In this link you can review the information about all JDeveloper releases.
The first release JDeveloper 1.0 was in 1998!
After 18 years ADF has evolved and in View layer we had had UIX-JSP,Swing,Faces and now ADF Faces with MAF. But the core of ADF BC is similar arround big concepts like AMs,VOs,EOs,ViewLinks,Associations,…
I think that this is one of the main features in this framework, that protect you from UI technology changes and this is important in a big company or big projects
Today I was checking the miggration support section in certifcation matrix documentacion and I see that we don’ t have support if we upgrade to 12.2.1 from 11gR2 directly.
We must migrate to 12.1.2 or 12.1.3 firstly.
More info here
ADF Faces is built under JSF.
Is important to know the JSF version that runs in our application for make the best use of JSF and so, we can use the improvements or new components
Below, I write a list with the combination between JDeveloper and JSF versions
- JDeveloper 188.8.131.52 –> JSF 1.2
- JDeveloper 184.108.40.206 –> JSF 1.2
- JDeveloper 220.127.116.11 –> JSF 2.0
- JDeveloper 18.104.22.168 –> JSF 2.1
Note: In this another post by Timo you can see the combination between JDeveloper, ADF and WebLogic
Now we have a three versions of ADF product.
Here I write some keys so that you may make a better choice
- R1: 22.214.171.124 the ADF with SOA ,BI and Webcenter complements
- R2: 126.96.36.199 the version with JSF 2 and ADF improvements and ADF Mobile
- 12c: 188.8.131.52.0 the version support for an corresponding new Fusion Middleware release 12.1.2 with cloud support
And now if you have a JDeveloper version, ¿which is my version of weblogic?
Generalmente ADF se asocia a aplicaciones de backoffice, de gestión de datos, mantenimientos, etc.
Pero cada vez hay más clientes que usan ADF para realizar portales públicos. Sobretodo ha medida que productos como WebCenter van cogiendo madurez.
Aquí les dejo una url donde pueden ver un buen listado de sitios públicos realizados con tecnología ADF.
