Oracle ADF Mobile: adfmf-application.xml and adfmf-feature.xml Part 2 (final)

Hi,

This is the second and final part of this topic. We will try to answer some more questions regarding those file descriptors. This is going to be a brief post since a detailed explanation was made in the part1.

adfmf-application.xml

adfmf-feature.xml

You can download the sample application from the following GitHub Repository:

You can find part 1 here.

Okay lets clear out some additional stuff in order to be ready to go to more advanced stuff.

-Can we have pages that are not included in the adfmf-feature.xml ? Something like references?

We can indeed! Features are the pages that will be viewed in the springBoard(if enabled) and the navigationBar. So in simple words, your features are the content that you will be able to navigate to from your springboard and your navigationBar. Something like a reference point..

-Can we have more than one pages in one adfmf-feature.xml ?
Yes of course we can. Each page (html, AMX, remote url) in the adfmf-feature.xml file represents a feature. That feature can be controlled from the adfmf-application.xml regarding visibility and device access.

-When are we going to talk about AMX pages??
In the next ADF Mobile post. These posts were more to get acquainted with those files. Since we now know what we are talking about. We will continue to more interesting stuff. One thing at a time.


There are still features not mentioned in these posts, but I think it would be better if we saw them on a request basis, when there will be a need.

The example application in the repository, covers all those questions mentioned.

You can download the sample application from the following GitHub Repository:
