Oracle Application Express 5.0 Early Adopter 2 now available!

Just in time for the ever-awesome ODTUG KScope 14 conference...we are happy to announce the availability of Oracle Application Express 5.0 Early Adopter 2.  The response from Early Adopter 1 was overwhelming (with over 4,000 participants), and we look forward to the same great contributions from the APEX community for Early Adopter 2.  You can access the Early Adopter 2 at

As before, the authentication for Oracle Application Express requires an Oracle account.  This is the same account you would use for many Oracle sites, including the OTN Community discussion forums.  If you don't have an account, then simply follow the instructions on the login page to "Sign up for a free Oracle Web account".  However, ensure that you specify the same email address as your Oracle Web account when requesting a new workspace.

The Known Issues will be populated soon, as well the application to review your submitted feedback.  Our team has made tremendous strides since Early Adopter 1, and we continue to believe that APEX 5.0 will become a watershed release for APEX and the community.

Thank you for all of your support.

Thanks for reporting this. A direct grant on a SYS object was removed, for whatever reason, as a part of the patch set installation. I restored it. We'll research this further.

Thanks again.
