to check what's in it run:
dpkg -c /ws/output/apex/apex_3.6.0-1_all.deb
