The New JDeveloper WebCenter is Out

We have just released the new JDeveloper 10.1.3.2 onto OTN.
Sounds like a minor version but it is not - it brings a whole new area of application development into JDeveloper - what is called context-centric development.

This release basically adds to JDeveloper the development environment for Oracle WebCenter - further highlighting our "single IDE for any type of development" message.

What does it mean to you?

The most interesting thing to me is the merger of portal and JSF development. Until now there was a line separating JSF development from Portals. You either did JSF application or you did Portals with portlet.

With this release you can now do the following:


  • Take your JSF application and turn it into a standard portlet to be consumed in a portal.

  • Or even more interesting, take a portlet and stick it into your JSF page. Yes you heard it right - you don't need a portal page to run your portlets - they just run inside your JSF page along with the rest of your JSF application.

  • (Webcenter for example provide portlet that you can include in your page that do such things as rich text editor, web clipping, RSS readers, omni-portlets and more).
    This demo shows this duality.
  • In addition two new ADF Faces panel container will let you move parts of your JSF around the page with runtime customization.

  • Add to this the ability to create ADF Data Controls on top of content repositories such as the file system, Oracle Content DB and Oracle Portal.

  • The ability to develop JSR-168 portlets (as well as PDK portlets).

  • An ADF Security wizard.

  • and more

and you can see again that we should probably used a more significant numbering for this version.


We are still putting the final pieces of collateral out there on OTN but you can just visit the JDeveloper and WebCenter pages for more info.

Hello Shay, Is this a replacement for the ADF framework or does it sit on top of the ADF framework to develop a rather rich interface ? Thanks...Vijay

This is not a replacement for ADF, this is an extension of ADF. It adds to ADF a couple of new powerful JSF components for runtime customization. And it also adds to ADF a new data control option. It also allows you to integrate portlets with your ADF application and pass information between them.

well I thought the Portal was going to go away some day - with JSF as a portlet ....looks like the Portal will stay I guess

Seems that you are running into the 64kb limit on compiled Java classes size. It's a sun bug - http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4262078 The solution is to reduce the size of your JSP and possibly use include. Newer versions of OC4J do improve size reduction for the JSP compiled code so it is always worth while checking the latest version to see if it resolves the issue.
