I have installed JDeveloper 11g Release 2 (188.8.131.52.0), in order to evaluate development with ADF Essentials.
The tutorial ( Developing with Oracle ADF Essentials) http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18941_01/tutorials/jdtut_11r2_55/jdtut_11r2_55_1.html shows how to start
a new Fusion Web Application(ADF) project.
But this option is missing !!!
What am I missing ?
OK, so you are running jdev on jdk 1.6.0_24!
Check ther role you are running using jdev Tools->'switch roles' and make sure 'Studio Developer' is activated.
Then check the tools->Features if all Application Development Framework checkboxes are set.
Have you installed jdev into a path with ' ' (space) in it? If yes, unsinstall and install it in a path without spaces.
I installed Oracle JDeveloper 11g (184.108.40.206.0) (Build 6276.1) Studio Edition: 220.127.116.11.0
jdevstudio11123install.exe Windows installer
and my role is studio developer
Everything is straightforward, but I don't get a complete development environment for Oracle ADF that includes everything Ineed in order to build and test Oracle ADF applications.
Something is missing and is not my fault.
Combining Timo's and Shay's answers
I reproduced successfully the following
If Java EE role is selected when entering JDeveloper first time after installation of JDeveloper then
even if studio developer role is selected from the tools menu, there
is no way to get ADF Fusion development functionality as ADF Business *, ADF Model Business * features, ADF application templates, are missing.
The only valid solution is to uninstall JDeveloper and install it again ( there is no need to use generic installer) and select
studio developer the first time after installation.
It looks like ADF functionality is registered only at initial JDeveloper startup with developer role selected.
