Apex 4.1.1 Patch Notes documentation error?

Hi there,

In the Application Express 4.1.1 Patch Set Notes (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex/application-express/411-patchset-notes-1528994.html) it states in the Patch Set Overview section:

"When determining whether or not to install this patch set, consider the following rules:

1.If you have Oracle Application Express release 4.1 installed, download the Oracle Application Express 4.1.1 patch set and apply it. To obtain the patch go to My Oracle Support and search for patch number 13331096.

2.If you have Oracle Application Express release 4.0 or earlier installed (including Oracle HTML DB release 1.5), download and install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.1.1 release from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).

3.If you do not have Oracle Application Express installed, download and install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.1.1 release from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN)."

My questions are:

Should points 2 & 3 say "download and install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.1 release" (i.e. four point one), instead of download and "install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.1.1 release" (i.e. four point one point one).

If the Patch Notes are correct then where is the full 4.1.1 release? On the Apex download page only the 4.1.1 patch set and the 4.1 full release is available.

Why produce a full 4.1.1 release and a patch set release? Why not just a full release?

I am convinced this is a documentation error (that should be corrected), and that in order to upgrade from Apex 4.0 to 4.1.1, I must first install 4.1 and then install 4.1.1 on top of it, and that there a full 4.1.1 release does not exist. If not, can anyone tell me why not?

Thanks.

John.

P.S.

Just remembered seeing this in the 4.1.1 announcement

"Oracle Application Express 4.1.1 is now available for download. Please visit our OTN Home Page. To upgrade an existing Release 4.1 installation you will need to get the patch script p13331096_11202_GENERIC.zip from My Oracle Support.

If you encounter bugs or issues please post in this forum or contact Oracle Support.

Regards,
APEX Development Team "

Does this mean that the 4.1.1 download available from "http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex/downloads/index.html" is the full release? If so, where is the Installation Guide with it, or should I follow the installation guide for 4.1?

    Hi,

    yes the version provided on OTN is a full release and you can use the 4.1 installation instructions to install it.

    I will inform our Product Manager to make this more obvious.

    Regards
    Patrick
