Oracle APEX 19.1 Early Adopter Now Available!

Joel Kallman
Senior Director, Software Development

The Early Adopter program for Oracle APEX 19.1 is now available, and it's open to everyone!  The URL to access it is:

https://apexea.oracle.com

Prior to every major release of Oracle APEX, we conduct a hosted Early Adopter (EA) program.  This is similar to a hosted beta, and everyone is welcome to participate and provide feedback.  It's a great opportunity for the community to participate in the release process of APEX.  We welcome your feedback about features, user interface, bugs, functionality, and more.  Ultimately, it is your feedback which helps us shape Oracle APEX into a high-quality, polished framework.

 

There are some exciting new features in this release, including:

  • REST Enabled Forms
  • Data Loading Wizard
  • Dark Mode for the App Builder
  • PL/SQL API for Data Loading & Parsing (APEX_DATA_PARSER)
  • Oracle JET and jQuery Library Upgrades
  • JET Chart and Interactive Grid enhancements
  • and much more... 

 

A few things to keep in mind:

  1. This is hosted only.  We do not make early releases of APEX available for on-premises installation.
     
  2. Everything you do on the Early Adopter instances of APEX should be considered throw-away.  There is no guarantee that APEX applications you build in the Early Adopter instance will even be installable in the production release of Oracle Application Express. 

If you're reading this blog post after APEX 19.1 is released, you will find that the Early Adopter at https://apexea.oracle.com is no longer available.

We look forward to your feedback.  And thanks for being such strong supporters of Oracle APEX.  Our community is magnificent!
