You've probably heard of Oracle JET, but what do you really know about it? This program presents a wide-ranging discussion of the open source Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit -- what it is, how it’s used in the real world, and where it’s headed in the future. The panel for this discussion includes two community members who regularly develop with Oracle JET, and two members of the JET product team.

This program is Oracle Groundbreakers podcast #373. It was recorded live on stage at Oracle Code One in San Francisco on September 17, 2019.

“JET is a collection of open source libraries we started working on seven years ago. It’s what we decided to do for Oracle’s JavaScrtip solutions. We had done ADF, we’d done all kinds of things with Java, but we didn’t really have a JavaScrtip solution. So we created this modular toolkit, and we named it JET.”i>

"At Ecovue we specialize in implementing Webcenter API automation solutions. And one of the major gaps was having a dashboard or reporting tool which supports the users to be able to track or search for an invoice. To support that we developed a one-view invoice dashboard application using Oracle JET. JET has been very helpful to use in terms of building the UI."

"We use JET in two ways. The first is we create hybrid applications that can work as a mobile app or a desktop app. We also use the web component architectur to create reusable code snippets that we deploy on Oracle Content Experience, as well as on BBCS. So we can get the best in terms of user interface capabilities and reuse that across all of our clients."

“Another way to understand JET is as Oracle’s best practices for doing JavaScript UIs. This is how we do it in Oracle, and we’ve made it freely available, and it’s open source. So anyone can follow along in the way we are developing larger UIs and front-ends.”
