Oracle APEX 3.2 Released

Oracle has announced the general availability of Oracle APEX 3.2.  In addition, they have re-vamped the APEX home page (http://apex.oracle.com) with a cleaner look than the previous version.

There seems to be a number of security features in addition to the Forms Conversion features that have been discussed for some time.

Hi Scott,

Is there an upgrade version available from 3.1.2 to 3.2?

Thanks

Scott said...

Sure - if you download APEX 3.2 from OTN and install it on top or 3.1.x, it will upgrade it automatically.

Thanks,

Thanks Scott. I successfully managed to upgrade from 3.1.2 to 3.2 by following the steps in the installation guide.

Hi Scott,

Do you know if Apex 4.0 will have support for primary keys based on more than two columns? Also, if not, is there are workaround for this short of redesigning the table to use a primary key based on a SID? This is a major potential problem for us since we want migrate a legacy system to Apex.

Thanks In Advance

Paul

Paul,

I don't know if it will, and if I had to guess, would say no.

You can use commas in the two fields to "hack" it and have more than two values as an alternative.

You may want to post this query on the OTN Forum, as it will get a much broader audience - including the APEX development team - there.

Thanks,

How to proceed importing sql script

We are currently on 3.1.0.0032

Thanks!

Dan,

You'll have to upgrade to 3.2, as APEX is not backward-compatible.

Thanks,
