Now that ADF 12c is out, do you have a estimate when will the Jheadstart 12c will be available?
We are in the process of upgrading our jheadstart 10g application to 11g. The availability of JHS 12c will be an important factor for the planning of our upgrade path. If JHS12c will not be available in the future, we might have to consider not upgrading to JHS11g at all, and go directly to ADF11g or 12c.
Your advise is greatly appreciated.
Thanks StephenJ and StevenD! I think we will upgrade to JHS11 first, so that at least we could take advantage of the supported migration to JDEV12c. Because we have a vast amount of custom templates using ADF10g, it is a big effort to upgrade to ADF11g. We just hope that ADF11g->ADF12c upgrade would be easier.
We upgraded from 10 to 11 about 2 years ago. One thing we found when dealing with our custom templates was that there were a lot of things we had previously customized that were now built in to ADF or JHeadstart and we no longer needed our custom templates. It's going to depend entirely on what and how you've customized, but definitely check and see if there's an easier way to re-implement your functionality before you spend time on the templates.
Since JDev 11 and 12c are based on the same ADF technology stack, the upgrade will me much easier.
Only difference is the use of facelets, but this has hardly any impact on JHeadstart apps, only the UIShell page will change slightly.
