Patch released for ADF Mobile navigation issue in iOS 8

A new patch for Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile has been released to specifically address the following issue:

iOS-based Mobile Applications developed using Oracle ADF Mobile may encounter feature navigation and login issues while running on devices running iOS 8.  While navigation through the navigation bar of the application still works, programmatic navigation such as navigating to custom springboard or via gotoFeature Data Control may fail, causing the application to appear to hang.  The same symptom may also occur when navigating from the login screen to the default feature.

See Note  1929990.1 ADF Mobile Application Feature Navigation and Login Hanging While Running on iOS8 Devices

Also see Patch 19662784

Which MAF or ADF component should I use?

What Mobile Application Framework(MAF) components are available?  The ADF Mobile Design Wiki contains a list of MAF components that can be used.

How can I find out which  ADF components are supported by the release of ADF I am using?  The  Oracle ADF Faces Rich Client Components site can be referenced to get the latest information about NEW ADF 12C  Components. Begin by reviewing the ADF Cheat Sheets, below is a sample of the first two pages of the sheets.

To find additional documentation for the latest version see the following:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Tag Reference for Oracle ADF Faces

Oracle Fusion Middleware Data Visualization Tools Tag Reference for Oracle ADF Faces

Oracle Fusion Middleware Tag Reference for Oracle ADF Mobile-

For your version of ADF see the documentation with a similar title.

Oracle Mobile Application Framework Version (2.0.1) Now Available

The Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) Version (2.0.1) has been released September 23, 2014. 

Apple iOS 8 Support

The new release has support for Apple iOS 8. Updating to MAF 2.0.1 is necessary to stay current with the latest Apple iOS AppStore upload requirements.  Apple has just changed several upload requirements in the first part of September 2014, and MAF 2.0.1 has been enhanced to meet these ever-changing upload requirements that were frequently introduced without any prior warning.

Enterprise Application Management and Security Enhancements

MAF 2.0.1, has a tighter integration with Oracle Mobile Security Suite (OMSS) to manage iOS version of MAF applications.  Mobile Application Framework by itself provides robust encryption and tight integration with enterprise security infrastructure.  However, when you need Mobile Application Management, Data Leak Policy Enforcement, and Containerization support, Oracle Mobile Security Suite is Oracle's recommended solution.

Enhanced Tooling Support

JDeveloper users are used to using the “Run Configurations” feature in order to test their code.  Previously in MAF, this was never hooked up and the only way to run an app was to deploy it via the applications menu.  Now the run/debug configurations are setup to build/deploy and run the applications in either release or debug mode.

There are also a number of enhancements for AMX Components, for both data display and visualization.

See the  New Oracle Mobile Application Framework Version (2.0.1) Now Available blog entry to see the full details.
