Dirt Cheap Oracle step #6 of 6: Migrate the Apex applications

Dirt Cheap Oracle step #6 of 6: Migrate the Apex applications

[Full Article]


  1. Hi Jeffrey,
    If we are importing the workspace from linux to windows...do we save in unix format or in dos format?

    set feedback off
    -- Workspace, user group and user export

    wwv_flow_security.g_security_group_id := 3229827236987098;
    -- W O R K S P A C E
    -- Creating a workspace will not create database schemas or objects.
    -- This API will cause only meta data inserts.
    prompt Creating workspace LIBRARY_WS...

    What problem are you having? Are you getting an error message when you export or import a workspace?
