Having used Oracle APEX since its first appearance on the Early Adopter Platform I finally got my hands on the real thing and installed in on my test-system.
This Post tries to give you a summary of the big changes in Oracle APEX 4.2 (compared to 4.1.1) from a datamodel/view/API Point of view.
If you are coming from APEX 4.0 (or older) read the Posts about the differences in Oracle APEX 4.1 and the Patchset 4.1.1 at first.
A couple of days ago the first Patchset for APEX 4.1 was released: APEX 4.1.1.
Read all about the Patchset, Download Options and more in the Blog Posts of Roel, Patrick, Mike, Dimitri and many others. Or simply go to APEX on OTN.
After i downloaded and installed (flawless, thanks for that guys and girls!) APEX 4.1.1 i compared it with APEX 4.1 to see what has changed (besides the obvious).
Mark Sewtz just revealed a secret: Oracle APEX already contains more support for mobile Applications as expected.
I had to try it out and see what’s new.
We all read the blogpostings about what features were added in Oracle APEX 4.1, like the ones here, here, here and here.
But what does that mean on a more technical level? Which Views have changed, which API’s have changed?
Inspired by the Webinar over here I thought i’ll give the redgate Schema Compare Tool a try.
