We are happy to announce that Oracle ADF and Oracle JDeveloper 12.2.1 have been released.
You can get them from OTN starting today.
We had several key themes for this release:
1 Infrastructure upgrade
JDK 8, WebLogic 12.2.1 (Java EE7), and the rest of the Fusion Middleware components (WebCenter, BI, and SOA)
2. Responsive UI
New ADF Faces components make it very easy to create responsive web interfaces with ADF. Check out the new match media behavior and Masonry layout for examples.
3. REST/JSON support
You can now publish ADF Business Components as REST/JSON services. Just follow the wizards.
You can also consume REST/JSON web services and expose them as data controls through the Web service data control wizard.
4. Remote Taskflows/Regions
You can now consume a task flow deployed as part of another application inside your application directly. This takes reusability to a new level.
5. Better data visualization
We continue to enhance our data visualization components with new components, capabilities, and easier binding dialogs. Add to this the fact that Alta UI is now the default look and feel, and the new browser based Theme Editor for simplified skin creation.
6. Cloud Integration
We've extended the capabilities of JDeveloper to do complete integration with the Oracle Developer Cloud Service - providing you with hosted Git, Issues tracking, build automation and more. All accessible directly from inside JDeveloper as well as the web interfaces.
That's not all - there are many other new features in this release - check out the JDeveloper 12.2.1 New Features doc.
