These features enable developers to populate the metadata for declarative application business logic and user interfaces.
what JDeveloper version should be used for OAF development
Current JDeveloper patches:
Patch 4573517 - Oracle9i JDeveloper with OA Extension for 11.5.10 CU2
To determine which patch to use, you can simply check the framework version in your instance by using
then choose the matched one.
11.5.10K = patch 4045639
