Almost one month ago, Oracle released Oracle Mobile Application Framework 2.3 that allow us to build Windows 10 applications. After building or migrating our application it is time to distribute it.
Fist you have to prepare you development environment. You can check how to do it here:  Oracle MAF: configuring Windows 10 development environment
In this post I will show how to deploy and install an UWP executable
We are going to use Workbetter application that can be found in the next path (change ‘C:\Oracle\Middleware1221’ with your JDeveloper installation path):
‘C:\Oracle\Middleware1221\Oracle_Home\jdeveloper\jdev\extensions\oracle.maf\Samples’
One we have opened the application we have to deploy it as we usually do todeploy it to iOS or Android, but selecting Windows profile. Read the complete article here.

One of the main features that includes Oracle MAF 2.3 released early this week is the ability to deploy applications in any Windows 10 device.

Downloading and Installing JDeveloper 12.2.1
To develop an application with Oracle MAF 2.3 we need JDeveloper 12.2.1 that can be downloaded in this link. You have to download both files.

Once we have installed JDeveloper, we have to install Oracle Mobile Application Framework extension.

The most awaited version of Oracle Mobile Application Framework (Oracle MAF 2.3.0) has been released. This is a big announcement as we can now build Windows 10 applications that can be run on any Windows 10 devices, even on computers.
These are some of the new features of this release:

JDeveloper 12.2.1
Oracle MAF 2.3.0 is now available in JDeveloper 12.2.1, released in November just before Oracle Open World.

Windows 10 support

Oracle MAF now allows to deploy the application to Windows 10 devices, event desktops or laptops but there are some limitations as you can only deploy the applications to devices based on x86 chipset.

Mobile Cloud Service Analytics integration

This release also provides built-in support for generating analytics events in Oracle Mobile Cloud Service. This will allow us to create custom analytics events and also for lifecycle events like startup, user login, etc… without any line of code.
Data Visualization Tools enhancements
Some of this enhancements are that we can individually style the axis labels or tooltips.

We can also set vertial orientation  for Rating Gauge.

In conclusion I think that this is a step forward and that Oracle MAF is now one of the best choices to build cross-platform single-code mobile applications that makes the development simpler thanks to the declarative programming. Read the complete article here.

Open the empList page.
Go to Struture panel and right-click the List View component.
Select the Surround With option, and then the Refresh Container option.

clip_image002This tutorial walks you through developing an Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) application that monitors and detects iBeacons on both iOS and Android devices. You will learn how to develop an iOS app that advertises an iBeacon identifier. During the lab you will also learn how to develop AMX pages, incorporate 3rd party Cordova plugins, and make practical use of local notifications with MAF apps.
In the first part you create a beacon client MAF application that uses a Cordova plugin as a bridge between the device’s bluetooth capabilities and the MAF application. Because the Cordova plugin’s API is written in JavaScript, you include JavaScript to communicate between the MAF application and the plugin. You’ll also include a local notification so that if the application is in the background or the device is asleep, the user will become aware that the device has entered a beacon region.
In the second part of the tutorial, you create another application that acts as a beacon that will advertise its location. To test the applications from this tutorial, you must deploy each application to a separate device that supports Bluetooth Low Energy. One device will act as the beacon and advertise, while the other device will use an application to monitor and detect the advertisements. The device running the advertising beacon must be an iOS device. The device running the client application may either be an Android or iOS device. Note that the device running the advertising application must be an iOS device. This tutorial deploys and tests applications on iOS devices. Read the complete article here.
