    The APEX Listener specific Microsoft Excel data upload feature (via request xls2collection) is currently not supported on Application Express 4.2.3. Attempts to upload a file and have it parsed and inserted into a collection result in:

  • 17469441 - LINKS AND BRANCHES WITH REQUEST BRANCH_TO_PAGE_ACCEPT DO NOT SET SESSION STATE
    When passing items via report links and branches that have a request parameter of BRANCH_TO_PAGE_ACCEPT, the item values in the database will not be properly updated. This issue also affects a few parts of the Application Express Builder development environment, where BRANCH_TO_PAGE_ACCEPT is used:
    • "Search Application" will show an empty results page, without actually performing a search. As a workaround, developers can perform the search again on the results page.
    • "Run" links on the application page report may run a page that was previously visited. As a workaround, developers can edit the page and click "Run" there.
    Solution: There is a patchset exception for this available on My Oracle Support - search by bug number.

    When using the jQuery Smartphone user interface, if the home page is a public page (No authentication required) and other jQuery Smartphone pages require Single Sign-On then when you navigate to a page that require authentication the screen will go blank.
    Solution: Update the jQuery Smartphone Home Page to require authentication.
