The new version of Oracle Visual Builder rolls out this month. Known as version 2204, the new version provides a host of new capabilities for application developers.
This version also brings features that rolled out in Visual Builder Studio 2201 (such as Fragments and Data Palette) to the designer in the standalone Visual Builder and Oracle Integration instances.
Here are the key new capabilities you’ll find in your environment:
Create Business Objects on Existing Tables & Views
If you have an existing Oracle database with data in it that you would like to expose through Visual Builder apps, you can now leverage Visual Builder’s Business Objects (BO) to expose the existing tables (and views) through REST services. To enable this functionality – set your Visual Builder instance to leverage an external Oracle database instead of the one coming with the VB server. Then you can set the properties of a new application to specify that it will map to an existing schema in your database. When you create a business object, you’ll be prompted to pick an existing table to base the business object on.
The ability to define a BO on top of a view lets you leverage the full power for SQL functions on your data to get views that include aggregations, distinct values, and much more. Read the complete article here.
