This is a limited release of JDeveloper specifically intended for developers building applications that target deploying to Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension on Oracle Cloud. If you are looking to develop applications that you intend to deploy on premise or for deployment to Java Cloud Service (not the SaaS Extension edition), please see the JDeveloper download page on OTN for one of our other generally available releases that meet your requirements. JDeveloper 184.108.40.206.1 is a minor patch release on top of 220.127.116.11.0 which adds Oracle Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension support.
The Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension offering in Oracle Cloud is configured with Oracle ADF 18.104.22.168.1 shared libraries, allowing developers to create custom ADF applications that integrate with Oracle's SaaS offerings based on the same ADF version. Please note that Oracle does not intend to release ADF 22.214.171.124.1 as a on-premise installable option. Developers can use the JDeveloper 126.96.36.199.1 to build and test ADF 188.8.131.52.1 applications that are ultimately intended for deployment to Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension.
New Features for JDeveloper Users
JDeveloper 184.108.40.206.1 provides out-of-the-box support for developing for and deploying applications to Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension. Other than that, this release does not contain any new JDeveloper features.
New Features for ADF Users
ADF 220.127.116.11.1 has a few new features that you can take advantage of when deploying to Java Cloud Service- SaaS Extension. Of particular interest to Java Cloud Service developers are two new ADF Faces components (af:panelSpringBoard and af:panelDrawer) along with the new option on af:panelTabbed to use a vertical tab orientation. These features provide the basis of the Fusion Applications new Simplified UI experience and can be leveraged by custom ADF applications to achieve a similar result. For more information, please refer to the documentation for this release.
Note, if you are looking for these features in an on-premise deployment solution, please evaluate the Oracle JDeveloper and ADF 18.104.22.168.0 or later release which has these, and many other new features.
The known issues for this release are the same as for JDeveloper 22.214.171.124.0, with the following exceptions:
