Well, I eventually got around to it and have APEX running on my Macbookpro with 10GR2.
Very nice. Building up an apex application is neat when you can do it where I live.

This leaves my dev environment all set up on mac now with:
  1. SQLDeveloper 1.5.4
  2. Apex 3.2
  3. Oracle 10gr2
  4. and Java with Eclipse :)
So, ok, whats weird or unusual about this setup you ask? Speed. The database and apex responses are instant on the macbook pro, and when I'm done I can export the app and deploy it on to share it with other folks.

According to note 742060.1, platform Apple Macintosh PowerPC is obsolete. Or are you running some kind of pseudo-os in a virtual machine ?

or do you have an Intel Architecture? in this case, which version did you chose?

I used to believe that MacOSX was not a platform of choice for database development, waiting for your comment :)

Since Barry has an email address, and appears to be on the SQL Developer team, I'm guessing he has an inside track to an internal beta. ;-)

Perhaps there is still hope for us grubby Mac users!

Seriously, I thought that 11g was going to be the 1st Intel Oracle Database version for MacOS X!

Please tell me that there's hope for us Mac users!
