A customizable application means you can take the application and make modifications to it to suit the needs of a particular group, such as an industry or site. In Oracle Application Developer Framework (ADF) applications, you can create customization classes and layers to support the customization of metadata content, and then customize the metadata within the context of a specified layer.
To begin defining a customization layer, you will open the file
CustomizationLayerValues.xml, which is located in the folder
/jdev where JDeveloper is installed (that is,
<JDEVELOPER_HOME>/jdeveloper/jdev). To locate and open the file, from the
menu, you will choose
to display the Open dialog.
In the file
CustomizationLayerValues.xml, you will modify values in the
site customization layer to add two configurable layer values:
You will also create a runtime
customization.properties file, which contains the configurable layer values defined for one or more default customization layers. To add a
customization.properties file, you will use the Create File dialog, which you can access from New Gallery. In New Gallery, you will select
General in the
tree, then select
File in the
customization.properties file, you will add the layer values defined for the
site customization layer
