Oracle ADF and Oracle JDeveloper 12.2.1 Are Here

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

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.

What are you waiting for - start exploring today!

    Hi, installed jdev 12.2.1. While creating new appln options available are webcenter Portal Asset application,webcenter portal server extension,webcenter portlet producer application. But webcenter Portal - Framework Application as like in is not available in 12.2.1.

    It is not showing in updates too. How to add webcenter to 12.2.1 or should we create the appln with webcenter Portal Asset application option?
