    Dear Sir,

    I don't have CSI (Customer Support Identifier) How to get "Patch Set Bundle for Oracle APEX 20.1 (30990551)" ?

    If I purchase Oracle Database Personal Edition on Oracle Store (link below) Can I get CSI for download this patch?

    Best regards,

    Bansak.

    First I can't speak for Oracle, my experience to your question is YES: I have Oracle Database Personal Edition Support Contract and I am able to download this patch. HTH

    Hi Pravin,

    Yes.  You can upgrade directly to the latest version of APEX.  No need for you to install all of the interim versions.

    Again, I only speak for my own experience.

    Our company used to use Oracle EE for ERP, 7 years ago we migrated to another ERP system which uses different database and we discontinued Oracle license, 3 years ago I found a couple of my small applications still need Oracle patches so I decided to buy Oracle Database Personal Edition at price like $470( first year)+$150 ( for 1st year support)= $620 /1st year , subsequent years the contract renewal for about  $150/Yr, very good price. The CSI support# enables me access to support.oracle.com to download patches, new DB software AND request support, one time I even got great support on 365 email integration with Apex by none other than  Apex director Joel Kallman himself, who sent me a patch personally and I was  grateful for that.  OK, I am detouring too much, back to your answer I'd  say, only current year=$620; 2years support+current year=$770... HTH

    Hi apex team! Congrats and good job for all new features of this release, but it has a very urgent bug thats makes it unusable, we are having lots and random issues because of it after upgrading to latest version with last available patchset installed (30990551). It doesn't behave properly with varchar2 extended mode activated. I read in release notes that this bug is suposed to be fixed, but it isn't.

    Apex 20.1 release notes fixes bugs:

    30589770FORM REGION INIT PROCESS THROWS ORA-06502 WITH MAX_STRING_SIZE=EXTENDED AND VARCHAR2 VALUES > 4000 BYTE

    Any report or process that produces varchar2 > 4000 fails with ORA-06502. If you debug the process or query in sql developer, it works nicely, in apex fails. I tested it in apex workapaces, but I don't know if this instance has extended mode active:

    https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/pcat_test/r/test-varchar2-4000-bug/test-bug-varchar2-4000

    Any workarounds? Is it possible that installing the patchset this bug returns and with standsrd install is correct? I can't check it. Thanks for your work.
