APEX patch 2.2.1

A patch for Oracle Application Express 2.2 is released on the 14th of September.

This release fixes several issues in Application Express 2.2, you find the details below. The full installation of Application Express 2.2.1 can be downloaded from the OTN Site. The Application Express 2.2.1 patch set, to be applied to an Application Express 2.2 instance, can be downloaded from MetaLink (Patch Number 5500033) and is about 2.6MB.

To install the patch:
- sqlplus "sys/syspass as sysdba" @apxpatch.sql
- Copy the images/javascript/htmldb_html_elements.js file to the images/javascript directory used for Application Express. The version of htmldb_html_elements.js included in the patch set should overwrite the existing file.

It took me less than two minutes
to apply the patch and it worked great :-)

If you're working with Application Express 2.2 and XE, you should read this.
