After a longer development cycle than usual, Oracle Application Express 5.0 is finally available for download! I think it was worth the wait. It comes with a ton of features, here are just a few marquee features.
- Page Designer
- Universal Theme
- Modal Dialogs
- Interactive Report Enhancements
- New Calendar component
- Flexible Workspace Authentication
- many more smaller features
Check out our newly designed apex.oracle.com to download the new release and try it out with your own applications!
As in the past, your existing applications should work as before without having to make any modifications. But please read the Change of Behavior, Deprecated and Desupported chapters in our Release Notes before you immediately upgrade your production system! 😉
In addition, the Installation Guide has slightly changed, especially to Configure Static File Support. Please read and follow it carefully!
Thanks again for all the testing and feedback provided on our three Early Adopter releases. It was invaluable for us to release an as stable product as possible!
But now it’s time to download it and test it on your own system! Have fun!
