Are you up to speed on Oracle Application Express 4.2?

Here's what to know:

Oracle Application Express (aka: APEX) release 4.2 is installed by default in Oracle Database 12c. When you install Oracle Database 12c Multitenant Architecture, APEX is installed into the multitenant container database by default. 

An interesting bit of trivia to impress your friends:

A single multitenant container database can have up to 252 pluggable databases (PDBs). 

A cool feature of APEX 4.2:

APEX can be removed from the multitenant container database and re-installed locally into a single pluggable database. So a single Oracle Database 12c Multitenant Architecture can run different versions of APEX in each PDB.

What's new:

APEX 4.2.3 was released on September 16th, 2013. It is a cumulative patch set for APEX 4.2, 4.2.1 and 4.2.2.  You can get it here.

Ready to learn more:
