JDeveloper 10.1.3 Applications Deployed in the Oracle Application Server 10.1.2

We get some questions about the certification of applications developed in JDeveloper 10.1.3 and deployed in the Oracle Application Server 10.1.2

We have a certification matrix published on OTN, in document "Application Servers Supported by JDeveloper".
You can see there that this combination is certified but under the following conditions:

A. For all applications, you need to reconfigure
your applications to use J2SE 1.4.2 and J2EE 1.3. See the JDeveloper documentation
for complete instructions.


B. For ADF applications only, you need to
install the ADF runtime libraries, using the ADF Runtime Installer. To start
the Installer, select Tools | ADF Runtime Installer from the main menu in JDeveloper.
Instructions for running the installer are in the JDeveloper online documentation,
or click Help in the Installer.


Point B is a common administrative task for most ADF Developers and should be rather obvious for them. If not, you can check document "How To Update Oracle ADF Runtime Libraries to Oracle Application Server 10g". See also my previous blog post about the Stand-alone installer.

Concerning point A, people are wondering what are these "complete instructions". You can find them under online help topic "Deploying ADF Applications".
Read more specifically, "Oracle Application Server Release 2 (10.1.2) Deployment Notes" and "Deploying to Application Servers That Support JDK 1.4".
You'll find all instructions there.

Comments:

It's just a shame that you can only upgrade the ADF Runtime components for the entire 10.1.2 application server. I don't want to upgrade ADF for my existing 10.1.2 UIX applications. It would be so nice if you could only upgrade ADF for a single OC4J container. According to support this is not possible :-( So, we ended up with a whole new 10.1.3 application server besides the existing 10.1.2.

Hi Wilfred,

I completely agree with you. We have a lot of customers who already complained about it and transferred their feedback to development and product management.
I hope they'll remove this restriction, but I'm not envolved in the decision process.
We (support engineers) are also impacted by this as we support various combinations of JDeveloper <-> iAS - see the Certification Matrix.

Technically speaking, this is possible.
I have customers running different applications with different ADF Runtime Libraries installed per OC4J instance in their development environment iAS 10.1.2
You need to adapt the application.xml from your OC4J instance manually to point to another set of libraries.
NB: I'm speaking here about iAS 10.1.2 as things are different in iAS 10.1.3 where that may impact other OC4J instances because of the shared libraries.

However, these combinations are not part of the testings used to certify the products, and hence are not supported.

Regards,

Didier.
