This section describes new features in Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Release 1 (11.1.1).
This preface contains the following topics:
You can add business intelligence objects stored in the Oracle BI EE Presentation Services Catalog to ADF applications. This functionality is delivered through Oracle BI EE extensions that you plug into Oracle JDeveloper. Any filters, prompts, or action links included in business intelligence objects will work as designed when included in an ADF application.
For information, see Chapter 1, "Embedding Business Intelligence Objects in ADF Applications".
When creating ADF applications, you can use the Business Intelligence Logical SQL View Object to access the Oracle Business Intelligence Server, fetch Oracle BI EE data, and bind that data to native ADF components. This method requires you to create a JDBC connection to the Oracle Business Intelligence Server. The functionality to build the BI JDBC connection is standard JDeveloper functionality.
The remaining functionality required to bind the data to ADF view objects is delivered through Oracle BI EE extensions that you plug into JDeveloper.
For information, see Chapter 2, "Using the Oracle BI EE Logical SQL View Object".
This release of Oracle BI EE supports integration with Oracle WebCenter. You can use JDeveloper to create and configure a WebCenter application that integrates with the Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services Catalog so that at runtime, users can open and browse the catalog and add business intelligence objects to their WebCenter Spaces pages.
Because this guide covers only new features and functionality, there are no items that you need to be aware of if your site has upgraded from Oracle Business Intelligence 10g to Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Release 1 (188.8.131.52).
