Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) release, 2.5.0

This is a major release containing a number of platform upgrades and enhancements, including the following:

  • A NEW release of JDeveloper is required. 
  • The embedded Cordova platform engines have been updated to the following versions:
    • iOS version 4.5.0
    • Android version 6.2.3
    • Universal Windows Platform (UWP) version 5.0.0
  • We now support iOS 11, iPhone X and Xcode 9.
    • You need Xcode 9.x to build and deploy your MAF applications. Upgrade your installation to Xcode 9.x, as described in Using Xcode 9.x with MAF 2.5.0.
    • We have deprecated 32 bit support for iOS devices. 
    • Please check the Certification Matrix for devices now supported.
  • We now support Android 8, and the Google Pixel C phone.
  • For faster performance, MAF applications now evaluate EL expressions in the Java VM layer! 
    • Note: There is more error checking as well, such that new errors now may be raised causing code to break if it did not have full error checking in place already. For quick resolution, you can use a legacy mode.  See Evaluating EL Expressions in the Java VM Layer.
  • The inputDate component has been changed such that tapping the up arrow increases the value and the down arrow decreases the value. To keep the older behavior, there is a new attribute (legacyMode) whose value can be set to true.

  • We now support JDeveloper constructs to deploy MAF applications to the Universal Windows Platform, which means that you can deploy your application from the command line

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

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