Oracle JHeadstart 11.1.1 Technical Preview 2 Now Available

Oracle JHeadstart 11.1.1 Technical Preview 2 is now available for download (build 11.1.1.0.46).
This release is compatible with JDeveloper 11 release 1 (11.1.1.1.0), as well as with the two JDeveloper Boxer releases (11.1.1.0.1 and 11.1.1.0.2).
Customers who own a JHeadstart supplement option license can download it from the Consulting Supplement Option portal.

An evaluation version of JHeadstart 11.1.1 is not yet available. We plan to make an evaluation version available in the fall of calendar year 2009.

In addition to many small enhancements, the following features have been added to the second technical preview:


  • Support for Stretching Layouts: JHeadstart now fully supports stretching options for ADF Faces Rich Client components.
    Through a new group-level property Enable Stretching, you can stretch the generate group content to fill the available space. Whether or not stretching
    will actually occur depends on some additional conditions that must be met. See the help description of this new group property in the application definition editor, and the
    JHeadstart Developer's guide for more info.

  • New Table Overflow Styles: The Table Overflow Style group property has two new allowable values: 'Right with Splitter' and 'Below with Splitter', which are
    useful settings when you want to generate multiple panes with stretching layouts that adjust based on the position of the splitter.

  • New Allowable Values for Same Page Display Position: The Same Page Display Position group property has two new allowable values: 'At the Right of Parent Group with Splitter'
    and 'Below Parent Group with Splitter', which are useful settings when you want to generate multiple panes with stretching group layouts that adjust
    based on the position of the splitter.
  • New Allowable Values for Region Container Layout: The Layout property of a region container has two new allowable values: 'Horizontal with Splitter'
    and 'Vertical with Splitter', which are useful settings when you want to generate multiple panes with stretching region layouts that adjust
    based on the position of the splitter.
  • Ability to Add Bindings to PageDefinition using Velocity Templates: It is now possible to add bindings and iterators to the page definition using
    custom velocity templates. Here are some examples:

    ${JHS.pageDefGenerator.addBinding($JHS.page,"myBinding","#CUSTOM_BINDING()")}
    ${JHS.pageDefGenerator.addExecutable($JHS.page,"myIterator","#CUSTOM_BINDING()")}
    ${JHS.pageDefGenerator.addParameter($JHS.page,"myParam","#CUSTOM_BINDING()")}


    The custom binding macro simply contains the XML you want to add to the page definition. This macro can be defined within the same
    velocity template.
  • Flex items: The 10.1.3 functionality of Flex Items (items added dynamically at runtime) is now re-implemented for release 11. The region that
    contains the flex items is now a reusable task flow, providing you with more flexibility and re-use of code.

  • File up/download: File upload, file download and display of images is now supported in release 11. It supports Intermedia (ORDSYS) column types, as well
    as BLOB column types

  • XML Reformatting: There is a new application-level property Reformat all XML Files which will reformat all generated XML files (except for the page definitions),
    giving you more readable and consistent files accross your application.

  • Upgrading from 10.1.3: When opening a 10.1.3 application definition file, JHeadstart will migrate this to release 11 upon your approval.
