SQL Developer/APEX Listener Bug and The Power of Social Networking in Action

Have you installed or recently upgraded to Oracle APEX Listener 2.0? Have you used SQL Developer 3.2 to manage APEX Listener settings? If you answered yes to both questions then you are in for an unwelcome surprise.

The surprise is that you’ll get a “500 – Internal Server Error” whenever you upload a file via any of your APEX apps or import files via the APEX Application Builder.

Kris Rice responded to my tweet almost immediately.

The problem was a bug in the way SQL Developer uploads APEX Listener settings to the server.

This Oracle forum post describes how to reproduce the bug and the workaround to fix it.

Kris quickly put a fix together and checked it in for the next patch.
