This year at OOW, like those from the past, will certainly be unforgettable. Lots of new announcements which I can't mention here and may not event know about are sure to surprise. I'll keep this short and sweet. For every session ADF, ADF Mobile, Oracle Developer Cloud, Integration with SOA Suite, etc... take a look at the ADF Focus Document listing all the sessions ordered by day providing time and location. For Mobile specifically check out the Mobile Focus Document.

OOW 2012 actually kicks off on Sunday with Moscone North demogrounds hosting Cloud. There's also the ADF EMG User Day where you can pick up many technical tips & tricks from ADF Developers / ACE Directors from around the world.

A session you shouldn't miss and a great starting point for the week if you miss Sunday's ADF EMG User Day for all of you TechoFiles is Chris Tonas's keynote for developers - Monday 10:45 am at Salon 8 in the Marriott - The Future of Development for Oracle Fusion - From Desktop to Mobile to Cloud. Then peruse the ADF Focus Document to fill out your day with the many sessions and labs on ADF.

Don't forge that Wednesday afternoon (4:30 - 5:30) offers an ADF Meetup which is an excellent opportunity to catch up with the Shakers and Makers of ADF from Product Managent, to customers, to top developers leveraging the ADF technology, to ACE Directors themselves. Not to mention free beer is provided to help you wind down from a day of Techno Overload.

JDBC Connection Pools in Glassfish

I've been attempting to configure Glassfish 3.1.2.2 for ADF 11g and the need arose to create a jdbc connection pool to my Oracle XE 11g database. While this is really very trivial there were no samples of how to do this and documentation, while good, rarely ever provides concrete examples. After fumbling around for a few minutes searching for an example I gave up and figured it out on my own. Here are the steps for any of you that may be in need.

This can be done either via the Glassfish command line tool asadmin or through the admin console. I'm doing this through the admin console.

  • Start Glassfish and connect to the admin console with the credentials you defined at installation: http://localhost:4848
  • Navigate to Resources | JDBC | JDBC Connection Pools and select New. Be sure to enter Resource Type & Datasource Classname under General Settings tab. You can go with the defaults for Pool Settings etc... View Image
  • Go to the Additional Properties tab and create username, password, and url properties with the respective values. View Image
  • Navigate to Resources | JDBC | JDBC Resources and select New. Be sure to enter the JNDI Name and select the Pool Name for the jdbc connection pool you created previously. View Image
  • Navigate to Configurations | server-config | JVM Settings and select the JVM Options tab. Add the values highlighted: -Doracle.jdbc.J2EE13Compliant=true is used to make sure the driver behaves in a JEE-compliant manner. View Image
  • To integrate the JDBC driver into a GlassFish Server domain, copy the JAR files into the domain-dir/lib directory, then restart the server. The JAR file for the Oracle 11 database driver is ojdbc6dms.jar.
    • Note: You can also use the glassfish provided jdbc driver oracle.jdbc.drivers/ojdbc6.jar. This is sufficient to copy into the lib directory.
  • Last thing, once you've configured your datasource, is to test it out. You can invoke a ping from the JDBC Connection Pool console to validate the db connection setup.

This is the datasource you will use for ADF Essentials 11.1.2.3 that just went live today (09/24/2012) so download the new ADF Essentials now! You will have to take a short survey prior to downloading the new ADF Essentials.

See Shay's blog on Deploying ADF Essentials Applications to Glassfish.

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.
