apx files are add-ons (plug-ins) for ArchiCAD programmed in C++ using the API Developer Kit.

More information on getting started - including required tools - is here:
http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=36448

and here:
http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=27340

and some slightly out-of-date details are here:
http://www.archicadwiki.com/Developer/Getting%20Started%20with%20the%20API%20DevKit

You may not see the code for Roofmaker or any other production add-ons from Graphisoft - the code is proprietary. However, the API DevKit comes with a fairly large library of sample add-ons (each demonstrating some basic techniques) to help people get started.
