Visio Stencils for ADF Faces Available on SampleCode

Guest Author

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new tool aiming to help visual designers and UI developers to build mockups for ADF applications outside of JDeveloper in a fast and quickly way. Available through samplecode.oracle.com, the ADF Visio stencils provide you with a large set of shapes, icons and layouts representing the most commonly used visual components.


You can check out this video that shows you how to get you started using the Visio stencils.

    Thanks folks for this great tool! In your download, can you also include a sample visio with some prebuilt screen layouts (say the visio corresponding to the image displayed in this post)?

    Juan.Ruiz, thanks for sharing the new Visio tool. It will definitely help visual designer and UI designers. As I use Visio 2010, I will try this for sure. Thanks once again.

    Hi Srkshnamurthy,
    These pre-built screens are for internal use only.

    I just started using the ADF visio stencil and I've found that it's a bit wonky - - the text some of the input fields doesn't format properly and cannot be reformatted easily. Specifically, it's the "select one choice" and "text field" stencils in the "form layout" file that are giving me trouble. Will there be an updated/ corrected set of stencils released?

    Hi Hallie,
    At this point we are trying to measure the stencils usage by our user and collecting as much feedback from everyone to decide on whether an update is needed or not.
    Thanks for your feedback

    Hi, what error are you getting trying to access samplecode.oracle.com the site is up and running. You should be able to access the project directly from the link I have provided on the entry.

    the message : "Please log in to verify your access permissions"

    so no way to donwload

    Hi, there have been problems in the past accessing samplecode with some people because of the way that the certificates are defined for that site. Can you clear the cache and try again.

    If this doesn't help I'll send you the project via email.

    After one session of the the Oracle Openworld last week, I would like to evaluate the Visio Stencils for ADF but when trying to download it I did not succeed.

    Could you please send me the file via mail as you suggested above.

    Many thanks
