        It should be embarrassing for Oracle!

        They can't even keep their own database running :(

          I know! And, it's always when I'm desperate to use my apps :(

            I wonder whether Oracle is doing this intentionally! Quite a few people run their production apps on Apex. Might be Oracle signalling them to move the apps elsewhere?

            Otherwise just to have Apex up & running is child's play for Oracle.

              I hope it's not intentional! Nobody should be running production stuff in there, though - it's part of the T&C's.

              They do seem to have issues, though - remember last year when this forum kept breaking down for weeks after a software upgrade?

                Hello,
                They do seem to have issues, though - remember last year when this forum kept breaking down for weeks after a software upgrade?
                I wouldn't draw any correlation between the OTN forums and the apex.oracle.com service. They are completely independent (other than this particular forum relates to APEX of course). So some downtime in one area does not necessarily reflect on the other.

                Also, I do find it very 'amusing' (perhaps not the right word) that the apex.oracle.com site is free to use (for non-production use) and typically has amazing uptime and support (via these forums) and yet the moment there is some downtime (some) people react like they are actually paying money for the service and that the SLA has been breached.

                I'm sure the machine will be back up shortly...just be patient and trusting....

                Just my thoughts,

                John.

                  Sorry, John - that's just sheer frustration on my part. I've not been in my office all week, so my apex.oracle.com OTN workspace is the only instance of Apex that I have access to in order to help posters with their questions - and it's gone down twice :(

                  And, I couldn't resist another dig at the forum software "issue" last year that lasted several weeks - which was way more irritating than not having access to my OTN workspace for a couple of days.

                    While I fully agree with this, but even free Apex is a good marketing tool for Oracle.

                    Apex was originally developed as Oracle wanted to appear as an alternative web platform as people mostly adopt PHP + MYSQL for default web development platform.

                    Although I don't run live apps in Apex, I do perform all my R&D here before moving to my production server. So, although I'm not losing revenue for non-availability of Apex, it is still a disappointment.

                    When people shout about when even a free service becomes unavailable, it means the service means a lot to all these users - what exactly Oracle wanted, to create a cult for Apex users!

                    :)

                      Hi,

                      I totally agree that it is a good marketing tool - in fact, I would suggest that, for a software company, it's the best sort of marketing tool they could have. Try-before-you-buy! I haven't looked, but does any other software company offer something similar?

                      I also agree that it means a lot to developers to have this facility - I couldn't even begin to count the number of times someone's asked me to login to their workspace to look at an issue. It's also useful when the new versions come out so that I can try them before suggesting an upgrade at work.

                      Anyway, I don't want to go on and I certainly don't want to upset Oracle :D

                                Hi Scott,

                                I take it back - it's working 50% of the time. The rest of the time, I get "connection reset", "cannot display the webpage" and even "Internal server error" (when trying to perform a sql statement on APEX_WORKSPACE_ACTIVITY_LOG. It's taking several attempts to Apply Changes anywhere within an app.

                                Can you please ask for someone to have another look at this, thanks

                                  Hi Scott,

                                  Can someone please take another look at this. The site is extremely, painfully, slow today. It can take forever to load a page (if it loads at all). Below is some output from FireBug from just attempting to open a page in an app

                                  Thanks

                                    Andy,

                                    I sent a message to a colleague in our IT organization tonight, and he said this was a known issue and was still not 100% resolved. He stated that it was a performance issue with our filer which our internal operations team was diagnosing the reasons for the high CPU load on the filer.

                                    Thanks for reporting this (again).

                                    Joel
