Here are some of the highlights of this version.

The New Value() Function

The new function makes it possible to retrieve the language dependent values of a Value List with ease. Consider the following Value List in 19B:

And consider the following rules in a Word document:

The first line will return  the value, and the second line will return the text of the title. We can now return the actual value as well as the text, reliably.

New Deployment Functionality in REST

If you are a REST user in the administrative area, two new elements have been added to the deployment resources – locale and urlParameters. You can now get these in your REST calls.

More Extension Capabilities

If you are working in complex JavaScript extensions, then the following will be of use to you. Now you can retrieve more information about the underlying definition of the fullCustomInput Control extension:

  • getQuestionLayout()
  • getSideQuestionWidth()
  • getMultiLineTextRows()

All of these refer to Styles settings that the designer might have implemented on the original Control so that you can pick them up and work with them in your JavaScript code.

API Warnings

If you created a static metadata connection a long time ago, or built a connector which is long in the tooth, you will now see warnings to remind you to upgrade the connector or risk being caught out by a version which will no longer be supported.

Chat API New Features

The Chat API has moved swiftly since it’s inception just a few months ago. Now we have better input options for users who need to select something, we also have document (attachment) storage capability both in Oracle Service Cloud and other connections, and better access to Chat data.

New UI Language

To my friends in Budapest – the Hungarian UI for Oracle Policy Modeling and Oracle Policy Automation Hub has been released. No parser so far, but at least you can build a custom language and work in Hungarian menus!

Office Support

Office 2019 is now supported and certified.
