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.
@eddieawad Fixed checked in for the patch.In the meantime, just remove that line in the config— krisrice (@krisrice) December 27, 2012
@eddieawad Now it’ll just put a log entry saying bad config param for anything non-numeric in that spot and ignore empty values— krisrice (@krisrice) December 27, 2012

An external or internal application wants to send inbound data to your Oracle database, like for example a purchase order or a receivable invoice. You want to consume this data in real time.
The version of your Oracle database is 11gR2 or above. The only “tool” you have is the Oracle database, i.e. you do not have any middleware (like SOA suite) installed. The external or internal application can connect to your Oracle database.
The following is a fully functional example of the solution, starting from creating a new database user and ending with consuming the message in the database.Comments Off | Filed in Oracle | Tags: AQ, dbms_scheduler

One of the world’s largest technology conferences is going to start shortly. Oracle OpenWorld 2012 will officially kick off this Sunday, September 30. I will be attending and hope to see you there.
Last year’s event hosted more than 45,000 registered attendees from 117 countries. With eight new acquisitions so far this year, I expect the 2012 event to be even bigger, more than 50,000 attendees and 2,000 sessions.Comments Off | Filed in Oracle | Tags: oow
