Friday afternoon – updating Oracle XE

1

I had nothing really to do this afternoon, so i updated Oracle XE (10.2.0.1 Beta) with the Oracle (standard database) patch 10.2.0.2, that is…only the data dictionary part.

Just to check if this could be done and if some limitations were data dictionary based… ;-)

Alas?

SQL> sho user
USER is "SYS"

SQL> select * from v$version;

14 objects were invalid afterwards and a lot of synonyms, probably APEX / HTMLDB related.
