Thursday, February 28, 2008 upgraded to Application Express 3.1

Yesterday, February 27, the hosted demonstration instance of Oracle Application Express at was upgraded to Application Express 3.1. This is one of the last milestones in the release criteria for Application Express. If we can successfully upgrade an instance with over 11,000 workspaces and over 30,000 applications, this usually bodes well for the product release.

It's an incredibly valuable learning experience running and managing There's nothing like using your own software.

There were over 1,100 participants in the hosted Early Adopter's release of Application Express 3.1. The feedback was invaluable, from comments to suggestions to bug reports. The Application Express community has my gratitude.

That is awesome!! Due to constraints (priorities) outside of my control, we have been ready to upgrade from 2.0 to 3.0 since last fall. Now if these external constraints/priorities are in place a little longer, I will be able to cancel the upgrade to 3.0 and ask that the upgrade be to 3.1!!

Thanks for the timely information. Get ready for all the "Are we there yet Daddy?", bleeding-edge ApEx developers asking for a release date.

FYI: I noticed your blog entry on
