Target platform (October 31, 2019)

Feature / Enhancement
Java SDK
The Target Java SDK lets you deploy Target server-side. This Java SDK helps you easily integrate Target with other Adobe Experience Cloud solutions, such as the Adobe Experience Cloud Identity Service, Adobe Analytics, and Adobe Audience Manager.
The Java SDK introduces best practices and removes complexities when integrating with Target via our delivery API so that your engineering teams can focus on business logic. The following are notable features that we are introducing in the latest version:
  • Support for prefetching and notifications that allows you to optimize for performance via caching.
  • Support for optimizing performance when you have a hybrid integration of Target on both your web pages and server-side. We are introducing a setting called serverState that is populated by experiences retrieved via the server-side so that at.js 2.2 will no longer make an additional server call to retrieve the experiences. This approach optimizes page load performance.
  • Support for retrieving VEC-created activities via the Java SDK, which is made possible by the new Delivery API.
  • Open sourced so your developers can contribute to the Target Java SDK .
For more information, see Release notes - Target Java SDK .

Target Standard/Premium 19.10.2 (October 31, 2019)

Feature / Enhancement
Work with multi-value attribues
Sometimes you want to work with a multi-value field. Consider the following examples:
  • You offer movies to users. A given movie has multiple actors.
  • You sell tickets to concerts. A given user has multiple favorite bands.
  • You sell clothing. A shirt is available in multiple sizes.
To handle recommendations in these scenarios, you can pass multi-value data to Target Recommendations and use special multi-value operators.
