Oracle MAF - Disabling Landscape mode

Recently I had a requirement for disabling landscape orientation.
Frank and Chris suggested me below and it worked for me:

For iOS on the deployment profile. 
Select Application --> Application Properties --> Deployment --> select iOS profile and and click on edit. Select device orientations. And there you will find option for enabling/disabling portrait/landscape modes for iPhone and iPad.

Oracle MAF - Using Panel Group Layout - wrap

In Oracle MAF one new option has been provided for the attribute "layout" of panelGroupLayout. It is very useful. I will give you a scenario: you want to create a contact us section where by you will want the text, followed by phone numbers(which should be clickable and should open phone dial on clicking) and email(clicking on which a write message of your default mail should open).

For such scenario you can use panel group layout with layout property set to wrap and inside it you can use output text and golinks to serve the purpose.

Oracle MAF - Issues, Tips and Tricks

Hi All,

I have built a mobile application using Mobile Application Framework released in July 2014.
In the mobile app I have done integration using REST services with JSON output. And the user will fill some forms and will send attachments from camera and library. The user can see history and I have used a pie chart as well for historical data.

Here is some of the issues, tricks which I learnt and I am sharing the same:




[11:29:47 AM] Checking state of Android Debug Bridge server...
[11:29:47 AM] Android Debug Bridge server already running.
[11:29:55 AM] Command-line executed: ["C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb", start-server]
[11:29:55 AM] ADB server didn't ACK
[11:29:55 AM] * failed to start daemon *
[11:29:55 AM] * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
[11:29:55 AM] Command-line execution failed (Return code: -1)
[11:29:55 AM] Deployment cancelled.

Go to platform-tools and kill adb server, it might be running because you would have done some debugging.
cd C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
adb kill-server
