Updating apex.oracle.com Side-effects

As Joel Kallman posted apex.oracle.com upgraded to APEX 4.0, version 4.0.0.00.46. To do this we ran a one-off patch on apex.oracle.com.

This patch caused the Websheet Data Grids and Reports to be lost.
Therefore, if you had defined a Data Grid or SQL Report previously, you will need to recreate them. This information can't be recovered.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Rest assured that this was caused by the one-off patch and will have no impact on the APEX 4.0 Production Release once available, or any future patches or releases.

Cheers,
David

Hi David, can you please tell me the number of the oneoff patches? Mike Hichwa mentioned in his blog that there are already a couple of them avaliable at support.oracle.com but right now searching by name does not provide any answers...
We plan to migrate our production environment from 3.2.1 to 4.0 in 2 weeks and that would help a lot.
Thanx.

Ygor,

Please review this page: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/application_express/html/4.0_known_issues.html

Which lists the known issues and specifies if a special patch exception is available.
You then need to search on the specific bug number.

Regards,
David
