Yes, support for ADF with JSF2.x is planned for CY2013. However, the current plan is to support ADF 12.1.2. Support for ADF 11.1.2 is TBD. Are you interested only in the ADF Faces components or do you also need support for ADF Bindings?1 person found this helpful
Thanks for the quick response. We are only intending to use ADF Rich Faces components plus the ADF controller
That helps. Finally, do you rely on OEPE to deploy the application to a Weblogic Server instance or do you deploy externally to other appservers? Would you be interersted in deploying to GlassFish?
Thanks for the swift response.
During development, we're looking to deploy the application directly to WLS from within Eclipse. For test/production, we'll be using Maven to build the artifacts. We would rather stick with WLS through rather than mixing servers.
You could start creating your ADF applications based today which will be based on the 11gR1 code line and migrate them to ADF 12.1.2 which is based on the 11gR2 code line.
We're looking to use facelets templating, so I don't think developing with JSF 1.2 is an option?
In ADF 12c there would be conversion from JSPX to Facelets. Hence, you could create JSPX-based templates today in OEPE and they would be migrated to facelets in the moment we support ADF 12 in OEPE.
Nonetheless, to set up the right expectations: ADF Faces templates will work on facelets which does not imply ADF Faces template = Facelets Templates. As you might now we provide templating capabilities since the first release of ADF 11g. Are you looking into specific features of Facelets templating? perhaps I can validate internally if we cover them on our side on the ADF Faces templating.
By the way are you currenly using OEPE with ADF?

We're using features of facelets templates that are not available through ADF (for example n-level inheritance of templates). (We did test out ADF templating, but found it was insufficient for our needs).
We're currently using Eclipse without OEPE, but would really appreciate being able to use the extra facilities that OEPE offers.
Right, nested templates is not available right now. However it'll be part of the ADF templating capabilities on ADF 12c. Are there any other features that you'd love to have on templating, I'd like to compare to what we have been implementing for the 12c release.
