MAF MCS Utility Patch for MAF 2.2.1

MAF MCS Utility is a library and public sample that simplifies integration of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) in Oracle MAF applications. The MAF MCS Utility library and its sample application are shipped as part of the Oracle MAF public samples, located in the publicSamples.zip file, along with all the other MAF samples.

Sometimes things happen as they do! Unfortunately, when shipping Oracle MAF 2.2.1, the MAF MCS Utility provided with the release was broken. The effect of the defect is that you are getting re-routed to the login screen, or if you got around this problem, Storage and UserInfo don't work properly in the sample application. Using the MAF MCS Utility JAR file in a custom application may fail for Storage uploads in the response sent back from MCS.  

A fixed for MAF MCS Utility (maf-mcs-utility 2.2.1) will be shipped within the next version of Oracle MAF. However, no need to wait. For Oracle MCS and Oracle MAF customers to get the patch to the MAF MCS Utility now, the Oracle Mobile team made the MAF MCS Utility version 2.2.1 available for download online.

Please use the link below to download both in one: the MAF MCS Utility library (a JAR file) and the MAF MCS Utility sample application, which is a generic MCS tester that can be configured to run against any public Oracle MCS instance.
