Test Drive Oracle APEX 4.0 Early Adopter!

It’s here! Oracle Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter is available at http://tryapexnow.com/ hosted on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. We are really looking forward for your feedback! I’m especially interested in the new tree, plug-ins, Advisor, Application Search, Required Flag, Sub Regions, Textfield with autocomplete, Rich Text Editor, … just to name a few : -)

Stay tuned for more information. Also check out Joel’s and David’s blog posting for additional information.

Oh, by the way. Check out my Plug-in Sample Application which contains many plug-ins I have written. It should give you an idea how the plug-in code should look like. “Get Data” for example is a more complicated one, but get started with “Masked Text Field” first. I try to post some tutorials soon.

  1. Thanks Patrick – have installed your Plug-in Sample App. but just wondering how do I get to you “Get Data” and “Masked Text Field” plug-ins?


  2. I played a bit with the new tree view and I must admit I’m becoming a huge fan!
    I think the things you name above are all good to write higher quality applications.

    Well done!

    Thanks so much Patrick,

  3. The tree view is awesome. Just diving into your PlugIn sample app. Cool stuff!!
    It will be a really interesting holiday – I hope the rest of my household will agree… 😉

  7. Hi,

    The websheets functionality is not working yet. Wish I could see more of them.

    Reported with the feedback form some compatibility issues with the cyrillic in APEX 4.

    All else provides ground for thinking that this is a major, major update with tons of new tools.


  8. Having trouble getting access to to the site, how long did it take everyone to get an account?

  10. Hi Patrick,

    Great website!

    I’ve noticed that APEX does not support synonyms when using in-built master detail forms or ‘Form and reports’ in the wizards in 3.1. You can only use tables or views which makes generic applications difficult as a hard coded schema reference is required. Do you know if there is a fix in 4.0?



  11. Hi Ben,

    can you please provide that feedback on the EA instance. So that it goes through our official channels.
