Adding a custom css/skin file to a Oracle MAF application

MAF, OracleMobile By Feb 29, 2016 4 Comments
When we want to apply our own css to a Oracle MAF application, we need to configure a custom css file to it. Below is the procedure to know how to add a custom css/skin file to a MAF application.
  • Right click on ApplicationController project -> select CSS File -> enter css file name. Below is the default path of the file to be created. Here my css file name is myskin.css


  • Open maf-config.xml which is under Application Resources and check the skin family and version




  • open maf-skins.xml which is under the project “ApplicationController” and create an xml entry like below
version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″ ?>
         <adfmf-skins xmlns=”“>


Where <skin-id> is the combination of skin-family and skin-version of maf-config.xml file seperated by “-” and enter the css file path for <style-sheet-name>.
