Oracle has just updated their ADF Statement of Direction, announcing that ADF 12.2.1 will be out in 2015. Here is what they are promising for this release:
The Next Version of Oracle ADF
Oracle is planning to deliver the next version of Oracle ADF – 12.2.1 – as part of the next release of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 in 2015. Some of the focus areas for this version include:
- REST and JSON Support – including enhancement to the REST data control as well as the ability to publish business logic developed with Oracle ADF Business Components through REST interfaces.
- Responsive UI Support – further enhancements to Oracle ADF to simplify and enhance support for responsive UI design and implementation.
- Additional Oracle ADF Faces Components – new components, as well as enhancements to existing components, that further enrich the set of JSF components provided with Oracle ADF
- JDK 8 support – aligning with the latest version of Java to support new language capabilities
I look forward to better support for REST & JSON – it will be a nice improvement if we can publish our business components as REST web services to consume in e.g. Mobile Application Framework.
