OTN Latinoamérica Tour 2012

Better late than never. Sorry for the delay on getting this content up for all of you and thanks again for your attendance. A number of excellent questions came out of the sessions I delivered and herein I'm providing you with the content, in pdf format, for those sessions. I'm also providing pointers to Forms to ADF integration/migration as well as some details around OAF as used in E-Business Suite and ADF.

Here's the sessions delivered by location. Click on any of the links to download the session content in pdf format.

A brief note on Form Integration & Migration:

Does your organization have an Oracle Forms application that you'd like to migrate to ADF? Or, perhaps you're an Oracle Forms Developer and want to modernize your application development skills? If so, you've come to the right place! This section will strive to answer common questions that arise as you move from Forms to ADF.

Our Oracle Forms Statement of Direction points out that Oracle is committed to the long-term support of Oracle Forms and Reports. However, many customers feel they are outgrowing their Forms applications. Users are demanding more sophisticated and interactive users interfaces. Executives are requiring SOA-enabled applications that integrate with peripheral services. Development leads are encouraging a more modern approach to application development, including adherence to design patterns like MVC. So even as Oracle still supports Forms, the list of reasons to move off of it is becoming more compelling and is only gaining further momentum by the fact that Oracle's own Fusion Applications are using ADF.

Developers and organizations looking to align with both the technology stack and look-and-feel of Fusion Applications are choosing ADF, and thus reaping the benefits of years of best practices in enterprise application development that are baked into the ADF framework. So, if you decide to migrate off of Forms for any of these reasons, ADF is the way to go. Grant Ronald has published a video of our position on the subject, along with an ODTUG article explaining our direction. These materials explain that there are other migration tools/frameworks/paths, but the best choice is usually to follow Gartner's recommendation that if you are going to migrate off of Oracle Forms, ADF is the least risky and least costly migration path.

Please visit the Oracle Forms page here.

For details around OAF as used in E-Business Suite (EBS) and when to use ADF with EBS you can review the following blogs from Shay Shmeltzer.

Static List View Objects exposed to UI in a Select One Choice List

To quickly create a static list that you can easily assign to an attribute in an entity object and persist try using a Static List View Object.

In this demo I have an ADF Fusion Starter Application Workspace that contains a Model and ViewController project with a entity and view object based on a single customers table with three fields as follows: CUSTID, CUSTOMERNAME and COUNTRY. CUSTID is based on a dbsequence. What I'll show you is how to create a Static List View Object for countries and then expose this to a UI where you can select a country from a static list and assign that country to a customer. Further, you can persist this to you customers table.

For best viewing be sure to select HD in the viewlet video controls and take it full screen also from the controls. Check it out!

Learn Advanced ADF, Free, and online now!

Last year, Grant Ronald and team (Oracle PMs - Development Tools), developed an Advanced ADF course that they ran globally and was delivered primarily to an internal Oracle audience. There was grand demand for this class so they've provided a scalable method of delivering this same training but at a pace set by the student. In addition, "NO TRAVEL REQUIRED!". Therefore the Advanced ADF eCourse just for you. Part 1 of the course has just been released and aims to take the student from a quick overview of ADF, through bindings, project development and task flows. In the coming weeks, there will be a release of additional ADF parts of interest in this series of online courses (ecourse). Each lesson takes the student through a structured set of videos to watch, then a quiz is provided to test knowledge on the content just covered. In addition, hands-on lessons will be encouraged.

The ecourse is delivered with a structured menu layout which will guide the student through a learning experience allowing them to review their progress and see what lessons are up and coming.

This valuable learning aid will undoubtedly help you become proficient in Oracle ADF! You can take the course are your convenience here.

Development Lifecycle with Oracle Jdeveloper 11g

In this entry I'm going to present a demo, via a viewlet, illustrating the Full Development Lifecycle supported by the new release of Oracle JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0 Build 6017). I've created a viewlet available on OTN that provides the following details:

  • Design
  • Coding
  • Debugging
  • Testing
  • Tuning
  • Building
    • ANT
    • Maven
  • Deploying
  • Team Productivity Center (TPC)
To learn more about the Full Development Lifecycle supported by Oracle JDeveloper 11g please review the viewlet available here.

Maven Integration with JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0.0)

Thisentry is going to cover the new Maven integration both through a How-To that I've created and live on Oracle's Technology Network (OTN) and through a viewlet that I've created to illustrate how easy it is to leverage Oracle's JDeveloper Maven integration.

Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information. Maven provides a way to help with managing:

  • Builds
  • Documentation
  • Reporting
  • Dependencies
  • Software Configuration Management (SCM)
  • Releases
  • Distribution

To see the out-of-the-box integration with Maven provided by Oracle JDeveloper please read my How-To available on OTN here. I've also created a simple video that illustrates creating a Maven
Project in Oracle JDeveloper as well as importing a Maven Project into Oracle JDeveloper which you can view.

For best viewing be sure to select HD in the viewlet video controls and take it full screen also from the controls. Check it out!

Oracle JDeveloper/ADF 11g (11.1.2.0.0 Build 6017) is here!

JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0.0 Build 6017) Released!

Oracle JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.2.0.0 (Build 6017) is here and loaded with many new and exciting features including JSF2.0/Facelets support, the new skin editor, as well as Hudson and Maven integration just to name a few. Here are some quotes from our customers:

Customer Quotes

"We are early adopters of JDeveloper and ADF, working from first JDeveloper 10g versions. Amazing work has been accomplished by Oracle during recent years with JDeveloper and ADF technology becoming industry standard when implementing enterprise systems. That being said, we are thrilled with what Oracle will offer us with new JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) release. Even more industry standards will be supported, among them an important one is JSF 2.0. However, JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) is not only about new standards, it will deliver next level of product runtime performance. We expect JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) IDE to be even faster and more reliable. Solid support will be offered for such important areas as Web Services which is especially good news for SOA projects. Red Samurai looks forward to get this new really great tool, JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2), and offer our customers top level quality services." Andrejus Baranovskis, Oracle ACE Director and CEO - Red Samurai Consulting.

"At Axi, we're very happy that we will have Maven support in the next JDeveloper edition,  it brings more freedom of choice, making it easier to import community driven projects based on maven, and -if necessary- gives us the possibility to use all the maven plugins.  In line with this, we’ll have Hudson integration in JDeveloper, so Maven will not only make it a lot easier to enable our projects for Hudson,  it seems that we’ll get a nice continuous integration environment as well!" Gert Leenders, Product Manager at Axi and Member of the Devoxx Steering committee.

"I am looking forward to the release of JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.2.0.0 for several reasons - the most important one is probably JSF 2.0 (and Facelets) support. With JSF 2.0 and Facelets, we can get rid of the JSP view engine (with all of its issues) and take advantage of other JSF 2.0 improvements such as HTTP GET support and use of annotations to simplify the configuration of managed beans. I am also looking forward to the next generation of true enterprise development capabilities in the form of integration with build tools such as Maven and Hudson; out-of-the-box support for Maven builds (and automated builds via Hudson) will bring "continuous build" capabilities to everyone, not just to large teams with the experience and wherewithal to develop this capability on their own. This should assist in bridging the gap between the two "camps" who can benefit from Oracle ADF's productivity; namely Oracle Forms developers and Java developers." John Stegeman - Oracle ACE Director.

Maven Integration with JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0.0)

The next part of entry is going to cover the new Maven integration both through a How-To that I've created and live on Oracle's Technology Network (OTN) and through a viewlet that I've created to illustrate how easy it is to leverage Oracle's JDeveloper Maven integration.

Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information. Maven provides a way to help with managing:

I've also created a simple viewlet that illustrates creating a Maven Project in Oracle JDeveloper as well as importing a Maven Project into Oracle JDeveloper which is available here.

Development Lifecycle with Oracle JDeveloper 11g

The last thing that I want to cover in this entry related to Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.2.0.0 is that of the Full Development Lifecycle supported by the new release. I've created a viewlet available on OTN that provides the following details:

  • Design
  • Coding
  • Debugging
  • Testing
  • Tuning
  • Building
    • ANT
    • Maven
  • Deploying
  • Team Productivity Center (TPC)
