Ok, i have read many issues about this problem. So i downloaded the latest version of APEX listener 2.0 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex-listener/downloads/index.html
Also, I have APEX 4.2. I followed the steps exactly as mentioned at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37097_01/doc/install.42/e35123/otn_install.htm#BABJJAGF, then those from http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37099_01/doc/doc.20/e25066/toc.htm to configure the listener.
I have created a folder 'config' in D:\oracle\app\apex-listener, and I specified D:\oracle\app\apex-listener\config as listener configuration location. Ok, first time i have started the listener, it asked me to specify the port, host, password for some users, so the configuration it's ok, i should not run /listenerConfigure again.
Ok, i have started the listener in the following way:
D:\oracle\app\apex-listener>java -Dapex.images=D:\oracle\app\apex\images -jar ap
ex.war
and the output is:
D:\oracle\app\apex-listener>java -Dapex.images=D:\oracle\app\apex\images -jar ap
ex.war

When i run http://localhost:8080/apex/apex_admin, the page is blank. I don't know why, and what is wrong, because that 'images' directory exists and it's in right place.


Thanks.

    Hello Roger,
    Nevermind, i deployed with Glassfish and it's ok. That standalone mode is a big bulls**t
    I don't agree on that. Did you know that actually following the Installation Guide you've quoted would result in a working instance?
    D:\oracle\app\apex-listener>java -Dapex.images=D:\oracle\app\apex\images -jar apex.war
    ... would have been appropriate for APEX Listener up to 1.1, but not for APEX Listener 2 you are using. The corresponding call for APEX Listener 2 would be
    java -jar apex.war standalone --apex-images D:\oracle\app\apex\images
    Perhaps you want to give it another try some day, e. g. when you need a testing instance... Until then, I hope you'll have fun with your instance on GlassFish.

    -Udo
