Oracle APEX 5.1.4 and ORDS 17.4 upgrade
Weblogic 10.3.6 and ORDS 17.4
Webserver and ORDS JAVA compatibility issue
This popped out during our ORACLE APEX 5.1.4 upgrade.
We were running WebLogic 10.3.6 and Oracle APEX 5.1.2 doing upgrade to latest version of ORDS and APEX (ORDS 17.4 and APEX 5.1.4)
APEX upgrade as such was smooth but on ORDS restart we got an error:
Problem was in JAVA version that was running on our WebLogic Server -> JAVA version 7(
jdk1.7.0_25) was not supported by ORDS.
More info here.
- Downgrade to use ORDS 17.3
- Upgrade your WebLogic with JDK 1.8
- Upgrade your WebLogic to 12c
We decided (for now) to go with ORDS 17.3 and APEX was up and running again.
