Downloading Windows JDeveloper For Fusion Apps

In past blog posts we have explained that Fusion Applications developers working on ADF customizations and extensions for on premise installations should download JDeveloper from eDelivery.   Oracle announced recently that as of June 1, 2015, Fusion Applications will no longer be built for the Windows Server platform (see support note 2017267.1).  If you look on eDelivery, you will consequently no longer find the Windows platform as a choice:

This has raised the question: if I develop customizations with JDeveloper on Windows, how do I get the tools?  The answer is pretty simply: the JDeveloper and Companion "disks" have always been identical (platform-independent) for every platform.  Just pick another platform (for example, Linux) and download the zip files.

In this case the Windows installer is included in Disk 1 of 3:

Please note that Release 8 is currently the latest version generally available for on premises customers.

New Whitepaper: Building a Custom Fusion Application

If you have an on-premises deployment of Fusion Applications and wish to extend it with your own custom application, Vik has created this whitepaper to guide you through the development steps. This simple walk-through includes:

  • Task overview and recommended naming standards
  • Registering via the applications taxonomy
  • Creating the application in JDeveloper using ADF
  • Using application-specific components like lookups and messages
  • Your options for deployment and integration

We hope you find it useful, and please feel free to leave your feedback in the comments section below.

Fusion Concepts: Lookups

Lookups in applications are used to represent a set of codes and their translated meanings. For example, a product team might store the values 'Y' and 'N' in a column in a table, but when displaying those values they would want to display "Yes" or "No" (or their translated equivalents) instead. Each set of related codes is identified as a lookup type.

Lookups are codes that are defined in the global FND_LOOKUP_VALUES table, which is striped into multiple virtual tables using a VIEW_APPLICATION_ID column. Every product team who owns the lookups specific to their product provides a database view and ADFbc artifacts built on the top of the database view.

Fusion Concepts: FND_MESSAGES

In the previous post of this series, we talked about translation support in Fusion Applications. We discussed on how language specific data is handled by ADFbc entities. This post covers on how errors and warnings messages are implemented in Fusion Applications using FND_Messages. This post further explains on different ways to raise messages from the application depending upon the requirements.[Read More]

Tip to Quickly Test JDeveloper based Customizations Locally

We have been exploring design time customizations on various Fusion Applications and compiled  a list of dependencies that cause deployment failures in the integrated WLS. Below list contains  servlets, filters and EJB reference entries that can be commented in web.xml for testing the customizations locally.

For HCM comment out below in your Customization workspace's web.xml:

Servlet Entries

  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • RESTfulAPI
  • PortletProducerResourceServlet

EJB References

  • ess/runtime
  • ess/metadata

For Financials comment out below in your Customization workspace's web.xml:

Filter Entries

  • CardIssuerMDSFilter
  • BankRelationshipsMDSFilter

Servlet Entries

  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • PersonImage
  • PersonVCard
  • PortletProducerResourceServlet
  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • RESTfulAPI

Please do make sure to comment the entry as well as the mapping in the web.xml. Another very common dependency causing deployment failures in integrated WLS is the missing oracle.apps.common.resource library. The error stack may look like below:

[J2EE:160149]Error while processing library references. Unresolved application library
 references, defined in weblogic-application.xml: [Extension-Name: 
oracle.apps.common.resource, exact-match: false].'  weblogic.management.DeploymentException:
 [J2EE:160149]Error while processing library references
Please read here about deploying it as a shared library to the integrated WLS

Search for the media pack for Release 7 or just follow this link for the Win64 media pack. Please note that as with all Fusion Applications releases, it is important that you use the matching version of the development tools, so don’t install this as an upgrade to your earlier version of JDeveloper if the version of Fusion Applications you are developing for is not Release 7.
