EBS Challenge
John Piwowar wrote the first part of the EBS Installation Guide back in December, since then, it's become a runaway success. I hadn't realized how so until recently when I was looking at Google Analytics and it came it at number 19, for all time. Now it's up to 13 and with the addition of it to the front page, it should only go up faster.

Oracle Application Express 4.0 EA2 live

A few hours after my previous post, APEX 4.0 EA2 hit the air.

The url to this new version of APEX 4.0 is still the same:

Application Express 4.0 - Early Adopter 2 Now Available

If you didn’t already see the news, the EA2 release of APEX4.0 has just been opened up.
Head over to, sign up for a workspace and try out all the cool new features.
EA2 includes the following key features -

Websheets (this will be huge!)
New collection enhancements
Tree region
Debugging has been rewritten

and many more (see [...]

Apex EA2 update

To see the new style Plugins use this link to the Plugins Application provided by Patrick Wolf:

Plugins Application

I've managed to copy the syntax used in some of these plugins to update those on my Online Store demo.

Apex EA2 is now available

The good news is that it appears that applications exported from Early Adopter Phase 1 import ok in the new EA2.

The bad news is that plugins have had a bit of an overhaul. It looks like the PL/SQL code used to construct a plugin now uses functions rather than procedures. So back to the drawing board for some of my online store demo plugins!

Can anyone from the team shed some light on what I do with 'apex_plugin.t_page_item_render_result' or 'apex_plugin.t_page_item_validation_result', please?

Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter Phase II is available

The second phase of the Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter is now available. A new instance with the latest build of Application Express 4.0 is now available on

Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter Phase II (EA2) Available

The Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter Phase II (EA2) is now available. Like EA1, this instance is running on Amazon EC2. The beauty of Amazon's elastic IP feature is that we could work on the EA2 instance and get it completely ready, then associate the elastic IP with the new instance, making the switch in less than 60 seconds.

APEX 4.0 EA2 (with Websheets) very very close...

The APEX Development likes to hint and build up our expectations ;-)
