New In This Release

ADF Faces and Data Visualization (DVT)

  • FA: Skyros Skin: Skyros Skin
    A new look and feel that incorporates current UI visual design trends (flat, rather than dimensional, reduced gradients, reduced borders, light and or white colors with splashes of color).  This skin family uses CSS3 for gradients, drop shadows, rounded corners etc. in comparison to the fusion skins that use background images.  Making this skin modern, lightweight, and easy to skin.  
  • New visualization components: Treemap, Sunburst, and Timeline:
    • Treemap is a new visualization used to display a hierarchy using color and size of rectangular nodes to convey information.
    • Sunburst is used to display multiple hierarchy levels in a radial layout.
    • Timeline is a new visualization used to display events on a timeline.
  • New component: List View: A new component for viewing a collection of data.  The listView can be used to declaratively achieve paragraph style results lists.
  • New component: PanelGridLayout: A new, more predictable and more efficient layout component that can be used to create all new layouts.  This component generates the same markup that meets the CSS3 specs for grid layout so it can be optimized for layout performance.  This is now a recommended UI layout component for most pages. 
  • New Component: Code Editor: This new component allows you to display and edit text in a code editor format with line numbers and text highlighting.
  • Android Certification: Certify Android 4.0 with Chrome browser
  • Enable Runtime Skin Updates - This feature allows an application to make itself available to accept new skins without having to restart the application.  This is a developer/testing productivity improvement for developers of new skins.  You need the standalone skin editor (12c) to invoke the wizard which allows you to deploy to these web applications.  
  • Hierarchy Viewer Enhancements:
    • Support for drag and drop
    • Ability to disable drag for individual nodes
    • Auto pan Hierarchy Viewer when dragging and dropping to bring hidden nodes into view
    • Option to disable node detail window
  • Paging Support for Pivot Table and Gantt: Pivot Table now provides support for both row and column paging. Gantt supports paging similar to the TreeTable support. Both components allow configuration of the paging vs. scrolling via the new scrollPolicy attribute.
  • Pivot Table Enhancements:
    • Ability to always display layer headers
    • Ability to wrap header labels
    • An API to control the percentage of screen real estate allocated to the header region
  • Table Enhancements:
    • Support for freezing the right most columns in a table so that a scroll bar appears on the left side of the frozen columns.
    • Table/TreeTable - Both components allow configuration of the paging vs. scrolling via the new scrollPolicy attribute.
  • Calendar support for 15min appointments and the ability to zoom in:
    • Time slots are configurable and need not be fixed at 30 minutes
    • Support zoom-in/zoom-out of the calendar
  • File Upload Enhancements: 
    • Support chunked file transfer for large file uploads
    • Support for multiple file upload using HTML5 UI where available, and non-HTML5 with java applet. Includes a Drag and Drop interface and a progress bar.

ADF Model

  • Support complex types in service based EOs: Allow attributes of complex types to be exposed in Service-Based EOs.
  • Support Date Effective VO for Business Event: With Data Effective VOs, new support for the "Update" business event, raised on the new row.

ADF Business Components

  • New ADF BC audit rules: New audits are added to ensure
    1. DT is managing generated Java files
    2. Order of attributes in BC definition files is the same as the corresponding .java files
    3. EO discriminator columns are selected in VO
    4. A view attribute based upon an entity attribute with a SQL expression should have its own derived expression

ADF Desktop Integration

  • Support for Progress Indication Bar: While downloading/uploading the user gets a visual progress bar indicator of the overall progress and individual records processing
  • Support for self-signed certificates: Users can ignore warnings from self-signed certificates. Useful for dev and test deployments.
  • Merge Cell Support: Allows a form component to be inserted into a merge cell range
  • Client-Server version mismatch warning: Displays a warning if the ADFdi client and server versions do not match.
  • ADFdi Performance Enhancements: Choice list caching optimization. 10x reduction in time for some cases. Upstream compression. Reduces payload size by up to 90% improving upload times by as much as 30% in high latency (WAN) scenarios
  • ADFdi DT Enhancements: Delete multiple components at once. Drag and drop from bindings palette. Default runtime values for resource properties.
