Getting APEX version number from data dictionary
July 16, 2013 2 Comments
Environment: Oracle 10gR2, Oracle 11gR2, APEX 4.2.2.00.11
If you don’t have access to the development environment, and you need to find the version of APEX installed into your system, there are several ways to do that:
1) Query APEX_RELEASE
APEX_RELEASE is a public view which is present in each APEX schema.
To query the current enabled version:
SELECT VERSION_NO FROM APEX_RELEASE;
To query other installed versions of APEX:
SELECT VERSION_NO FROM APEX_040100.APEX_RELEASE;
2) Query DBA_REGISTRY
The DBA_REGISTRY keeps track of all components installed into the database.
SELECT VERSION FROM DBA_REGISTRY WHERE COMP_NAME = ‘Oracle Application Express’;
