We are happy to announce the release of a new version of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE)- the Oracle Eclipse tooling offering - with support for the latest Oracle MAF 2.1.
This new version of OEPE is based on the latest Eclipse Luna SR2, and adds support for the full set of MAF 2.1 features including support for Java 8 compact profile 2, the new Xcode and Android SDKs, and Cordova 3 plugin integration.
One unique feature added to the OEPE design time experience is a simplified way to interact with REST/JSON services.
REST/JSON services are the preferred way to exchange information between your mobile application and remote server.
A new wizard based interface in OEPE allows you to easily test REST URLs and then generate a simple set of POJO Java classes that access those services and working with the data types they use.
You can then expose those classes as data controls and simply drag and drop them to the AMX pages to create the mobile UI.
Here is a 5 minutes demo that shows you the new REST features in action:
