Oracle APEX 4.0 Early Adopter Release 3 available! has just been updated with Oracle APEX 4.0 Early Adopter Release 3. Have a look!

We are now feature complete and appreciate any help testing all those features. A detailed list with the new features should be available soon. For plug-ins I have extended the apex_plugin_util package with additional useful functions. Check them out! They will make your life a lot easier and improve the quality and security of your plug-ins.

Note: For those who had a workspace on the EA2 machine, you will have to sign up for a new workspace. Your existing applications on EA2 will be available for some time so that you can copy them over.

  1. Great to hear. Do you have a few examples on what is new exactly in EA3…

  2. I noticed that the checkbox tree is no longer available. Is this permanent or will it be added later?

  3. Hi Patrick,

    Any chance you can supply us with a list of what has changed vs Early Adapter 2?

  5. Hopefully the New Features IR application will be updated soon?


    I just looked for features with milestone = EA3, but didn’t find any.

    I’m also wishing I had time to check it out. I really want to, but work’s swamped!

  6. Do you now any date for the final release?
    (I hope that will be before Oracle OpenWorld)

  7. I think it’s save to say that it will be available before OOW.

  8. Hi Patrick,

    I am Oracle user, I have metalink account, I have question about Apex and Oracle relationship.

    1. Is that correct that Apex is not part of Metalink support, I can’t find any doc related to Apex there?

    2. During the test I found few bug which seems like APEX @ OTN forum users have same problem, how do we file this bug?

    Thank you.

  9. Hi Sinardy,

    you get support for Oracle APEX through Metalink. If you have a licensed Oracle Database you will get support for APEX as well, because it’s a no-cost option of the database.

    About reporting bugs, the best would be to go through Oracle Support, but you can post them on the OTN forum as well. The APEX development team is monitoring the forum. It helps if you provide a test case to make it easier to replicate the problem.
