As summer winds down, get back to work mode and download the latest Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) release, 2.4.2!

This is a minor release containing the following enhancements:

  • Support for Visual Studio 2017
  • Improved MAF compatibility with a range of 3rd party Cordova plugins.
    - We have upgraded to a newer version of Cordova-Plugman.  Windows bar code scanner also works on this version.
  • MAF application developers are able to provide user authentication via the OpenID Connect authentication protocol.
    - OpenID was created by an open source community and allows you to use an existing account to sign in to multiple websites, without needing to create new passwords.
    - See "How to Configure OpenID Authentication" for details.
    - See www.openid.net for more information on OpenID.
  • Support for the barcode scanner plugin on Windows.
    - Source code example given in the BarcodeDemo sample app
  • Ability to hide the logon URL
    - For more security, you can now hide the URL on the logon screen.
    - Available for Single Sign On customers on iOS and Android.

Please refer to the What's New section of the developer guide for detailed information about the changes and how they may affect you.

For additional release information, such as release notes and certification matrix, please refer to the MAF documentation on OTN

This release of MAF requires JDeveloper and you can upgrade MAF via the JDeveloper Update Center.  

And we always encourage you to upgrade to this latest MAF release as soon as possible!
